Polyphony Digital’s upcoming racing game has every fan of the license that revolutionized console driving a quarter of a century ago. And since it remains very discreet, it is difficult to know more. Fortunately, Kazunori Yamauchi is here.

Granted in an interview to the Japanese side octane, the father of “The Real Driving Simulator”, spoke about the direction of Gran Turismo 7. It will be an episode on the scale of the first and fourth episodes of the series.
Here’s what Yamauchi, recalling in this interview that his Japanese vision of the automobile shaped the series:
I think we’ve achieved something pretty ambitious with Gran Turismo Sport. That’s why with Gran Turismo 7 we’re taking 7 things we highlighted in Gran Turismo Sport, such as the championships, while also giving back a traditional large-scale experience like in Gran Turismo 1 and 4 to deliver the best Gran Turismo available. Fans of the older Gran Turismo may feel a little nostalgic.
In short, the best of the license.
We see Gran Turismo as a future-oriented title and have consciously combined new challenges with each generation change.
Because of this, each series has its own fans, but sometimes the changes take users by surprise. For example, with Gran Turismo Sport now available, we took on a major esports challenge with a special debut online title, but some people may have thought that was weird. We gained 9.5 million users, but the revenue wasn’t insane to begin with – appreciation steadily rose and support rose for three years.
Not far from 10 million for Gran Turismo Sport, even if it may be dissatisfied, we can end up talking about an interesting success, right? Now we can’t wait to switch to the next generation and see what surprises DualSense has in store for us.
Gran Turismo 7 is expected for PS5 in 2021 with no further details.
