Gran Turismo 7 Production to Conclude Within Two Years
Gran Turismo 6 is set to officially hit stores around the globe on December 6th, exclusively on PlayStation 3. However, according to producer Kazunori Yamauchi, players won’t have to wait too long for GT7, as is already under development and it will be completed in just a year or two.
In an interview with Famitsu, Yamauchi said that "the PlayStation 4 game we’ll likely call GT7 will be done in about a year or two." However, when talking about the new platform he said that he does not expect the new hardware in the PS4 to affect the game as much as hardware updates did when the PS3 debuted.
The PS4 features more memory, but it’s CPU performance should be nearly identical to the PS3. One thing is certain, the PS4 will not affect the "online community aspect of the Gran Turismo series" which "is the most exciting aspect of the franchise."
