Famitsu has spoken to Gran Turismo 6 producer, Kazunori Yamauchi, and he has revealed that the physics engine from Gran Turismo 6 – which has been upgraded since the GT Academy demo – will be shared by the currently unannounced Gran Turismo 7.
“The PlayStation 4’s large memory size is a unique trait,” said Yamauchi, “but in terms of CPU performance, the PS3’s Cell chip, while difficult to handle, is really capable. They both have different advantages. Besides, I think the online community aspect, one of the most fun parts of GT, doesn’t have anything to do with the platform.”
“The PlayStation 4 game which we’ll likely call GT7 will be done in about a year or two.”
Earlier in the year Kaz revealed that they did have a “have a PlayStation 4 version in mind” of Gran Turismo 6 but had decided to focus on the PlayStation 3.
A PS Vita version of the franchise is “unlikely” according to Sony’s President Of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida but a movie of the game is currently in pre-production.
