Gran Turismo 7 Coming out Sooner rather than Later; Possible Reveal at E3 Next Week
Kazunori Yamauchi, founder of the Gran Turismo series, during the Peugeot Vision GT event in Paris, talked about the continuing partnership between Peugeot and Gran Turismo for the next iteration of the series, Gran Turismo 7.
In a conversation with Spazio Games, Yamauchi discussed release date concerns for Gran Turismo 7, regarding the rumored 2017 release date saying:
“we are talking about Gran Turismo, people will not have to wait so long”.
His statement could indicate a 2016 release date for the highly anticipated simulator, and even a possible late 2015 launch for the game. In an interview in with Famitsu magazine, back in 2013, Yamauchi said that the release of Gran Turismo 7 could come in “a year or two (from 2013)”. Yamauchi also mentioned there will a larger number of premium cars, without revealing any specific figures, and that previous issues with the simulated damage and crash physics have been addressed.
We will likely find out more about Gran Turismo 7 at E3 2015 next week during Sony’s press conference
Sony has recently announced the time and date for its E3 2015 Press Conference, which will be held at 6:30 PM PDT on Monday, June 15. The event itself will take place at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles.
Sony did not reveal any more details, but there will surely be a ton of PlayStation announcements and some very exciting surprises. Naughty Dog is currently going “all hands on deck” on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, as they are probably preparing for a strong E3 2015 showing, to provide fans eagerly waiting to get a taste of the most anticipated PlayStation 4 game after the disappointing news of its delay.
Guerilla’s open world RPG, Horizon, is probably going to be revealed with hopefully some beautiful gameplay, and we might get a teaser of Sucker Punch’ new title. We can hope for a PS4 God of War announcement as well.
Insomniac will give us a glimpse of the Ratchet & Clank reboot title for the PS4, which is a re-imagining of the franchise set to release alongside the movie in 2016. We will likely get a better look at Project Morpheus, along with a few VR optimised titles, and probably a release date for the device.
The new title from Quantic Dream should most definitely be revealed, which will surely be something to look forward to, as their Dark Sorcerer demo at E3 2013 was truly something spectacular and demonstrated the potential of the PlayStation 4 hardware in the capable hands of the Quantic Dream studio, led by the visionary David Cage.
