Gran Turismo 7 Could Launch in Q3 or Q4 2021 After All

Gran Turismo 7 is one of the biggest releases of the year in the gaming world. While everybody is waiting for an official launch date, Polyphony Digital seems to be trying to make the whole thing even more confusing than it already is.

While we still don’t know precisely when Gran Turismo 7 is supposed to get the go-ahead, new information comes from Fanatec, a racing wheel manufacturer who expects quite a boost in sales once the new game goes live.

Companies involved in such industries typically have access to first-hand information about new releases, so they can prepare their devices in advance. In some cases, they’re even provided with testing versions, all with the purpose of making sure everything is working correctly when the game goes live.

After all, everybody wins, as companies record bigger sales while gamers are provided with a more refined experience from the very beginning.

Unsurprisingly, Fanatec seems to know when GT7 is supposed to launch, and parent company Endor has recently dropped some info in this regard. As others have noticed, the details have been included in Endor’s latest financial report, where the company explains Fanatec’s sales are expected to increase following the launch of GT7.

The expected launch of the racing video game GT7 (probably in Q3 or Q4), which is being developed by Polyphony Digital and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, should once again boost sales in the simracing sector. The past has shown that the launch of popular racing games provides significant additional momentum in the steering wheel business,” the company said in a press release (emphasis is ours).

In particular, the Gran Turismo series is popular with consumers worldwide and is considered a blockbuster in the scene. Previous versions, such as GT5, have already sold 5.5 million copies worldwide within a month of release. Until the launch of GT7, Endor plans to introduce matching PlayStation 5 licensed products in the lower price range of the Fanatec range to the market.

So there you go; while some believe GT7 would go live much earlier, hardware makers expect the game to see the daylight in the second half of the year. And while the confusion might be frustrating for some, let’s just all be happy GT7 at least launches in 2021.
