Not long after Gran Turismo 6 released last year, creator Kazunori Yamauchi surprised everyone by saying that GT7 was only "a year or two away."
Now, Yamauchi has sort of clarified that comment. In a recent GamesTM interview, the GT guru said the next franchise installment won't be ready until 2015 or 2016. Okay, so that's quite the release window, but at least we know it has no hope of hitting this year.
Yamauchi also spoke about the development differences between PS3 and PS4, and how GT7 will run on Sony's new console:
"Everything will be running naturally. PS3 was much, much more difficult. The high quality of data that we have being rendered on the PS4 I think is going to make an incredible difference."
Yamauchi added that this team at Polyphony Digital has a "clear vision" of what GT7 will be like, and they want to "do everything we couldn't do in GT6." I'm good with that, aren't you? Here's hoping the next entry feels like a true next-gen experience…and if it doesn't come out until 2016, it had better.
