PS4 owners are certainly excited for the coming of "Gran Turismo 7" which is believed to be released in 2017. While waiting for the next GT installment, Project Cars took over and became an instant hit among console gamers.

PushSquare reported that Sony assisted game publisher Bandai Namco in marketing the simulation in United Kingdom where it sold 63 percent of its copies. The same report noted that Gran Turismo's developer Polyphony Digital is also aiming to make the same numbers when it releases the "Gran Turismo 7" for the PS4.

Better audio expected

The former audio director for the Forza Motorsport racing series Mike Caviezel is now working on the "Gran Turismo 7," according to Air Herald, and this builds up the anticipation for the game even more. Caviezel has 18 solid years of experience in the audio industry and fans are really excited to witness his work 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 assured gamers that indeed, fans can 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 expected to have an extensive roster of licensed cars and will give players a detailed racing experience, Air Herald added. An enhanced audio will surely boost the additional and upgraded features of the game.

Possible release date

Master Herald claimed that the game developer is already working on the full version of the game. It was initially rumored to be released in 2015 or 2016 but there have been discussions saying that its release can be pushed as far back as 2017.

In a similar report, BreatheCast said that as early as now, players are already eager to see some improvements in graphics and gameplay aside from the audio quality.

Old cars will also be retained with an addition of some premium cars, as per series creator Yamauchi.

"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 in a previous Eurogamer report.

Two years seem to be a long time but "Gran Turismo 7" should be worth the wait, especially if the game creator delivers its promise.
