Gran Turismo 7, one of the PlayStation 5 special games, also joined the caravan of games affected by the Covid-19 outbreak.
Although Sony has given good news such as the new generation PlayStation VR and Days Gone PC version, a statement came from the Gran Turismo front that will upset the players. Accordingly, Gran Turismo 7 has been postponed to 2022 due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
In a statement from Sony to the GQ, it is underlined that 2021 exit is not possible. While it is stated that the game is affected by the production difficulties related to Covid, it is shared that this is a dynamic and changing situation with the ongoing pandemic. It is noted that some critical aspects of the game’s production have slowed in the past few months, and more details will be shared about the release date when available.
We can safely say that the announcement will be a blow for fans of the Gran Turismo series. When Sony announced the game in June 2020, it even showed in-game footage shot with the PlayStation 5 game console to highlight how good the graphics will look on the new hardware.
Gran Turismo 7 also features a brand new campaign mode that allows players to customize cars in their own garages and unlock new vehicles such as the Mazda RX-VISION GT3 concept by winning various races. Additionally, little is known about the game Polyphony Digital, except that it is exclusive to PlayStation 5 and supports 4K60FPS with ray tracing. Of course, the game is expected to use the features offered by the DualSense controller to the fullest.
