"We don't want to take too long," series creator says.

We’re just two weeks away from the release of Gran Turismo 6, but Gran Turismo 7 could release as soon as next year, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has said.

“We don’t want to take too long on Gran Turismo 7,” Yamauchi told Top Gear at this year’s Los Angeles Motor Show. “Best-case scenario? Next year.

“In Gran Turismo 6 we really had to tune the software 100 per cent to maximize the PS3’s architecture, but of course the PS4’s hardware is much better, so I think the overall quality of the game across the board will be boosted when you come to play it.”

In comparison, Gran Turismo 6 is coming out three years after Gran Turismo 5.

Gran Turismo 6 is due out for PlayStation 3 on December 5.

    That would be epic but I doubt it’s coming next year.

    Would be happy if that were true though. :)

      Yeah, I don’t believe him either.

  • EspadaKiller

    Maybe the next 2 years…or Dec next year. Since the PS4 is much easier to develop than the PS3 thus definitely lesser time taken.

    They should shoot for January 2015

    Don’t really want anything from those guys anymore, very disappinting.

    Sure GT5 when it came out blew me away with the graphics, didn’t know that was possible on the PS3 but at what cost? Spend almost as much time on loading screens as in game playing.

    The long installs, the lying partial in game installs (already have like 13GB installed and it never grows yet it still shows that “install icon” sometimes)

    The disappointing (lied?) new engine in GT6, played the demo and saw 0 difference. They told us how amazing and new GT6 engine looks like lol.

    Even if they are capable of such a task, I’d rather that they spend two years working on it and release it at the same time as Forza Motorsport 6.

    GT6 IS STILL RE-USING assets from the PS2 era.
    Unless P. Digital starts rebuilding from scratch all their car models and tracks for the PS4, I AM NOT CONSIDERING GT7.

      What assets are they? Like the title screen font or something?

    December 2014 ad Poly: Sorry guys it was 2015 :P

  • DietSoap

    Then what would be the point of releasing 6 this year? Or Drive Club only maybe 9 – 10 months before it?

    A PS4 version of GT6 in 2014 would make a lot of sense, a GT7 in 2014 would both destroy GT6 sales and damage the GT brand overall.

    Regardless of if it comes next year, the turn around for PS4 should be way faster than PS3 was. I supposed all their problems and focus on PS3 was why it took forever on PSP? Not sure why it took them forever on that one.

    Still no PS Vita word on Gran Turismo is annoying.

    I wish they will just reveal GT 7. Please don’t release it too early
