"Gran Turismo 7" will reportedly be announced during the E3 2015 Sony conference on June 16–18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and many fans are hoping that this will also be its release date.

GamePur said fans are expecting "a great leap" from the upcoming installment since the current release offered only a slight improvement compared to the previous iterations.

"If Polyphony Digital really makes an announcement in Los Angeles, the racing game could release in the glory of 1080p and 60fps, supporting Virtual Reality (VR) as the franchise did with 3D, in 2016," noted GamePur.

CNET has learned that Sony has been developing its VR capabilities, especially with the introduction of the VR headset called Morpheus.

A new prototype of which is expected to come out next year with "a lot of improvements" though sources say it still looks like the initial one they released. However, President of Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment Shuhei Yoshida said its technical improvements will provide better gaming experience.

As for features, the game is expected to offer better audio with Air Herald noting that the former audio director for the Forza Motorsport racing series, Mike Caviezel, now working on the "Gran Turismo 7." Caviezel has 18 solid years of experience in the audio industry and fans are really excited to witness what he has in store for the game.

"The Forza Motorsport racing series has been known for its audio over the years, which is why many people are excited that Caviezel is coming to work on the game," explained Air Herald.

Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi also assured gamers that they can indeed expect better audio quality in Gran Turismo's next installment.

"I think the quality of the sounds in Gran Turismo 6 will be improved, but most of the work will be done in Gran Turismo 7," he told Eurogamer in 2014.

The "Gran Turismo 7" is also anticipated to have an extensive roster of licensed cars and give players a detailed racing experience. Old cars will also be retained with an addition of some premium cars, as per series creator Yamauchi.  

BreatheCast reports that as early as now, players are already eager to see some improvements in the graphics and gameplay of the game. Additionally, an enhanced audio will surely boost the additional and upgraded features of the game. 

"I doubt we'll be throwing away the standard cars. Each car has its own fans. So I think we'll hang on to the archive. 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," Yamauchi said.

Fans of the game are looking forward next month for E3 2015 where Sony is expected to unveil more information about "Gran Turismo 7."
