A French ad may have spilled the beans.
It seems Sony is planning to make the PS5’s first year as must have as possible. Not only are they releasing several first party titles at the system’s launch, 2021 is planned to have both God of War 2 and Horizon 2, and possibly even Gran Turismo 7 within the first half.
Gran Turismo 7 was one of many first party titles shown off in one of Sony’s PS5 showcase videos. A lot has been used to hype it up already, such as the plan to target 4K and 60 FPS as well as the promise to use all of the PS5’s enhancements and features. It also could be coming sooner than you think. Despite no date or time frame being set with its announcement, a new French ad says that it’ll be setting sights at the first half of 2021, as you can see from the video uploaded by GT ELIEANOR below (thanks to PSU for the find there). It states “Sortie prévue pour la première moitié de 2021″, which roughly translates to “Expected to premier in the first half of 2021.”
While this does seem to be from an official ad, we’ll be filing this under rumor for the time being since no other sources from Sony are saying this. However, considering the last Gran Turismo released way back in 2017 and Sony is clearly aiming to make 2021 a big first year, it’s not that far-fetched.
