Gran Turismo 7 gets an official release date
Polyphonic Digital’s next driving sim will be out in March next year
Sony has officially confirmed Gran Turismo 7‘s new release date.
Polyphonic Digital’s next racing simulation will be released on March 4 on both PS4 and PS5.
Sony had confirmed back in February that the game would not be released in 2021 and would instead be delayed to 2022.
Earlier this year Gran Turismo 7 head Kazunori Yamauchi said fans should expect a “full” experience from the racer, similar to earlier games in the series.
The PlayStation racing series’ most recent instalment, PS4’s GT Sport, deviated from past games by cutting the vast car collections of earlier entries and placing emphasis on competitive online driving and eSports.
However, speaking via an interview with Japanese publication Octane, Yamauchi said players should expect a more traditional experience from the upcoming PS5 instalment, in addition to the features introduced with Sport.
“In Gran Turismo 7, while inheriting elements such as the [FIA] championships that were realized in Sport, we are going to go back to the full-volume of Gran Turismo 1 and 4, and providing the best Gran Turismo experience today. So for those who know the old Gran Turismo, I think it will feel a bit nostalgic.”
