"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."

Prologue at end of this year maybe?

But to actually see damage on the cars is nice.

After the mess PD seem to be in of recent years I'm not going to hold my breath they will be able to deliver a game I actually want to play.

But we'll see. Hopefully they will surprise and deliver a game like the original GT.

So when they said 2015/2016 a while back I was kind of hoping it wouldn't be right at the end of 2016 but it looks like it will be now.

Hope its worth the wait.

3 years is insane?

This is fucking crazy. Such a bad management. Whoever thought making GT6 for PS3 was a good idea is an idiot.

Should have waited and released that game on PS4 this year or last year. Seriously wtf.

I sort of agree, but just because Microsoft has made Forza an annualised franchise, I don't think that should give Sony/PD a reason to release GT games at a faster rate. 2016 isn't so bad, then a GT8 in 2019(?) towards the end of the cycle.

Do we know how much GT6 sold?

I too am hoping for a prologue later this year, with some of Sony's bigger releases getting pushed back to 2016. I think it would be a great opportunity for Polyphony to test the waters and get some fan feedback, possibly introduce a new feature, (livery editor maybe) and see how things go. Gran Turismo 7 needs to impress because the competition is getting pretty tough.

Agreed. Not a smart decision and I am shocked a Remastered edition hasn't come out for PS4.

Wow me please PD. I'd love to see huge crashes pan out in front of me with debris flying everywhere.
And explosions,fire and explosions ;-)

For GT5 we had trailer after trailer after trailer and it took them what, 5 years to release it? Now at least they are quiet and hopefully preparing for an early 2016 launch.

Why are people assuming 2016 based on what he said here? I mean thats the most logical scenario but 2015 is also before 2017.

GT6 let them milk their PS3 efforts before moving to PS4. Last year wasn't feasible but this year was probably considered at some point as was a move of GT6 to PS4 via remaster but both were rejected to both polish GT7 and to avoid GT6 coming too soon before GT7 on PS4.

We'll know for sure in 6 days. I think it's hitting next Spring.

Reveal in 2016, release in 2016. A couple of insiders doubt it'll show at e3 next week.

crash physics should not be the priority.
they should be, in this order:

-1080p/60
-even better driving physics
-sound
-all premium cars
-G27 support
-better crash physics.

3 years sounds reasonable and about the best we can expect from PD. I'm curious to see if they will reveal it at E3.
