Gran Turismo 7 now has an official launch date, and it’s coming pretty soon. You’ll be able to play the next game in the series less than six months from now on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, on March 4 2022.
The date was revealed in a brand new trailer for the game as part of the PlayStation Showcase on September 9. It was our first look at the title in just over a year following the initial reveal back in June 2020, and it seems to have come a long way in the intervening time.
We’ll be unpacking the trailer itself in a further article, but suffice to say there’s plenty for Gran Turismo fans to get excited about — with that famous promise of “a combination of the past, present and future” of Gran Turismo looking to be very much the theme.
Importantly, the trailer featured not only the launch date but the re-confirmation that the title will be available on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
That’s been something that’s caused much speculation over the past few months, as the game was initially announced as a PlayStation 5 exclusive. After a period of some rather confused messaging, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s president and CEO Jim Ryan confirmed a PS4 version only this past weekend — and the box art looks surprisingly like the version GTPlanet mocked up for our images!
As things stand we don’t know how the two game versions will differ, but it looks like both are set to arrive the same day: March 4, 2022.
