Gran Turismo 7 Apparently Won't be Cross-Gen, Will Only Launch On PS5

Based on the latest video highlighting upcoming PS5 games, it looks like Gran Turismo 7 will only be on PS5, meaning it won't be cross-gen.

December 7, 2020

Between Horizon Forbidden West, the God of War sequel, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, PlayStation is set up to have an incredible 2021 with amazing exclusives. One of those is Gran Turismo 7, the latest game in the famous racing series from Polyphony Digital. In a new video highlighting upcoming PS5 games, GT7 will apparently be a PS5 exclusive, meaning it won’t be cross-gen.

When Gran Turismo 7 showed up during the video, all it mentioned is it’s a PS5 exclusive and it’d launch in 2021. Other games shown off such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales had a disclaimer at the bottom saying it’s also available on PS4. With GT7 not having this disclaimer, it leads to thinking the game won’t be cross-gen. Other upcoming first-party games like Horizon Forbidden West have been confirmed to launch on PS4 and PS5. Also in the trailer we find out that Square-Enix’s Project Athia will be PS5 and PC exclusive for at least two years. Bethesda’s Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo both had disclaimers as well saying both games would be PS5 and PC exclusive for a year after launch.

Gran Turismo 7 was first announced in June and it’s the first GT game since 2017’s Gran Turismo Sport. While we don’t know much about GT7, the game will supposedly release during the first half of 2021. The only trailer we’ve gotten is its announcement trailer which shows off stunning footage. It also debuted GT Town, a feature that looks like a HUB world kind of area. As we get closer to 2021, hopefully we’ll get more details on the game sooner than later. It’s yet another stellar looking PS5 exclusive that’ll make for a packed 2021.

Gran Turismo 7 will be available sometime in 2021, exclusively on PlayStation 5. You can watch its announcement trailer below. Stay tuned to DualShockers for more Gran Turismo and next-gen news.
