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.
