Thanks to its delay, Gran Turismo 7 isn’t coming out until some time in 2022, much later than what we had previously anticipated, but it’s possible that players will still get the chance to play the racing sim before it releases in full. As spotted by GT Planet, the Experience PlayStation page may have spilled the beans on an upcoming beta for the game.
A couple of steps on the page require you to select “Start Quest”, head to the “Related Campaigns” section, and then select “Italia Quest”. Interestingly enough, “Gran Turismo Beta (Test)” is listed under the section, and after watching ten seconds of the game’s announcement trailer, a beta code is generated for you to redeem. The code that is generated (1234-5678-9012) is just a placeholder though and doesn’t actually work when you try to redeem it, which means that perhaps Sony is testing the platform for an upcoming beta, and maybe this went live before it was supposed to.
Until such time Sony actually confirms something, it’s best to take this with a grain of salt. A beta test for the game wouldn’t exactly be surprising though, especially given the fact that Gran Turismo Sport received a beta prior to its launch as well.
Gran Turismo 7 is currently slated for a 2022 launch, and will release for both PS5 and PS4.
