Be it the graphics, the size, the details, or the realism, every aspect is evolving in the world of games as we speak. The Gran Turismo series is also one of the most famous racing simulation game series for the PlayStation. Gran Turismo 7, the eighth installment of the series was launched in March 2022 for all the Gran Turismo fans. But for many gamers a new curiosity is rooting its seeds, questioning the release date of Gran Turismo 8 for PS5 & PS4.
Gran Turismo 8 Release Date for PS5 & PS4
The Gran Turismo series has been in the market since the 90s. Surviving more than two decades in the gaming industry, the journey of this racing simulation video game is nothing but phenomenal. Holding titles like the best-selling PlayStation game is not an easy feat to achieve but this series has seen it all. The last installment of the series was developed by Polyphony Digital and published by the PlayStation studios. Although the last installment of Gran Turismo has been doing fairly well, there is no official announcement regarding the upcoming installment of the series.
This may sound a little bit disappointing to the readers, but there is no solid information about the release of Grand Turismo 8. This means the best we can do right now is observe the patterns of the former releases of the game and predict a date based on those patterns. This forecasting may not be accurate or official, but it will surely give us a good idea about when the ninth installment can be seen.
If we look at the initial installments of the series till the fourth part, there is a certain consistency in the gap of years between them. The recent releases were fast and the Polyphony Digital’s developers evolved during this phase. However, Gran Turismo 5 took its time and came almost 6 years later to the market after its last installment. Three years later, Gran Turismo 6 entered the market for PlayStation 3. The latest release of the Gran Turismo series also took four years to release after Gran Turismo Sport, the seventh installment of the game.
As there is no official information, we can assume that the Gran Turismo 8 may also take 4 to 5 years of time-span easily for its release, which roughly adds up to 2026-2027. Since the developers will now focus mostly on the next-gen console which is PS5, it will be interesting to see if the upcoming installment extends its support to PS4 after its release. As for now, these are just speculations and we recommend you follow the official sources to get any solid information regarding an official release date. On this note, we hope this article made your gaming experience a little bit easier. For more speculations, fixes, and updates in the world of tech and gaming, do not forget to visit Androidgram.
