Gran Turismo 7 Could Get a Strong AI update by the End of 2022

Did you know that the developer as Polyphony Digital are working hard on making the AI in their game more realistic and more competitive?

That’s right, the team is said to be working on an update that will make the AI in the game more like real life drivers.

What their working on is the well known Sophy AI.

Why is GT7 working to improve its AI?

An AI improvement is something that has been requested by fans for a long time, and it looks like the team is finally getting around to it.

In fact there lately have been lots of criticism about the AI performance in GT7.

You never feel like you’re racing against actual people in Gran Turismo, despite the game’s AI behavior having advanced significantly since the series began in 1997.

GT7’s artificial intelligence opponents are too “shy” and rarely fight for position.

And that’s Polyphony wants to change this with its new Sophy AI learning system.

The Sophy AI is an artificial intelligence system that is designed to truly make the AI in the game more realistic and more competitive.

The team is said to be working on an update that will make the update happen as soon as they can.

Sophy is a cutting-edge AI learning system that was unveiled earlier this year in February. This product is the result of a collaboration between Sony AI and Polyphony Digital and it has already shown to be faster than the best Gran Turismo players in terms of lap time.

In the GT SPort series, it even outpaced Lewis Hamilton’s record Nurburgring lap time by a whopping 17 seconds!

Kazunori said that Sophy will be added to GT7 in a future update, but didn’t say when exactly this would happen.

Will the AI update come before the end of the year?

According to some rumors, yes, the AI update is supposed to be released by the end of the year.

We will have to wait and see if this is true or not, but it would be great to see the AI in the game become more realistic and more competitive.

These rumors are mainly based on a live stream discussion at the World Series Showdown Nations Cup where in Italian it was leaked by the Gran Turismo Youtube Channel that “We will put it (The Sophy AI update) in the game before the end of the year if all goes well.”

This is the first time an official source has hinted at when the Sophy AI update will arrive.

What do we know about Sophy AI?

While we sit on our hands waiting for the update, The AI has actually already competed with professional Gran Turismo players such as Igor Fraga and Valerio Gallo.

GTPlanet reports that, in the first race at Sardegna Windmills, Sophy’s cars came in first and second place. However, Valerio Gallo – who is Gran Turismo World Champion – beat her AI car in the second race held at Lake Maggiore.

Kazunori has suggested that Sophy will be intended to act as a “teacher that will teach driving to players, a student that will learn sportsmanship from players, and as a friend to race with.” He also stated that Sophy could control AI drivers in a new B-Spec race director mode ” which sounds very interesting!.

Conclusion

So there you have it, everything we know so far about the Sophy AI update and when it will arrive in Gran Turismo 7.

The team is said to be working hard on making the AI in the game more realistic and more competitive, and it looks like we could see the update as soon as the end of the year.

We will have to wait and see if this is true or not, but it would be great to see the AI in the game become more realistic and more competitive.
