Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi made an appearance at PSX SEA last Saturday, to promote the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport. While most of the presentation- both for the public and the media- revolves around mostly known details, we managed to ask about their plans in supporting offline tournaments. With the Sport Mode being quite a focus, due to the backing from the FIA as well having Sport in the game’s name, we were curious about the plans that developers Polyphony Digital have when it comes to offline tournaments, or any semblance of supporting pro players like other esport scenes, including racing games like Forza Motorsport, have started doing.
With Gran Turismo Sport looming, more details of the series debut to the PS4 have emerged. One thing in particular that we noticed is that the campaign mode won’t be as feature-filled like previous numbered titles.
Talking to Australian money-saving site Finder (via GTPlanet), series creator Kazunori Yamauchi stated that right now the developers are solely focusing on finishing Gran Turismo Sport and supporting it post-launch with DLCs.
“Gran Turismo 7 is not currently planned. All our studios are focused on Gran Turismo Sport and, once it is out, the DLC that follows afterwards.”
Last year, Yamauchi mentioned that Gran Turismo Sport isn’t just [...]
When Gran Turismo Sport was first announced, one big question mark was why was it not labelled as a new numbered sequel. The emphasis on online racing, with dedicated servers for races in Sport mode should be a big sign, but it will also scale down the content size- with around 170+ cars and 20+ tracks.
With these new screenshots of Gran Turismo Sport (via GTPlanet), it looks like we have more evidence why it isn’t not considered a numbered title. All of the main GT games have a sprawling campaign where you work your way from winning the Sunday Cup to gaining racing licences and then compete in faster cars on harder events- including rally and endurance events. For GT [...]
Sony has been making moves inside China, not only to sell more PS4s, but also support its budding games development scene. Dubbed the China Hero Project, this is Sony’s concentrated effort to help the Chinese studios in producing games by bringing in partners that can provide tools and assistance for the developers.
Announced at China Joy 2017, Streamline Studios will be providing the developers in the China Hero Project access to Streamframe, their proprietary development management platform, as well as on-site visits and consultations. This should help streamline (no pun intended) the development process for at least 10 different games that is part of this initiative, [...]
