It looks like Gran Tur­is­mo 7 is not just a PlaySta­tion 5 exclu­sive, but will also be com­ing out for the PS4. The news was sub­tly shared dur­ing a Q&A inter­view with Her­man Hulst, the boss of PlaySta­tion Stu­dios. He indi­cat­ed that Gran Tur­is­mo 7 is a cross-gen title. When ques­tioned about where the PS4 fits into Sony’s future plans, Hulst said that it “make sense” to devel­op cer­tain games for both PS4 and PS5.

Where it makes sense to devel­op a title for both PS4 and PS5–for Hori­zon For­bid­den West, the next God of War, GT7–we’ll con­tin­ue look­ing at that,” he said. “And if PS4 own­ers want to play that game, then they can. If they want to go on and play the PS5 ver­sion, that game will be there for them.”

This is the first indi­ca­tion that Gran Tur­is­mo 7 will come to the last-gen con­sole, as well as PS5. Typ­i­cal­ly, Gran Tur­is­mo titles have served as show­pieces for next-gen con­soles and has only been released for one PlaySta­tion con­sole at a time. So this announce­ment is a big deal for the series. Gran Tur­is­mo 7 does­n’t yet have a release date, but it’s report­ed that it will like­ly launch in 2022.

Pre­vi­ous­ly, Sony rep­re­sen­ta­tives stat­ed that the com­pa­ny did not intend to sup­port exclu­sives across two gen­er­a­tions of con­soles. Back in May 2020, PlaySta­tion CEO Jim Ryan said the com­pa­ny was focused on “[giv­ing] the PlaySta­tion com­mu­ni­ty some­thing new, some­thing dif­fer­ent, that can real­ly only be enjoyed on PS5.”

How­ev­er, since Hori­zon For­bid­den West, God of War: Rag­narok, and now Gran Tur­is­mo 7 are all cross-gen exclu­sives, it appears that Sony has soft­ened up on this plan. With­in the same inter­view, Hulst said that God of War: Rag­narok was delayed until 2022, and that Forbid­den West might not make its 2021 hol­i­day launch either.
