Gran Turismo 7 in development, standard cars to stay

But it won't make 2014, Polyphony Digital boss confirms.

Gran Turismo 7

Gran Turismo 7 is in development for PlayStation 4 at Polyphony Digital, Eurogamer reports.

Studio boss Kazunori Yamauchi told the website that work was underway, but that it won’t be out as early as 2014, as he said last year.

“We are working on the title,” Yamauchi said. “I don’t think it’ll make this year!”

Rather than work on a “Prologue” version of the game first, like some previous entries in the racing game series, Yamauchi said Polyphony will likely go straight into full development.

Additionally, the studio boss confirmed that the standard car models from Gran Turismo 4 will still likely be featured.

“I doubt that we’ll be throwing away the standard cars,” said Yamauchi. “Each car has its own fans. So I think we’ll hang on to the archive. In the meanwhile, some of those cars we may be able to make into Premium cars as they become available – but basically we’re more focused on increasing the number of premium cars.”

A release date for Gran Turismo 7 was not announced.
