In an interview with Jim Ryan in GQ which has served to publicize some of the main what’s new in the PlayStation ecosystem like the announcement of new VR device for PS5 or the landing of Ratchet & Clank on the Play at Home promotion, there has also been room to talk about Gran Turismo 7.
Following the rumors about his possible delay after having several changes in the way he Sony included the driving game in its promotional videos -first dated 2021 and then without it-, a company representative came out to clarify what almost all of us already took for granted.
“The development of Gran Turismo 7 has been affected by the production challenges generated by COVID and therefore will change from 2021 to 2022.
With the pandemic, we are facing a dynamic and changing situation and some key aspects of the game’s production have been slowed down in recent months.
We will provide more information on the launch of Gran Turismo 7 when it becomes available. “
There will be room for the breakneck speed of Yamauchi and their cars competing against small cars, but it will not be this year. A twist that doesn’t seem far-fetched either considering that PS5 already has two heavyweights of the size of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, what will arrive in june, Y Horizon Forbidden West, which is marked for the second half of the year, on your calendar.
It remains to be seen what happens to all those games that aim to follow in the footsteps of Gran Turismo 7 What God of war ragnarok. Game about which there is no clear reference in the interview and which also aimed to be released this year.
