Speaking to Top Gear, Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi has confirmed that Gran Turismo is planned, and that they don’t want to take too long developing the game.
This means, in a best case scenario, that the game will arrive next year. While Gran Turismo 6 development was tough, he expects Gran Turismo 7 to get out the door much quicker, as “the PS4’s hardware is much better”, which means the overall quality will be boosted.
He also noted that he “respects” the competition, namely Forza: “The racing genre isn’t really that big in its entirety, so I’m glad that everyone works hard to boost the genre as a whole.”
It’s not a great way to market Gran Turismo 6, but it’s exciting that we’ll see the next generation of the racing simulation on PS4 so soon, particularly after the lengthy delays of the first PS3 title, Gran Turismo 5.
