Head of Polyphony Digital, Kazunori Yamauchi, said in an interview that Gran Turismo 7 will be more like classic Gran Turismo games, and less Gran Turismo Sport.

Gran Turismo 7 is without a doubt one of the most anticipated releases for PlayStation 5 this year. In an interview for Octane , head of Polyphony Digital, Kazunori Yamauchi said that Gran Turismo 7 "will return to royal purpose of full volumes like Gran Turismo 1-4, and provide the best Gran Turismo experience at present."

The producer of GT series for more than 20 years also commented on the fact that GT Sport topped 9.5 million users and that Polyphony Digital went more into eSports waters with its last game, which some fans of the series did not like so much:

“We see Gran Turismo as an avant-garde title, and have consciously incorporated new challenges with each change of generation,” Yamauchi said. “That’s why each series has its own fans, but sometimes the changes come to users as a surprise. For example, with Gran Turismo Sport, which is available now, we took on a full-scale eSports challenge as our first online-dedicated title, but some people may have considered this bizarre. We acquired 9.5 million users as a result, but it didn’t sell like crazy from the beginning—more like appreciation gradually grew and support increased over the course of three years.”

This should cheer up all the old fans of Gran Turismo, who were not very enthusiastic about Gran Turismo Sport. Gran Turismo 7 could launch sometime this year, and Ray-Tracing will make sure that the most beautiful Gran Turismo title is ahead for us, as you can see it for yourself in the trailer below.
