It came as it had to come in these times: In an interview, Sony's head honcho Jim Ryan reveals what many simracing fans with a PS5 on their shelf had already feared: The eagerly awaited racing game "Gran Turismo 7" will no longer roll out of the pit lane in 2021.
GT7 not until 2022
Sony hadn't mentioned an exact date for "Gran Turisimo 7" in the run-up, but only specified a time frame in the fourth quarter of 2021. Now we know why the Japanese hardware and software giant was so cautious. The "new" processes, which of course also massively complicate the development of complex video games at the moment, have led to the fact that "Gran Turismo 7" cannot be finished on time.
Of course, the developers - according to their Japanese nature - apologize kindly and sincerely to the fans and ask for understanding for the unexpected postponement of "Gran Turismo 7". Of course, they get that from us, even if the selection of really good, new sim racing games for the Playstation 5 is then a bit thin this year. At least the fact that Kunos Simulazioni is working on a next-gen-console version of "Assetto Corsa Competizione" certainly makes our tears dry a bit faster.
