Gran Turismo 7 to hit PS4 in '2015 or 2016'

PlayStation 4’s hardware should mean the next Gran Turismo game will be a lot easier to develop

Polyphony Digital’s Kazunori Yamauchi, the main man behind the Gran Turismo series has some positive words for fans of PlayStation’s popular racer.

Speaking to GamesTM, Yamauchi says the advancements offered by Sony’s 8th gen powerhouse are going to make things a lot easier and quicker for the development of Gran Turismo 7, leading to a much better game than Polyphony were able to bring to the PS3.

“Everything will be running naturally,” he said. “PS3 was much, much more difficult. The high quality of data that we have being rendered on the PS4 I think is going to make an incredible difference.”

“For GT 7, myself and my staff have a clear vision: to do everything we couldn’t do in GT 6,” Yamauchi added. “We want to make it very Gran Turismo. By that I mean it’s going to be a game that matches the very era that we live in, in 2015 or 2016.”

The last entry in the Gran Turismo series launched for PS3 on 5th December last year after initially being announced in November 2011, despite the subsequent reveal of PlayStation 4 during the game’s development GT 6 remained a PS3 title.
