Gran Turismo Developer Polyphony Digital Opens New Studio In Japan, New Sub-series Coming?

Gran Turismo series developer Polyphony Digital has opened up a new studio in Ueno, Japan.

Established in 1998, Polyphony has primarily worked on developing Gran Turismo titles for the Sony’s Playstation consoles as a first-party developer.

The Ueno studio which seems to be in full working function now considering the low number of job offerings on their website, is the Polyphony’s third main gaming development focused studio in Japan. They also have studios in Amsterdam, NE and Los Angeles, USA.

The studio now also supposedly employees over 170 employees if this page is up to date, which is fairly big.

The last mainline GT title was Gran Turismo 6 released on the PS3 back in 2013. On the PS4 we’ve so far only gotten GT Sport that has been excellently supported with free content to this day since its released back in October of 2017.

Polyphony Digital has been often criticized for huge gaps between GT game release, could this developer help speed up the development process or lead to the creation of a new sub-series like Sport? I wouldn’t mind an open word GT game like the Forza Horizon series.
