Leaked Gran Turismo 7 ad reveals release date

Leaked Gran Turismo 7 ad reveals release date

Earlier this year, when Sony first teased the Playstation 5, it showed off a slew of new and next generation games. One of the games teased alongside the PS5 was Gran Turismo 7. Back then, there was no information on the release date of the game, but now, we might just know when it is coming out.

An ad for the upcoming game Gran Turismo 7 has perhaps revealed more than it intended to. In the ad, it says "Sortie prévue pour la première moitié de 2021." Here's what that means.

Gran Turismo 7 is coming to the PS5 in the first half of 2021

As noted by YouTuber GT ELIEANOR, the advertisement in question reads in French, "Sortie prévue pour la première moitié de 2021." This translates to "release scheduled for the first half of 2021." Ultimately, this means that we will see GT7 on the PS5 consoles in the coming few months.

Till now, the internet was speculating a release window of some time this year, but that seems to have been ruled out. However, early 2021 is still a good place to launch the game for the upcoming console generation. By then, people will be familiar with the next generation features of the console.

GT7 will make full use of the PS5's console hardware features and the controller features as well, which include haptic feedback and the highly touted adaptive triggers.

If it is indeed released in 2021, that will mean a four year gap between Gran Turismo 7 and its predecessor, GT Sport, which debuted on PS4 in October 2017.
