The Gran Turismo 7 release date has been reportedly revealed via a PS5 advertisement on YouTube. If you're hoping to play this next-gen racing game this year, however, you're going to be sorely disappointed.

Gran Turismo 7 was one of the many games announced as the PS5 reveal event back in June 2020. The previous core Gran Turismo game was Gran Turismo 6 for the PS4 which launched all the way back in 2013.

Racing fans enjoyed Gran Turismo 6 for some time, but nothing can last forever — the Gran Turismo 6 servers shut down in March 2018. This effectively left players without a good option for playing the game online.

Now, players have their first hint for when the Gran Turismo 7 release date will be, although it's not all good news — this upcoming racing game is definitely not making the PS5 launch later in November 2020.

When is the Gran Turismo 7 Release Date?

No specific Gran Turismo 7 release date has been announced just yet, although a YouTube ad highlighted on gtplanet notes that the developers are targeting a first half of 2021 release. The ad says "sortie prevue pour la premiere moitie de 2021" which translates to "release planned for the first half of 2021."

"First half of 2021," however, could be as late as June 2020 — hopefully, players will be able to get their hands on Gran Turismo 7 before the summer of 2021 heats up.
