Gran Turismo 7 was announced for the PlayStation 5 during Thursday’s reveal event, and although an official release date was not officially revealed as of yet, fans are currently speculating the timeline. The flagship racing sim for Sony has a storied history of excellent real-world physics, as the newest entry into the franchise looks to continue that trend.
Developer Polyphony Digital has a history of delaying the release of their titles to ensure quality and polish, so even though the PS5 is slated for a Holiday 2020 release, Gran Turismo 7 may not see a release for the next-gen console until 2021 the earliest. It is currently unknown how far along in the development cycle the title currently is.
Gran Turismo 7 Release Date Window
GT7 will be the latest release since the Gran Turismo Sport entry hit PS4 back in October, 2017. With no release date shared, if the game is a launch title, we could expect to see it hit shelves (and digitally) sometime in November, 2020. A popular leaker has stated that the Xbox Series X will be available for eight weeks in 2020, while the Playstation 5 will be available for just six. This would put the Xbox release around Nov. 6 and the PS5’s around Nov. 16-20.
As with all leaks, this information should be received with skepticism and taken with a grain of salt, and until we have official word from Sony we are largely in the dark until more concrete details become available.
