2021 has arrived, and it marks three full years since the release of Gran Turismo Sport.

Fans have been waiting for Gran Turismo 7 since it was first announced in June 2020.

So when could we start our next-gen racing journey with the upcoming GT7?

Latest news – Game DELAYED to 2022

Unfortunately, our hopes for a 2021 version of Gran Turismo 7 have been well and truly squashed.

A recent update from Polyphony Digital has confirmed that the game will not be with us until 2022.

This is due to work restriction relating to the pandemic. We find this news hard to take, but can understand the need to delay!

Gran Turismo 7 release date

There has yet to be a confirmed date for Gran Turismo 7’s release.

Fans had hoped that we would all be surprised by a PS5 launch day release, but that didn’t materialise.

The latest ad gives us a first-half 2021 window.

However, we don’t expect it to hit the shelves any time soon. June 2021 is the likeliest release spot if that first-half window holds true.

Previous Gran Turismo releases

Stretching back as far as 1997, we have a plethora of information which we can use to predict a GT7 release date.

The release date for the original Gran Turismo was late December of 1997. Whilst this was only the product for the Japanese release, we have seen international release dates align more and more closely in recent years.

This is seen in the case of GT Sport, with NA, EU, and Japanese releases all happening within 3 days of each other in mid-October.

With regards to Gran Turismo 5, PlayStation 3’s first instalment of the GT franchise, the game came out in late November across all regions, 24 and 25 November 2010.

Hopefully we don’t have to wait until the tail end of 2021 though!

Early access

Most racing games usually have an edition somewhere that offers a few days of early access, and while we expect Gran Turismo 7 to be no different there is no guarantee.

LATEST VIEWS: A recent PS5 ad gave us a glorious glimpse of these classics

It’s notable that Gran Turismo Sport launched with just two editions (Standard and Deluxe) and neither offered any early access.

So don’t get your hopes up if you are keen to get on track before anyone else!

There are plenty of new features we want to see in GT7. What’s on your wishlist?
