Gran Turismo 7 – the eighth installation of the iconic racing series – has been announced, with speculation the title could be available from November this year.
Teased alongside the unveiling of the new Sony PlayStation 5 this week, the video (which can be viewed below) promises a return to form for the franchise.
A city-styled map with various outlets – including used-car dealerships – returns.
There is also vehicle modification and the fictional Trial Mountain circuit – a fan favourite that was omitted from the series’ seventh title, Gran Turismo Sport.
Further to Trial Mountain, real life United States race tracks Willow Springs and Daytona International Speedway can also be seen in the video.
While no official launch date has been announced, whispers online suggest Gran Turismo 7 may hit shelves at the same time as the PlayStation 5’s rumoured November 20, 2020 release.
This would be good news for fans, Polyphony Digital and Sony alike – seeing as the Gran Turismo series is the biggest-selling franchise on the platform – however does not seem likely.
Historically, Gran Turismo titles are released after the PlayStation platform they are made for – with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue dropping more than a year after the PlayStation 3 it ran on, and Gran Turismo Sport launching almost four years after the PlayStation 4.
