Gran Turismo Creator Kazunori Yamauchi has talked about Gran Turismo 7 a few times in the past, teasing in 2013 that it could be “done in a year or two,” then saying it wouldn’t be releasing in 2014.
Now, in an interview with GamesTM, Yamauchi talked up how the PlayStation 4 will benefit the development of Gran Turismo 7:
Everything will be running naturally. PS3 was much, much more difficult. The high quality of data that we have being rendered on the PS4 I think is going to make an incredible difference.
With GT7, Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital’s vision is to “do everything we couldn’t do in GT6.”
We want to make it very Gran Turismo. By that I mean it’s going to be a game that matches the very era that we live in, in 2015 or 2016.
If that last comment is to be believed, then we should see Gran Turismo 7 in either 2015 or 2016. As Yamauchi previously said, he doesn’t expect there to be a Prologue for the game.
When do you hope to see Gran Turismo 7?
