While there is a shortage of PS5 consoles, there is (for Sony) no need to release such a big and anticipated game. That would be too SOON (pun intended) and would damage the sales of GT7.
My guess is also Christmas 2021, but with the possibility being postponed to Q1/Q2 2022.
I would think a Q3/Q4 2021 release would be highly likely. I mean if you're gonna delay it, you may as well get those holiday sales. And while I believe other PS5 games will be coming out at that point, I highly doubt their respective fanbases will have enough overlap with GT insofar that sales would be cannibalized. But that said, I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that I hope we get more info soon.
As you said smooth, I would personally prefer to have GT7 in 2021, no later and to enjoy it online and offline with all you folks at GTPlanet stress free of COVID, because we all need a break from the stench of 2020.
See you all on Trial Mountain in 2021!
Why then? Why not release it during Q3/Q4 and get those holiday sales? I feel like GT in general doesn't have enough overlap with other titles to warrant worries that it'll cannibalize sales of other games if GT7 comes out for the holidays.After that, maybe early summer, GT7 will follow.
Not quite sure I get you old fruity.
But believe this, we lost 2 years of development on GT7 thanks to crapstorm that was 2020-21 so far. It has almost tanked the title to a near crawl.
We are in June '21 now, its getting brighter, but still no new word, so we heading to 2022 for a likely release if any.
SONY are just batting eyelids at us now.
