Polyphony Digital: Gran Turismo 6 About 80% Complete, GT7 for PS4 “Will be Done in About a Year or Two”

Quite possibly being the last big game to launch on PlayStation 3 in 2013, Gran Turismo 6 speeds to stores on December 6th in North America and Europe.

With just a few months to go before the millions of copies are shipped to stores, Kazunori Yamauchi, CEO of Polyphony Digital, was asked by Famitsu Magazine (via Polygon) how far along the game is right now:

It’s really hard to give an accurate answer to that. The basic components are already complete, so overall I’d have to say about 80 percent. The physics engine, the steering controls; those parts of the user interface are things that we fine tune-right up to the very end. Things like the game modes, I can say that those are complete.

The Kaz that Sebastian doesn’t stalk then talked about the differences between the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, while also giving a little mention of Gran Turismo 7:

The PlayStation 4’s large memory size is a unique trait, 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 Gran Turismo, 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, I think, and I think the community aspect’s going to be vital there as well.

Do you actually think we’ll see Gran Turismo 7 before the end of 2015? Let us know in the comments below.
