    At the time I took it to mean - GTS is is all you're getting on PS4, we aren't working on a GT7 for release in a year or two (since people have come to expect 2 main series releases with one right at the end of the gen) so if you're holding out for that, just forget it and jump on GTS.

    That's part of what I meant with the "lost in translation". For sure I was being sarcastic, but truth is stranger than fiction. Was he just misunderstood?

    GT7 not "currently" planned by Polyphony staff or start pre-production development immediately in 2017 after GTSport released doesn't mean Kaz wasn't already thinking up of ideas for the next entry, or that a small portion of the dev team wouldn't start work on GT7 planning the next year. GT7 being announced doesn't refute Kaz's original comments in 2017, a game we don't even know when is going to release but definitely not in 2020.

    “Gran Turismo 7 is not currently planned. All our studios are focused on Gran Turismo Sport and, once it is out, the DLC that follows afterwards.”

    Did you ever get GT Sport? What about Project Cars 3. I got it on launch and like it OK. Needs some fixing but game play is good. I was burned out on Sport after playing weekly since it launched so the car and track variety on PCars3 is welcome until GT7 is out.

    At the time this article was written, PD wasn't thinking about GT7. Saying "it's not currently planned" doesn't mean "no plans at all or ever", so whoever wrote the article didn't understand what Kaz meant. Funny how one word can throw someone off the trail completely.

    That's a blast from the past, I'm feeling old! :lol:

    I did! Absloutly love it and feel it's the most polished racer I've ever played. Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy it, did you feel their was a lack of content? There's no question it was lacking in comparision to other GT's but I really loved the process of having it always installed on my PS4 and every few months, free content would be added and combined with the daily rewards, I felt it was a fresh new way to enjoy GT. Obviously, the idea GT7 may return to the Pokemon style 'Gotta catch them all' is exciting but I'm concerned it'll revert to a grind to do anything.

    Must admit, didn't play Project CARS 3 because of the somewhat negative reaction and I've been playing other games and racers over these past few months so didn't feel it appealed to me. If there's a sale on Steam, I might pick it up to give it a fair crack!

    During end of 2017 to now, I loved GT Sport, Dirt Rally 2.0, Forza Horizon 4, F1 2018 and Hot Shot Racing from the racing genre.
