Gran Turismo 7 Might be Parking in Your PS4 As Early As 2014

Posted by Kell Andersen

Wait, has Gran Turismo 6 even come out yet?

Polyphony Digital has recently been doing the media rounds for the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive Gran Turismo 6. But not content to rest on its laurels, the company has already begun talking about the game's PlayStation 4 sequel Gran Turismo 7. In an interview with Top Gear, the Japanese studio's president Kazunori Yamauchi detailed the plans for the next-gen entry, stating, "We don't want to take too long on Gran Turismo 7. Best-case scenario? Next year." Exciting stuff.

The interview also sees Yamauchi promise that Polyphony Digital's debut racer on Sony's shiny new machine will be appropriately polished. "In Gran Turismo 6, we really had to tune the software 100 per cent to maximise the PS3's architecture," he said. "But of course, the PS4's hardware is much better, so I think that the overall quality of the game across the board will be boosted when you come to play it." In other words, you'll finally be able to see each individual leaf on the tree that you're about to careen into.

Will you be picking up Gran Turismo 6, or do you plan on playing the waiting game for its younger sibling? Take a sharp right turn in the comments section below.

I think that we'll get Gran Turismo 7: Prologue for Christmas 2014, and then Gran Turismo 7 proper a little later on. At least, that's what I hope.

hmmmmm.... I love Forza, I think until Gran Turismo implement "Simulation" type damage, I won't be able to appreciate it.
Thats assuming Simulation type damage isn't already implemented. Last time I played it was just little scratches to body work.

@get2sammyb They'll no doubt do that if they want to have a few years to spend on the game. I think most people would prefer a prologue at some point too.

Looking forward to GT6 myself though. More than I expected. Been playing GT5 a lot these past few days to get back into the groove. Its next gen now @1080p60FPS ;) lol Good to see the 3D tag on GT6, always though that it had the best implementation of the tech once you'd got your settings spot on

If PD can release 2 games with a 1 year gap I will eat my hat. Happy to, but will eat it nonetheless.

Cool, don't know why Forza can do it with no bitching(annually), but if GT does it, its "rushed "

@MadchesterManc so true! I'm on another play through in prep too. So fun to do B spec, it better stick around!!
I absolutely love Poly Digi, they treat us so fine. I can't believe 6 is coming so soon that they're already teasing us with a ps4 game. Kick. F'in'. Ass. (I'll kill them all if they put out a prologue btw!!!! Nooo!)

so in other words, GT6 ported & upgraded to PS4? GT6.5? as much as i want GT for ps4, i'd rather wait for it to be a true next gen GT, not a port or anything like that.
Unless they've been working on it simultaneously with GT6 for a bunch of years. Then it could be very, very good.
