Gran Turismo 7 May Launch In First Half Of 2021

The latest installment of Gran Turismo will raise the simulation bar to the next level


  • The new Gran Turismo game was officially revealed back in June.

  • This information means that the game may arrive shortly after the new PS5.


It was back in June, during the lockdown, the PlayStation revealed the latest iteration of their extremely popular driving game Gran Turismo. No specific details were shared at the time as to when enthusiasts could expect to get their hands on the game, but now, we have a clue.

PlayStation also introduced their latest console, the PS5, which will be released in just over a week. In a YouTube advertising for the new PS5, as reported by IGN, a very alert fan noticed a small caption at the bottom left corner of the screen while an image of GT7 was showing.

The short line read: “Sortie prévue pour la première moitié de 2021,” which translates directly to: “Release scheduled for the first half of 2021.” While this is anything but an exact date, those in the know figure that this means GT7 will be introduced by May 19th, or exactly six months after the PS5 hits shelves globally.

The PlayStation 5 will be released on November 12 in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. Other countries will get the new console one week later, on November 19.
