Gran Turismo 7 (commonly abbreviated as GT7) is an upcoming racing video game being developed by Polyphony Digital and will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It will be the eighth major release and fourteenth game overall in the Gran Turismo video game series. It was originally scheduled to be released sometime in 2016, but due to the development and release of Gran Turismo Sport in mid 2017, the release date is as yet unknown.
A launch window for Gran Turismo 7 hasn’t been discussed by Sony nor Polyphony Digital. It will be exclusive to Sony platforms and will likely be coming to the Playstation 5, depending on how far down the road it makes an appearance, owing that the Playstation 5 console will likely be released around December 2020."TrustedReviews website, containing up-to-date information on the release of Gran Turismo 7".

These interviews took place in late 2013, and no confirmed reports or interviews have taken place since then.
In an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu (and translated by Polygon.com) in September 2013, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi mentioned that GT7 would be coming to the PlayStation 4 console "in a year or two". He also mentioned that it will be based on the same physics engine that Gran Turismo 6 uses."Gran Turismo 6 producer talks physics engines, smartphone linkups, and the presumed GT7".

In an interview with GamesTM magazine in October of the same year, Yamauchi semi-confirmed a release for Gran Turismo 7" sometime in 2015 or 2016". He also spoke about how much more powerful the game will be on the PS4 and how much easier it is to develop on the new console versus the previous release, Gran Turismo 6, on the PlayStation 3."PS4 to Make “Incredible Difference” for Gran Turismo 7, says Kazunori Yamauchi".
