A little under a year has passed since Gran Turismo 7’s release. Despite a challenging and contentious beginning, Polyphony Digital, the game’s developer, has been working hard in recent months to make amends. It appears like Polyphony has started working on its next project right away now that the game is in a much better state than it was.
As per Kazunori Yamauchi, the designer of Gran Turismo, production on the upcoming Gran Turismo game has already begun, and he made this revelation in an interview with the Japanese publication Game Watch.
Unfortunately, there is no idea what level of production this game is currently at, but Yamauchi says he can’t really speak much about it. Given how long between the release of Gran Turismo 7 and Gran Turismo Sport, it’s hardly surprising that development on the next game has already started.
Gran Turismo 7 was in the works even before the one before was launched in 2019, demonstrating that there isn’t typically a huge delay between releases. In addition to the fact that Polyphony has already launched a game this generation, it seems possible that the PS5 will see the release of a second Gran Turismo title. But let’s cross our fingers.
Even if a new Gran Turismo game may not be released for a few more years, 2023 will be a significant year for the series. The PS VR2 will be offering current Gran Turismo 7 customers a free VR version once the system itself debuts on February 22. That’s the first thing there is to look forward to.
The Gran Turismo movie, which will depict the real-life tale of a Gran Turismo player breaking into the professional racing scene, will thereafter be released in theaters on August 11. There is a lot for series fans to anticipate, and the possibility of a new game is simply the icing on the cake.
