There were a number of fans who were late with last year's release of Gran Turismo Sport … and that includes us. The game just didn 't live up to the standard that Polyphony Digital has previously set with its racing series, with far too many features blocked behind and online connection. But it sounds like the developer is trying to make amends with its next entry, Gran Turismo 7.
But you need to be patented, as you probably should expect Gran Turismo 7 to make its debut anytime soon. In fact, with the implementation of its new engine, there is a pretty good chance we will even see it during this generation. Polyphony is likely to save it for the PlayStation 5, with a possible first peek coming sometime later next year, when Sony could host a showcase for the forthcoming console.
Polyphony does need to make a turnaround from the failures of Sport and this looks to be a step in the right direction. The car models in the video are remarkable thus far, though this is merely a glimpse of what the real-time ray tracing engine will have. Hopefully sometime over the next year, there will be some gameplay that will really pop off the screen.
For now, Gran Turismo 5 will likely release sometime in 2020 for PlayStation 5, though you never know …
