In a new interview with Octane, Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi revealed that Gran Turismo 7 will see the return of a full scale traditional Gran Turismo in the game. This is the style that many fell in love with in both the original Gran Turismo as well as Gran Turismo 4.
“We see Gran Turismo as an avant-garde title, and have consciously incorporated new challenges with each change of generation. That’s why each series has its own fans, but sometimes the changes come to users as a surprise. For example, with Gran Turismo Sport, which is available now, we took on a full-scale eSports challenge as our first online-dedicated title, but some people may have considered this bizarre. We acquired 9.5 million users as a result, but it didn’t sell like crazy from the beginning—more like appreciation gradually grew and support increased over the course of three years.”
Gran Turismo 7 is in development for Playstation 5 and will release some time this year.
