Gran Turismo 7 will release on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on 4 March 2022.
Announced on the PlayStation Blog, the developers share that the goal is to, “convey everything from the last 150 years of car and racing culture, whether you are a lifelong fan or discovering cars for the first time.” The devs also say legendary tracks from the series, including Trial Mountain and High-Speed Ring, will return in higher detail to match the PS5’s power.
For the unversed, Gran Turismo 7 is an upcoming racing video game developed by Polyphony Digital and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The game will be the eighth mainline installment in the Gran Turismo series
The cultural environment surrounding cars has changed greatly in the past 25 years. Those of us who were born in the rich car culture of the times created the first Gran Turismo game, so it may be difficult for the current generation of automotive purists to be in the same type of cultural environment as ourselves back then.
There was also a new trailer at today’s PlayStation Showcase event, boasting dozens of cool cars that will be shown in the game.
The game was previously postponed to 2022 owing to pandemic. It was initially announced with a trailer. A beta is set to arrive in the lead-up to launch.
