Gran Turismo 7 could release as early as 2014, according to Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi.
“We don’t want to take too long on Gran Turismo 7,” Yamauchi told Top Gear. “Best-case scenario? Next year. In GT6 we really had to tune the software 100 percent to maximize the PS3’s architecture, but of course the PS4’s hardware is much better, so I think the overall quality of the game across the board will be boosted when you come to play it.”
When asked about the threat of the Forza franchise, Yamauchi replied, “We always respect our competition. The racing genre isn’t really that big in its entirety, so I’m glad that everyone works hard to boost the genre as a whole.”
The latest entry in the series, Gran Turismo 6, is set to release December 6 exclusively on PlayStation 3.
