SCEE’s President and CEO Jim Ryan: “We’re Not Announcing Gran Turismo 7 at This Stage”
Gran Turismo Sport was announced during Paris Games Week, and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s president and CEO Jim Ryan wanted to make it clear that it’s not Gran Turismo 7.
He said that they aren’t announcing Gran Turismo 7 at this stage, but Gran Turismo Sport is “more than [a Prologue].”
“We’re not announcing Gran Turismo 7 at this stage.”
“Fair to say [series director Kazunori Yamauchi] has been making these games for some considerable time now. I think it’s reasonable to assume that something else might come down the road. Is it a Prologue? No, I think it’ll be more than that.”
“The old days, when the games were offline, the experience was defined by what’s on the disc. You had a distinction between a Prologue and a full GT, it was very stark. When the game becomes more of an online connected experience, that distinction blurs. This will be much more than a Prologue type experience.”
Gran Turismo Sport will release in 2016 exclusively for PS4.
