Gran Turismo 7 is PS5 exclusive, not coming to PS4, confirms Sony ad

In a peculiarly low-key announcement, Sony has confirmed that Gran Turismo 7 is next gen-only and not cross-gen.

Although the PlayStation 5 launch has generally gone well for Sony there have been some PR hiccups, beyond just the fact that the console is almost impossible to get hold of.

Many were dismayed to find out that games that were previously implied to be PlayStation 5 exclusives, and thereby using the full power of the console, were in fact also being released on PlayStation 4.

That includes the likes of Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Horizon Forbidden West, as seen in the new montage trailer below, but not, apparently, Gran Turismo 7.

Although Sony hasn’t said anything else about the game’s status you in can see in the top left hand corner where the exclusivity of the game is clearly stated.

Other games in the trailer include Deathloop, which is a PlayStation 5 console exclusive (i.e. the only other format it’s on for the first year is PC – which is ironic given Microsoft now owns publisher Bethesda).

Fellow Bethesda title Ghostwire: Tokyo (from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami) is given the same status, as is Square Enix’s mysterious Project Athia.

The likes of Demon’s Souls, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Destruction AllStars, were already known to be PlayStation 5 exclusives and that’s also reconfirmed by the trailer.

Of course, many PlayStation 4 owners will be upset that these and other games aren’t going to appear on their console but prior to the launch of the PlayStation 5 Sony was adamant that creating next gen exclusives was the whole point of creating a new console in the first place – in stark contrast to Microsoft’s policies for the Xbox.

That’s why Horizon Forbidden West, in particular, being cross-gen was such a surprise, given that it’s not expected to be out until relatively late next year and was previously assumed to be one of the games to push the PlayStation 5 the hardest.

Although Sony has promised to support the PlayStation 4 for several years the number of cross-gen games is expected to slowly dwindle over time, with the biggest question mark at the moment being over the status of the next God Of War game.

At the moment Sony has said nothing other than that the game exists, but it may get a proper reveal at The Game Awards later this week.
