Upcoming Gran Turismo Game Will Make Full Use Of The Processing Power Of Next Gen Consoles

Gran Turismo has been one of the franchises that have come close to real-life racing as anyone else could, and ie looks like the next Gran Turismo installment might be the most complete form of the game.

Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi spoke with GT Planet about the game in which he said, “Having done all these World Tours, it gave me the opportunity to feel the history of Gran Turismo. It gives me pointers and hints of the things we should make sure that we do in the future of the series.”

Yamauchi did certainly confirm that a new Gran Turismo is being worked on but did not specify whether it would be Gran Turismo Sport title or a sequel to Gran Turismo 6.

The graphics have always been a key focus for the Gran Turismo games, and with the inevitable release of the next-gen consoles, with powerful hardware, it will certainly bring a new dimension for racing games.

Yamauchi also spoke about the need for the processing power of these game and VR, “I don’t think that there’s anything else that requires that much processing power.  I really like VR; I’m one to believe in the possibilities of it, and it’s very suited for a driving game.”

It looks like Polyphony Digital has something exciting in the plan for the upcoming Gran Turismo title, we will keep updating on this as and when we have more information.
