Gran Turismo 7 Dev Looking for Graphics, Physics, AI Engineers

Polyphony Digital currently has several open positions for its upcoming racing sim.

33. Gran Turismo 6

Gran Turismo 7 is certainly a thing and in development for the PS4 but it’s a ways off from release. However, development is progressing as indicated by recent listings from Polyphony Digital seeking engineers for graphics, sound, vehicle simulation and physics and AI.

It’s interesting to note some of the requirements. For instance, when looking at the listing for AI engineers, Polyphony is looking to develop a more human-like AI that recognizes ever changing conditions and tracks. Other positions include online engineers, game engine development engineers, game script engineers and much more. The key emphasis of Polyphony seems to be on realism as, with regards to sound engineers, it wants Gran Turismo 7 to “simulate the real world” and “audio is no exception”.

Gran Turismo 7 doesn’t currently have a release date but we know it will be out on PS4. What are your thoughts on the game and what features do you hope to see in it? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more information on the racing sim in the future.

    LOL the pressure of Forza 6 is getting at them.
    We haven’t even asked for DX12 to be used yet either.

      What pressure? More baked lighting with added baked night racing half assed rain, but oh yeah they have puddles now. GT doesn’t need to worry what Forza is doing Forza needs to worry what GT is doing because every iteration GT outsells Forza by at least 2:1

      Not true at all. GT6 sold less than 3 million copies according to a recent article stating GT as a series has sold 72 million total a huge number. Except. The last last 2 games account for 1/3 the series and account for 1/6 the sales. It’s also highly speculated the GT5 was postponed because of the release of Forza 3 which was a very impressive game in its time. I think it’s safe to say PD very much cars what Turn 10 puts out. Forza is considered the bench Mark for physics on console in the sim racer community.

      I’m a huge sim racing fan pc and console. GT being one of my all time favourites. I logged hundreds of hours on PS1 and PS2. However the series on PS3 did not impress me. GT5 was a let down that took way too long to come to market. GT6 came after the launch of PS4. Overall release timing of this series has been horrible. I feel that has continued into this gen.

      I do hope GT7 is as great as a game as it could be.

      We never asked for dynamic weather and lighting.
      That’s what Sony forget.
      And we have the best racer.

      Dynamic Rain would be great, like the rain in Driveclub, it looks real on the windshield, but the only races with lightning is endurance races,24 Huers Le Mans, I’ve never seen a real non-endurance race in thunder storms with lightning LOL!

      The best racer has always been and always will be, GT on Playstation.

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      But they chicken out and not putting out a version to compete we see

    • Hailey

      We’ll just have to wait til GT7 comes out. We’ll see how that goes then, but who knows?

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      We have locked 60fps. So yes will be interesting if they can match it.
      And we never asked for DX12 to be used yet either. So we could ask for
      Forza 7 to use it.

    • Hailey

      DX12 won’t do much to improve any performance or graphics…GT7 will have 60fps locked as well, it should be quite easy to accomplish I would think. PS4 already has some games locked at 60fps so I guess we’ll see. I also have an Xbox One along with PS4 and Wii U so it doesn’t matter what happens really, if I see a game I like I just buy it on the console I feel like playing it on. It’s just that ps4 is my fav system

  • Zubairu

    Hope this will release like end of next year time i am already done with Driveclub

    • Tech junkie

      Driveclub is not comparable to GT. I’m still waiting for a solid sim to come to the PS4. This game should be coming to market now. They have already said don’t expect it before 2017.

    • Mastercow

      Project Cars?

      Assetto Corsa also releases on consoles next year, will probably be make the wait for gt7 easier.

    • Tech junkie

      Project Cars is too much game or not properly optimized for the PS4, depending on how you want to look at it. I’d rather play on PC.
      Optimized exclusives is my main reason to game on PS4
