Once upon a time, Gran Turismo 7 used to be the peak of the racing sim genre. But it was soon upstaged and overtaken by the competition, such as Forza Motorsport, which took from what Gran Turismo did well, and continued to add to that by being progressive and adding features that would be expected.

Gran Turismo, by comparison, began to feel painfully antiquated, and lost a lot of its sheen. The games still don’t even have a damage model, for instance. The problems with Gran Turismo 5 and 6 caused the games’ performance to suffer, and surely must have gotten Polyphony Digital’s attention, because according to this new translation GTPlanet received, the developers are promising better things for Gran Turismo 7.

“Yamauchi has guaranteed that the seventh chapter will solve many problems related to the physical impacts and simulation of damage, two aspects that have always been taken seriously by fans of this saga. It also confirms a greater number of premium cars in Gran Turismo 7, although – for the moment – Yamauchi-san has preferred not to say too much about figures.

“Finally, when asked about the alleged arrival of Gran Turismo 7 in 2017, as initially feared by some sources, it came a blunt denial: “People will never wait so much.”

Will Gran Turismo perhaps be featured at E3 this year? We’ll find out next week! Stay tuned.

    They have been running sh4t scared from Forza for years.
    Probably be 30fps and then be praised by Sony fans for been so.

      If they drop from 60fps to 30fps I doubt everyone will praise them. Also, Polyphony has not been running, they are still churning out updates and new content monthly. Sure they may be past their prime, but the competition is only a good thing for all racing games.

      He’s impersonating MisterX Media, lol!

  • You Are Flat Out Wrong

    Plenty of time to upgrade those standard cars from PS1 to PS2. And looking at DowngradeClub, plenty of time to look like a PS2 game.

    PC Gaming is the only place where you get REAL driving simulators.

      The Reason why xbox users never wanted that game

  • Cenk Algu

    I am a great GT fan.I played every game till now but honestly GT5 and 6 were definitive crap.I hope they learned from their mistakes.

    • Daniel Johnson

      I also played all of them, but happen to think GT6 is the best of them all. Any specific reasons you thought it was crap? I have also had a chance to play some Forza, that is also a great game. In fact I now own Project CARS on PC and it is really good as well. All of the games have their own strong suits. I honestly still think GT6 has the most realistic physics of the batch, though I haven’t been able to spend any time with a wheel on Forza, and only a small amount with Project CARS on my very much underpowered PC.
