Gran Turismo Sport was released back in October 2017 following a number of delays. You can read our review of the game here. In related news, Polyphony boss Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed that work has begun on Gran Turismo PS5, although at this point we don’t know if it’ll be called Gran Turismo 7 or something else.

Yamauchi-san had previously commented that the next Gran Turismo game could run at 8K on the PS5, which definitely makes sense seeing as how Sony’s new console will support that resolution.

The Gran Turismo franchise currently ranks as Sony’s best-selling IP, having moved over 80 million units globally since its inception back in December 1997 on the PSOne. Since then, the franchise has appeared on every major PlayStation platform bar the PS Vita, which didn’t receive its own GT game.

The best-selling instalment in the long-running racing series is PS2’s Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec, which has moved a whopping 14,890,000 units since its launch in 2001.
