Kazunori Yamauchi, who was present at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed where a number of new Vision GT cars were unveiled, spoke with Eurogamer about work being underway for Gran Turismo 7.
Yamauchi insists that Polyphony Digital will progress right into the development of the full title rather than working on a teaser, as was the case with GT5 which was preceded by the Prologue title before the full release in late 2010.
One of the more controversial decisions going into the next iteration of the Gran Turismo franchise as it debuts on the PlayStation 4 is the decision to keep the Standard car models that persist from 2004’s Gran Turismo 4 moving forward:
“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 focussed on increasing the number of premium cars.”
