Back in 2013, it was first reported that the next installment in the Gran Turismo series could hit the PlayStation 4 sometime in 2014. Despite earlier claims that the Gran Turismo 7 might not get ready for the prime time later this year, creater Kazunori Yamauchi apparently differs to some extent.
Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed that the GT7 is in the development stage; however, gamers may not able to play the title until 2015. "We are working on the title," Yamauchi told Eurogamer, but he also added that "I don't think it'll make this year!"
Although Yamauchi didn't reveal what new to expect from the next-generation title, he, however, did suggest that Polyphony will concentrate on the development on "the full game rather than working on a taster".
"I don't think it'll be a Prologue," Yamauchi told Eurogamer on the sidelines of this year's Goodwood Festival
Polyphony is expected to use same vehicles from prior games, some of which date back as far as 2004's Gran Turismo 4.
"I doubt that we'll be throwing away the standard cars," said Yamauchi. "Each car has its own fans. So I think we'll hang on to the archive. In the meanwhile, some of those cars we may be able to make into Premium cars as they become available - but basically we're more focussed on increasing the number of premium cars."
Just for the reminder, the Gran Turismo series has been developed by Yamauchi and his team at Polyphony Digital. The fames series first debuted on Sony's original PlayStation in 1997 and has been among the greatest console games ever launched. Sony released the GT6 on the PlayStation 3 in December of 2013. The GT7 is currently being developed for the latest-generation home console - the PlayStation 4.
