Gran Turismo 7 For PlayStation 4 “In A Year Or Two”

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.

  1. I think I’ll just pick up GT6 for PS3 and if it comes to PS4 so be it. I really would love to have GT on Vita. The PSP version was enjoyable but needed structure.

    • The only reason I really want GT on PS4 is because then I will be able to sell my PS3!

  2. There will be a GT7 on PS4 in a couple of years?

    Barely a reveal!

  3. ha ha, everyone just expects it and he knows it.

  4. The Chinese democracy of video games.

  5. so if this follows the same scenario as GT5 for PS3 was supposed to be in a year or two after launch, we can expect GT7 on PS4 around 2018 then :)

  6. I guess I’ll be buying a ps4 in a year or two then.

  7. Then we’ll find out what the PS4 can really do with Polyphony at the wheel.

  8. I can wait. Driveclub looks like a lot of fun and the game features Aston Martins so I’m good.

  9. Yawn, when has gran turismo EVER been a launch title? In fact is usually 5 years in, so 1 to 2 years is shorter than usual.

    • It didn’t mention launch. :-\

  10. Seems about right, although i’m sure many will be disappointed that GT6 isn’t being ported over to PS4.
