Game: Gran Turismo

Platform: PS1

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Release Date: 20/03/1998

Gran Turismo 7 will "do everything" that wasn't possible to realise in the PS3-bound Gran Turismo 6, Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed.

Speaking to GamesTM, the Gran Turismo creator declared that Gran Turismo 7 – which is set to be released exclusivley on the PlayStation 4 – won't be hampered by the same technical restrictions that held back the GT games released on the PS3.

Most of this improvement is down to the extra power and memory optimisation that's possible on the eighth-gen console: whereas the PS3 was "really, really hard" to develop for, the increased ease of use and potential in the PS4 will allegedly make an "incredible difference".

Yamauchi-san also revealed a possible release window for Gran Turismo 7, by announcing the game will "match the very era we live in, in 2015 or 2016".

Despite the apparent focus on the next installment in the franchise, there are still "a few more major updates" for Gran Turismo 6 in the works. However, no additional information on these updates was revealed in GamesTM's interview with Kazunori Yamauchi.
