Our Take

We’ve been rather critical of GT Sport. As some of our lead editors are huge racing fans and grew up with the popular racing franchises, we feel that Gran Turismo has lost its way over the past decade plus. With titles like Project Cars 2 offering full racing classes over 60 tracks and Forza 7 offering the pinnacle of performance on the X1X/PC and over 700 fully detailed cars, it’s hard to make the case for GT Sport with such a shallow offering. There’s a lot more to compare between the premier racing franchises so rather than do that here, we’ll likely do a comparison video on them later this year.  Regardless, it’s nice to see GT back and with a confirmed release date!
