Gran Turismo 6 for PlayStation 3 isn't even out yet, but its sequel could land on PlayStation 4 sometime next year, Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi has said.

"We don't want to take too long on Gran Turismo 7," Kazunori told Top Gear. "Best-case scenario? Next year. In GT6 we really had to tune the software 100 percent to maximize the PS3's architecture, but of course the PS4's hardware is much better, so I think the overall quality of the game across the board will be boosted when you come to play it."

In September, Yamauchi said Gran Turismo 7 for PS4 would be ready in about a "year or two" and will feature a significant community component, though this was not specified. If Gran Turismo 7 is released in 2014, it will arrive alongside DriveClub, another first-party racing game.

Top Gear also asked Yamauchi how he feels about Gran Turismo 6 going up against Microsoft's own racing game, Forza Motorsport 5. He explained that competition is good because it raises the racing scene overall.

"We always respect our competition," he said. "The racing genre isn't really that big in its entirety, so I'm glad that everyone works hard to boost the genre as a whole."
