Looks Like Gran Turismo 8 is Entering Production

Although Gran Turismo 7 hit the market less than a year ago, Polyphony Digital is already said to begin work on the next installment of the iconic racing game series.

Released last March, Gran Turismo 7 should receive a few more years of updates. The next one will hit the game on February 22 and will introduce the VR mode to the game, universally praised by journalists. However, the support of the current title does not mean that the developers are not already thinking about the next installment.

Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi gave an interview to Game Watch (via PushSquare), in which he talked about, among other things, the upcoming Gran Turismo 7's VR update, as well as plans for the next installment of the popular racing series.

The journalist asked the developer what he would still like to achieve in the future of Gran Turismo and what is missing from the current gameplay due to the capabilities of the current generation of PlayStation consoles. In response Yamauchi revealed that the team already has a concept and is currently starting to develop the next title. He added that he could not share further details for now.

Game Watch finally added that the next installment of Gran Turismo will most likely be optimized for Sony's new device. Recall that the moderately praised 7th installment was created as a title combining the last and current generations of consoles, so Polyphony Digital has not yet utilized the full power out of the PS5. In the case of the next installment, the developers could already offer us the maximum capabilities offered by the Japanese platform.
