Gran Turismo 7 In Development For Post-2014


It was always going to be very difficult to release a next-gen racing game from the same studio on entirely different consoles within the span of a fiscal year. That’s why it is of little surprise that, while Gran Turismo 7 is in development, it very likely won’t be released later this year.

Additionally, as I’m sad to relay to you, it appears that standard cars will also make their return in Gran Turismo 7. That means that cars from previous generations of Gran Turismo games (possibly all the way back to 2004’s Gran Turismo 4 on PS2) could be using the same level of assets and using the same code from the 6th generation of consoles while being brought to the 8th generation.

While Gran Tursimo 4 is one of my personal favorite games from the PS2 era, the defense that “each car has its own fans” is a red herring. The fact is that Gran Turismo 7, like previous iterations of the series, will likely market itself on the amount of cars it has available, the amount of tracks and other numbers-based ways of self-promotion. Porting over old code is just lazy, and while standard cars have been given premium treatment in updates in previous game titles, rushing to market is the exact same premise of selling a half-baked pie. No matter how good it looks on the surface, the core of the product just isn’t the same.
