Shuhei Yoshida Wants GTA 7 to Support PlayStation VR

Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, has said he’d like to see the next GTA videogame on PlayStation 4 support the company’s virtual truth headset.

In an interview with Eurovideogamer, Yoshida discussed gaming properties that would be well suited for the device, which Sony officially branded PlayStation VR at Tokyo Game Show 2015.

“[In the] many trial tests we’ve been doing, some genres just work fine,” he said. “One of those genres is racing videogames.

“So when GTA comes out on PlayStation 4, I’d like to see it support PlayStation VR, yeah.”

Although a new entry in Polyphony Digital’s simulation racing series has not been announced for the PlayStation 4 yet, Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi, who created the GTA series, previously said GTA 7 will probably launch for PlayStation 4 before 2017.

In September 2015, two years after the release of GTA 6 for the PlayStation 3, Polyphony released the course editor. Called the “GT6 Track Path Editor,” it lets users pick one of four themes and build a bespoke track around it.

Sony still has not confirmed when PlayStation VR will be available. PlayStation president Andrew House has said the headset will be priced “as a new gaming platform,” but did not provide any specific figures.
