Gran Turismo Will Come to PS4, “Perhaps it Will be GT7,” Says Polyphony Digital CEO

With Gran Turismo 6 so far, we know it’s releasing for the PlayStation 3 on December 6th, and when it comes to a possible PlayStation 4 version, it’s only been said that it’ll “appear naturally.” - PSLS (Gran Turismo 6, Gran Turismo 7, PS4)

I think with how easy it is to port a game to PS4 we will see GT6 on the PS4 in mid 2014. Especially now with over 1 million preorders, the forecast for sales is going to be huge. There's no way Sony will want to miss the chance of putting their best selling franchise ever onto their next gen system. That way they will have sold millions on PS3 with the potential of millions more on PS4.

It seems as if Sony has huge plans for GT6, even more so than GT5. With the ease of development on PS4 I don't think Sony will want to push out GT7 too soon. I think anything under 2 years would be too soon for a next GT installment. It just seems more natural to port GT6 to PS4, hopefully summer next year, and after they have pushed all the DLC out start thinking about GT7 for a Nov '16 release.

As long as it isn't a 4-5 year wait, I'll be happy with GT7.
cyguration  +   342d ago
It will probably be a 4-5 year wait. lol

MOst likely not. 2 years probably.

You wont have to worry about that next gen. Remember the PS4 is x86-64 bit architecture with a pool of unified memory. You are talking about one of the easiest to develop on architectures.
DoomeDx  +   341d ago

They are talking about the engines

Engines are indeed easier to develop. But it didnt take Polyphony 4-5 years to make an engine on ps3. It took them 4-5 years to get everything PERFECT (Physics, car details etc etc).

Just because its a PS4, doesnt mean they will get the car physics and details etc done faster.
theWB27  +   342d ago
That's cool...all I ask for is, if it's GT7, that every piece of the game be a PS4 asset, and nothing carried over from PS3.

WB you getting a PS4 too? you crafty xbot troll you lol.
theWB27  +   342d ago
Hellz yeah I will...eventually. Hey, I'm all Xbox and Microsoft but I will NOT miss out on what PS4 brings.

It was beautiful, this whole gen, being able to have both the 360 and PS3. : )
Sci0n  +   342d ago
nice! I have a feeling you will end up falling in love with the PS4 and shelving your xbox done though lol.
theWB27  +   342d ago
Me shelve Xbox...never. But, when Uncharted 2-3 ..MGS and GOW released...I didn't touch my Xbox for quite some time.

I game where the games be...can't wait : )
neoMAXMLC  +   342d ago
*Every* asset? The cars already look incredible. Just look at those photomode screenshots!
theWB27  +   342d ago
So imagine how good it would look if it were built specifically for the ps4... games look better when they aren't ported up but instead built specifically for the more powerful hardware.

I would say those cars are already next gen. It's pretty clear that they modeled super high resolution cars that are toned down for the PS3 hardware. Just compare the trailers to actual gameplay. A bit of a noticeable difference at least when it comes to poly count and post processing.
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   342d ago
Just don't take forever please...

I would happily take GT6 for now.
cunnilumpkin  +   342d ago
they want to wait and see if it sells enough, they will be waiting a few years

like most devs/pubs they say screw making a game for a 15% audience with only a 2 million person market share, that's why launch games always suck
Narutone66  +   342d ago
I disagree on that, GT is a system seller. They don't need to wait and see if the console have enough user base to decide. During PS2 launch, GT helped the PS2 a lot.
cunnilumpkin  +   342d ago
they waited till 2010 with gt5, 4 full years after ps3 launched

though prologue did launch in 2008 two years into the console cycle

prologue only sold 5 mil
gt5 did over 10
jerethdagryphon  +   342d ago
Gt prolouge only sold 5 mill... thats more then 2 forza games combined gt5 matches all forza numbered games .. theres no only about gt it sells
Narutone66  +   342d ago
The reason why GT5 took 4 years is that PD was optimizing the game for the PS3. KY even admitted that PS3 is different from the older console, meaning harder to code for. But the fact remains, GT is a system seller, just like Halo is a system seller for the Xbox. So saying that PD is waiting for the install base to grow is not true.

Gran Turismo --- PlayStation
Gran Turismo 2 - PlayStation
Gran Turismo 3 - PlayStation 2
Gran Turismo 4 - PlayStation 2
Gran Turismo 5 - PlayStation 3
Gran Turismo 6 - PlayStation 3
Gran Turismo 7 - ???
And thus the cycle continues....

It's gonna have 4908409583049 cars and 9263 tracks and so realistic you're going to die (in real life) when you crash.
thereapersson  +   342d ago
The box should come with USB electrodes that attach to various parts of your body and jolt you when you get in a crash.
Irishguy95  +   342d ago
Crash? You mean bounce off the wall like nothing happened right?
theDECAY  +   342d ago
Isn't that was real race cars do?
theDECAY  +   342d ago
It IS a sim racer.
Irishguy95  +   342d ago
tOh disagrees...I must be wrong. Gt has great crash simulation and has no faults whatsoever
Knushwood Butt  +   341d ago
You're right, but on the flip side, if you put the car in the kitty litter and it ended your race, like it would do in real life, would you be here ranting about how great the feature is?

I doubt it.
Irishguy95  +   341d ago
No @above. I would applaud that. People scream sim sim sim and let gt away with such basic faults and then piss on forza for even lesser faults. Dont get me wrong though. Gt5 is my shit. That and my g25.

Options for damage or realism would be appreciayed from me. Dont **** up that bad = safer driver = More waty of risks = better sim. If you lost the race due to going off the track how hard would you try not to go off it¿?

U think it's GT based inside Greed Island ? lol
NateCole  +   341d ago
Its not the Ultimate Crash Simulator. Its the Real Driving Simulator.
yewles1  +   342d ago
That's what I've been saying, it would be a fruitless waste to break tradition and port GT6 to PS4 instead of just making a new entry for the new console like they always have, ESPECIALLY since it's as easy to develop on as they say it is...
SillyYou  +   342d ago
Sony probably wants another big driving franchise with Driveclub. I think they will release alternately Gran Turismo and Driveclub on PS4.

How many people here own every single Gran Turismo game?

I still own them.
medman  +   342d ago
I'm still scratching my head why we aren't getting treated to a gran turismo launch title for the PS4. That would have been freakin' amazing. It's pretty disappointing that it didn't happen, especially when I look at demos of GT6 for the PS3 and the only thing that I see is that the horrible a.i. hasn't improved one bit. What a disaster. Sorry to say I'm not going to be picking it up. I feel similarly about GTA V. I wish they would announce a PS4 version already. I'm ready to move into the next gen completely. I'm not interested in straddling the line between two generations unless it's to go back and play some of my fav's from this current gen on my ps3 or 360. But I won't be spending new game money on ps3 or 360.

Do you want a rushed Gran Turismo title or a polished one.

Who knows? maybe Tourist Trophy will be blended with Gran Turismo 7.

DigitalAnalog  +   342d ago
Exactly. I can't for the life me understand why you need 3 racing simulators with incremental upgrades to play on your system when it's practically the SAME game.

I'd rather have 1 or 2 very polished simulators to play for the generation. Personally, I think it's about time GT go the online route where the game evolves every year like the PC racing sims. As the PS4 is beginning to embrace online/cloud tech, it's a matter of time simulators can fully realize their potential upgrading it every moment till perfection.
Destrania  +   342d ago
I believe it will be GT7 and it will be in a few years. Polyphony isn't one to port a game, ever. They will build it from the ground up, and it will be incredible!

How can you not love Sony.... we can't even keep up with all they are giving us anymore, lol. But we'll damn sure try!!!!!

Will definitely be getting GT6 for the PS3 and whatever Sony/Polyphony calls it for the PS4.

Love playing the series.

Think GT6/PS3 would even outperform Forza 5/XBox ONE in terms of features ( night racing and weather ) and be on par in comparison to graphics. Honestly.
CaulkSlap  +   342d ago
They should do a conversion of GT6 before going for a ground up PS4 game. PS4 needs a Gran Turismo a lot quicker than PS3 got it. Lots of decent visual enhancements would be easy and they could reuse assets to speed up the process.
Felonycarclub8  +   341d ago
Leave GT6 for PS3 and make GT7 to take full advantage of the PS4, let the PS3 go out with a bang
RevXM  +   341d ago
After reading the article/interview Id say it makes sense if GT6 is a ps3 exclusive and that GT6 wont be for ps4.
Sure the engine is just about next gen ready, but Im not sure the content is apart from the high polycount car models ofc.

If PD truly likes to get the most out of a system then they wont settle with a simple port. I think its safe to say that the GT series wont see a ps4 release for some time.
