Gran Turismo 7 (commonly abbreviated as GT7) is an upcoming racing video game being developed by Polyphony Digital and will be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It will be the eighth major release, the fourteenth game overall in the Gran Turismo video game series, and the first game to be released for the PlayStation 5.
A launch window for Gran Turismo 7 hasn’t been discussed by Sony nor Polyphony Digital, and as such, the definite release date is currently unknown. It is, however, expected within 2022.
The game will take advantage of the PlayStation 5's features such as ray-tracing, 3D audio, fast loading times from the console's SSD and haptic feedback. It will also implement features from the past, present and future of the series.
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.
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.
Kazunori Yamauchi has since only stated that, "I cannot talk about much, but since releasing Gran Turismo Sport I have begun working on the next Gran Turismo game."
It was confirmed by PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan that GT7 would be delayed to 2022, citing development issues relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
