Gran Turismo 7 was announced in June 2020 and initially planned for a release somewhere in 2021. That release window was delayed to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic which wreaked havoc on the games industry worldwide. The game is currently penned to see the light of day on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on March 4, 2022 unless there is another unforeseen delay.
Gran Turismo 7 was confirmed yesterday to require a minimum of 110GB of storage space on PlayStation 5 which includes a day-one mandatory patch. The installation size on PlayStation 4 remains to be confirmed.
Gran Turismo 7 aims to be the most realistic reflection of real-life racing ever created. The installment will grace the current-generation PlayStation flagship by featuring real-time weather conditions that impact the racing track itself. Natural elements such as air temperature, humidity, the road surface temperature will all be affected by the weather, tasking drivers to really take multiple factors into account when they are burning rubber on the tracks.
