Gran Turismo 7 has been delayed into 2022.
Sony has announced that the latest entry in the PlayStation-exclusive racing sim franchise, Gran Turismo 7 is now planned for a release next year, after pandemic-related production issues.
In a statement provided to GQ, a Sony spokesperson wrote: “GT7 has been impacted by Covid-related production challenges and therefore will shift from 2021 to 2022. With the ongoing pandemic, it’s a dynamic and changing situation and some critical aspects of game production have been slowed over the past several months. We’ll share more specifics on GT7’s release date when available.”
Sony announced Gran Turismo 7 at last year’s big PS5 reveal showcase in June, and while the publisher has remained relatively quiet about what’s to come with the next installment, word of a potential early 2021 release window began to pop up late last year. Sadly, that’s no longer a possibility.
The last entry in the series, Gran Turismo Sport, debuted in 2017 and has been supported by Polyphony Digital since.
