For some time, rumors of a new PlayStation State of Play in February have been circulating, bolstered by reports that Gran Turismo 7 and GhostWire: Tokyo will hold media events this month. The latter’s rumored delay caused some concern, but insider Tom Henderson reports that the media event will now take place on February 3rd.
The “short-notice delay,” according to Henderson, was caused by producer Kazunori Yamauchi’s desire to attend the event for questions but being unable to do so “for whatever reason.” It’s also worth noting that the March 4th release date “appears” to be on track. The racing simulation hasn’t yet gone gold, for what it’s worth.
Regardless, Gran Turismo 7 will be released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. It is said to include over 90 tracks (including Daytona International Speedway, which was featured in a recent movie) and over 420 cars. The PS5 download is apparently 89.445 GB in size, though this could increase if a day one patch is included.
This event is now taking place on February 3rd.
Apparently, the reason for the short-notice delay was that Yamauchi wanted to be at the event to answer questions, but couldn't be there for whatever reason.
March 4th release seems to be happening! 🙂 https://t.co/To40aFLrd8
