Gran Turismo 7 Coming To PS4 In 2014/2015 Says Polyphony Digital Boss

Kazunori Yamauchi, the boss of Gran Turismo franchise developers Polyphony Digital, has been discussing Gran Turismo 7 and its expected launch date. While Gran Turismo 6 isn’t even out yet Yamauchi told Famitsu, via Polygon, that Gran Turismo 7 would be arriving in 2014 or 2015.
“The PlayStation 4 game which we’ll likely call GT7 will be done in about a year or two, I think.”
While the PlayStation 4 should be able to handle a graphically better game much easier than the PS3, the Polyphony digital boss still thinks the PS3 has enough power to make Gran Turismo 6 an awesome game.
“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 GT, doesn’t have anything to do with the platform.”
Gran Turismo 6 is apparently “about 80%” done and will definitely be ready in time for the December 6th launch date on the PS3.
“It’s something that I get asked in every interview…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.”
