Gran Turismo Sport Isn’t Gran Turismo 7, Says SCEE CEO
Gran Turismo Sport was just revealed at Paris Games Week, and Sony wants to make it clear that it is not Gran Turismo 7.
Speaking with Eurogamer, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe CEO Jim Ryan explained that Sport will be like the Prologue games, but more substantial.
We’re not announcing Gran Turismo 7 at this stage.
Fair to say [series director Kazunori Yamauchi] has been making these games for some considerable time now. I think it’s reasonable to assume that something else might come down the road. Is it a Prologue? No, I think it’ll be more than that.
The old days, when the games were offline, the experience was defined by what’s on the disc. You had a distinction between a Prologue and a full GT, it was very stark. When the game becomes more of an online connected experience, that distinction blurs. This will be much more than a Prologue type experience.
A beta for the Gran Turismo Sport will hit sometime in 2016, but in the meantime, let us know your thoughts on what you think the racing game will be like.
