RUMOR:

Not sure how reliable this is, but this popped up when I simply typed in "Gran Turismo 7" on Google (Article was written 3 days ago):

Link.

Fans of the car racing game "Gran Turismo" might have to wait a little longer before they could get their hands on the newest title of the series. Word is out that the launch date of "Gran Turismo 7" has been pushed back to 2017 to include major upgrades in the game.

In March 2015, a report in Breathecast noted that Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi has pegged a later 2015 or 2016 release date for the new title. However, it seems that the team would not be able to make the said timeline if it wants to bring a major upgrade to the gameplay and graphics of "GT7."

According to Day Herald, many fans of the game have been looking for improvements in the visuals and the way the game is played after "GT6" was released. However, with the huge amount of upgrades the developers want to include in the new title, it would take a longer time to finish, hence the rumored 2017 release date.

Among the things that fans have expected to change and be updated in "Gran Turismo 7" is the game's sound quality, noted KPop Starz. While the audio in the previously-released title has been improved, it should be more enhanced when "GT7" arrives.

Yamauchi said that, "The high quality of data that we have being rendered on the PS4, I think is going to make an incredible difference."

Meanwhile, Master Herald reported that there is a possibility the developers in Polyphony Digital could make the game look more realistic in its gameplay and visuals, instead of the "slightly arcade-y direction that the franchise apparently took recently."

As the game is coming out exclusively on the PlayStation 4, the people working on the title would not be hindered by the specifications of other consoles. As such, all efforts could be brought to making the exclusive title one of the best.

While major changes are expected to arrive in "GT7," fans who enjoy using their old cars in "GT6" need not worry as Yamauchi assured players that most of the vehicles in the previous title's roster would still be in the new title.

"I doubt we'll be throwing away the standard cars. In the meanwhile, some of those cars we may be able to make into premium cars as they become available - but basically we're more focused on increasing the number of premium cars," said the CEO.

That, combined with the fact that 'Realty Today' doesn't really sound like the definitive place for video game scoops, should probably tell you plenty.

Doesn't seem like a good source at all but I wouldn't be surprised if Gran Turismo 7 is a 2017 game

I could see Gran Turismo 6 getting ported to PS4 before 7 releases so PS4 owners wouldn't wait too long for a solid sim racer.

Well, the article might be bogus, but i called this a long time ago. Even if they deny the reports, there's no way GT7 ships before 2017.

I'd slap a massive "rumor" on the thread title or just lock it given the source. The content linked to in the link in the OP are even lower quality and don't even directly state the things attributed.

Is it right? Probably. But a legitimate source needs to say it first.

Edit: Suggest lock. Posted by Manuella Pamintuan Lamorena (media@latinospost.com) ...That's quality!

As expected, I was hoping for a E3 reveal with a Holiday 2015 release. Will be buying prologue this year then.....

It's not even officially announced. Of course it'll be a while.

Wouldn't surprise me by that time 2 more Forza games come out.
Not sure that's a good thing. Cranking out too many sequels too fast isn't always good for franchise health. We'll see, though.

Yeah, I had a funny feeling about it.

The physics were completely built for GT6 in preparation for GT7, and they're much more emanding than before. And as far as visuals go
