Yamauchi plainly stated that a new Gran Turismo game is coming, confirming that "obviously we're working on the next Gran Turismo already." However, he wouldn't confirm if it will be a new Gran Turismo Sport title or a sequel to Gran Turismo 6. Whatever the game is, Yamauchi said it aims to be a the "complete form of Gran Turismo."

"I think the next title that we're going to create will be a combination of the past, present and future--a complete form of Gran Turismo," he said.

With the PlayStation 5 coming, and rumored to release in Holiday 2020, it's thought that a new Gran Turismo game would release for the new, more powerful hardware. Yamauchi didn't confirm anything, but he said that more power will help provide better virtual reality experiences.

"I don't think that there's anything else that requires that much processing power," he said. "I really like VR; I'm one to believe in the possibilities of it, and it's very suited for a driving game."

The latest Gran Turismo title is Gran Turismo Sport, which was released in 2017 for PlayStation 4. Before that, Gran Turismo 6 was released on PlayStation 3 in 2013.
