In an interview with GameInformer, Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed that Gran Turismo 5‘s controversial “Experience Points” or “XP” system will not exist in Gran Turismo 6.

GI: “Will progress online carry over to your single-player campaign in any way?”

KY: “The experience system doesn’t exist in GT6, but that system where you still receive some sort of reward for online racing is probably still going to be there.”

Kazunori also offered a curiously coy response when asked about a return of Tourist Trophy, stating he “can’t say no”, refusing to completely rule out the possibility.

Finally, Kazunori made his first mention of Gran Turismo 7 on the PlayStation 4, stating that his team at Polyphony Digital will once again seek to get the most of the hardware.
