I still think spring/summer '21.Given that Sony sees Gran Turismo as a tool for shifting consoles and that their upcoming new console may well be sold out this side of 2021 already, it wouldn't make an awful lot of sense to rush the game out at launch. Holiday season 2021 would be more realistic in many regards.
I still think spring/summer '21.
GT6 was announced (1st trailer) in May. Got released in December. Several trailers. An early build at GT Academy 4 months before release. Release date announced 98 days before release.i had a quick look when this was first announced to see if there was any documented time scale for previous GT tiles - First Official Announcement - Announced Release Date - Actual Release Date - but couldn't find (or couldn't be arsed to find) that data.
June 2021 is the best release dateGT6 was announced (1st trailer) in May. Got released in December. Several trailers. An early build at GT Academy 4 months before release. Release date announced 98 days before release.
GT:Sport was announced (1st trailer) in 2016. Released in October 2017. Several trailers. Closed and open Beta. Release date announced 68 days before release.
GT7 was announced (1st trailer) in June.
That was more than 3 months ago. I am sure 200 employees working on a game can fix some typos and sound effects relatively quicklyWhy people keep thinking it will be a launch game?
There's were alot of Typos, No menu sound effects and the race UI was entirely from GT Sport.
Hopefully not, and I also hope Brand Central, its museum feature, My Library mode and the ability to use content downloaded from Discover mode don't require a mandatory online connection.So only online save game again?
The features that will definitely require a mandatory online connection would be the following:
- Access to Discover mode, as well as the ability to download and publish content such as replays, photos, liveries and decals from there
- Buying cars directly from the PS Store instead of in-game credits
- Daily Login Bonus (if it returns)
- Daily Workout progress
- Mileage Exchange
- Online multiplayer (requires PS Plus)
- Social features and interaction
- Sport mode (GT Sport Live - also requires PS Plus)
- Viewing a manufacturer's channel and/or official website in Brand Central
Piggybacking off of this. Both Instagram and Facebook are LITTERED with the same advertisement from PlayStation talking about the adaptive triggers with Gran Turismo 7. This has been a constant since like a week after the official trailer was initially released to the public.
