PS4 Will Make an “Incredible Difference” in Gran Turismo 7, Says Series Creator

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.”

He added:

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?
