The Gran Turismo franchise has been going strong ever since its first title launched in 1997, and it doesn’t look like the Sony-published series will be stopping anytime soon. In June 2020, PlayStation confirmed that a Gran Turismo 7 is in the works and under development. However, we did not receive a release date at that time, and almost a year later, we have only received a bit more clarity regarding a time frame for GT 7.
It seemed for quite some time that Sony planned to release Gran Turismo 7 at some point in 2021. And that was the case, as the new title was expected to go live this year. However, PlayStation did confirm earlier this year that a 2021 release will not happen at all.
During an interview that PlayStation head Jim Ryan did with GQ UK back in February, a PlayStation PR representative confirmed that the timeline for Gran Turismo 7 has shifted from 2021 to 2022. PlayStation stated that it was having COVID-related trouble with the development of the game, and because of the fluid situation, the company will announce a launch date in the near future.
It’s been over seven years since the launch of Gran Turismo 6, and it looks like it will be at least eight until GT 7 does officially go live. Until then, we’ll have to be on the lookout for any teasers, much like the one that PlayStation snuck into a DualSense promo in April.
We will update this guide to reflect any future updates regarding Gran Turismo 7.
