In an interview with Jim Ryan in GQ that has served to publicize some of the main novelties of the PlayStation ecosystem, such as the announcement of a new VR device for PS5 or the landing of Ratchet & Clank in the Play at Home promotion, there has also been a gap to talk about Gran Turismo 7.
Following the rumors about its possible delay after having several changes in how Sony included the driving game in its promotional videos – first with a date for 2021 and then without it – a company representative came out to clarify what that almost all of us already took for granted.
“The development of Gran Turismo 7 has been affected by the production challenges generated by COVID and will therefore change from 2021 to 2022.
With the pandemic, we face a dynamic and changing situation, and some critical aspects of the game’s production have been slowed down in recent months.
We will provide more information on the launch of Gran Turismo 7 when it becomes available. ”
There will be room for the breakneck speed of Yamauchi and his cars competing against small vehicles, but it will not be this year. A twist that doesn’t seem far-fetched either, considering that PS5 already has two heavyweights of the likes of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which will arrive in June, and Horizon Forbidden West, which is marked for the second half of the year, in its calendar.
It remains to be seen what happens to all those games that aim to follow in the footsteps of Gran Turismo 7, like God of War Ragnarok. A game about which there is no explicit reference in the interview and aimed to be released this year.
