The racing sequel – Polyphony’s first instalment since 2017’s GT Sport – was shown running on the next-gen PlayStation console during a digital event on Thursday.
PS5 will support 8K graphics when it launches during the 2020 holiday season, but Gran Turismo creator Yamauchi has said he doesn’t believe increased display resolution is the key to pushing the long-running racing series forward.
“I think, display resolution-wise, 4K resolution is enough,” he reportedly told press in February, when discussing the future of the series at an event attended by GT Planet.
“Rather than a spatial resolution that you’re talking about, I’m more interested in the advancements we can make in terms of the time resolution,” he said.
“In terms of frames per second, rather than staying at 60 fps, I’m more interested in raising it to 120 fps or even 240 fps. I think that’s what’s going to be changing the experience from here on forward.”
Yamauchi has previously said the next Gran Turismo game will incorporate the “past, present and future” of the series.
