A year from the launch of PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, the technical aspects of both consoles are known. They will offer very similar performances that will surpass those of current consoles. Their launch lineup still remains unknown. Recent rumors show that Gran Turismo 7 could be one of the games available from November 20, 2020, the launch date of the console.

On Twitter, a user revealed that they will release Gran Turismo 7 the same day as the PlayStation 5 console, and that it will definitely be part of the launch line-up. Everything suggests that he is right. Kazunori Yamauchi, the creator of the franchise, attended an interview this summer that gives us some leads.

He first announced that the title was being prepared by Polyphony Digital. Then he had raised the possibility that the game would support Sony’s next virtual reality headset. The PlayStation VR 2.0 is planned for PS5. Finally, the studio has published several job offers, including with skills in ray tracing, a technology that will be launched on the PS5.

I remind you that Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo Sport released on October 17, 2017 for PlayStation 4.
