Sony told GQ: “GT7 has been impacted by Covid-related production challenges and therefore will shift from 2021 to 2022.

“With the ongoing pandemic, it’s a dynamic and changing situation and some critical aspects of game production have been slowed over the past several months.

“We’ll share more specifics on GT7’s release date when available.”
