Also can't wait to see any new content trailers released for GT7, especially if the GTS datamine is anything to go by...
Come on Road Atlanta!
Okay but that's not the Point. The servers are needed for everything in the game. You can't even buy a car in the game if you don't have an internet connection (or if the servers are shut down)According to this site GT Sport sold 8 million copies on june 2019. According to playercounter GT Sport has 186709 online players.
So with there being the recent clip featuring the Aston Martin saying at the bottom "Coming 2021" and the recently edited video this thread mentions saying "in development" it might be safe to say that not even PD has confidence in when GT7 will be released.
Hopefully what is coming in 2021 isn't just a release date saying something along the lines of November 24th, 2022 and then that ends up being pushed back to 2023.
No PS6 until late 2026 or 2027 so no chance that will be on PS6, it's a ps5 game but it come the earliest late 2021 or even 2022
We’ve been waiting almost 4 years for the full implementation of the new rFactor 2 UI, really don’t mind if PD takes another year or two to polish.
You guys asking for 300-400 cars at launch is a tall order and unlikely.
C++, back end programming and car modeling is complex and time consuming. Ask me how I know.
GT Sport has 325 or so already, and we have seen some of those cars in the trailers for GT7 thus far. Possible that all GT Sport cars won't make it to GT7 for one reason or another, but I think 300-350 is possible, I don't see there being 400. I agree with your sentiment about the amount of effort it takes to add new cars, which is why I think the "It'd had better have 700 cars at launch" comments are daft.
GT Sport has 336 vehicles, take that 300-320 will be imported from gt sport plus 50 models taken from gt6 and imported to ps5 format and other 150 new cars from scratch made with outsourcing help and also 4-5 years of development then I think that 500-550 is a possible number of cars for GT7 as launch date, at best 600 at launch. Then with updates they can reach 750-800 range
I really don't pay any mind to any of the car estimation posts because they are wildly inaccurate and highly improbable but you'd is at least well thought out. 500 is totally realistic.
I haven't touched GTSport and my PS4 Pro in quite some time. Would be amazing to get GT7 Prologue on PS4 Pro. With regards to the delays of GT7 for PS5, I am not at all surprised but then again I am in the minority because I cannot afford a PS5. Hopefully PS5 buyers remain entertained with other games and GTSport until GT7 is released.
