Sony also confirmed that they have a PlayStation 4 version of Gran Turismo “in mind.” No specific dates have been given.

All of this goes together with a leak that a new partnership with KW Automotive, a suspention company, and tire manufacturer Yokohama Rubber have helped create GT6’s new systems. As for online events, you will be able to create your own tornaments that can be completed online.
