Gran Turismo franchise sales hit 76+ million ahead of GT Sport release

Polyphony Digital has announced that Gran Turismo sales have reached 76.79 million units worldwide since the franchise’s inception in 1997.

In addition, the Sony-owned developer confirmed that sales of Gran Turismo 6, which launched on PlayStation 3 back in November 2013, have eclipsed the five million mark globally. 

The highest-selling title in the venerated racing simulation franchise is Gran Turismo A-Spec for the PS3, which has moved a staggering 14.8 million units worldwide since arriving in stores back in 2001.

Gran Turismo PSP also performed strongly for a system that arguably had far less commercial appeal than the PS2 or PS3, shifting 4.65 million copies globally since launching in 2009.

  • Gran Turismo 10,850,000  
  • Gran Turismo 2 9,370,000

Polyphony Digital is currently working on the next instalment in the series, Gran Turismo Sport, which is scheduled to ship exclusively for PlayStation 4 this November. The racing title will also be fully compatible with PlayStation VR, which arrives in stores on October 13, 2016.

GT Sport may not be a numbered entry in the franchise, but Polyphony has declared that its wealth of features meant that the game could have easily have been called GT7. The planned beta was scrapped as the studio said it would have had to delay the game into 2017 if it had gone ahead.
