Gran Turismo 7 delayed until 2022
More Covid-related delays
Sony has today announced that the upcoming PS5 racer Gran Turismo 7 has been pushed back from it’s original 2021 release date into 2022.
The pandemic is said to be the main cause of the delay, forcing employees to work from home and slowing development of the game. The official statement from Sony said "With the ongoing pandemic, it's a dynamic and changing situation and some critical aspects of game production have been slowed over the past several months. We'll share more specifics on GT7's release date when available."
For now we can only hope for a release early in 2022, but the safety of the development team is obviously their top priority along with aiming to release a fully finished, bug free game.
