Covid is making a bother again.

SIE President Jim Ryan has been a busy boy of late. Not only has he announced that PlayStation users will soon be able to get their hands on Ratchet and Clank for free during the month of March, he’s also had some words to say on many of Sony’s upcoming projects.

Most notably, he has commented on the upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive, Gran Turismo 7. Gran Turismo has been a long-running franchise for Sony, and while many other driving sim franchises have come and gone, the GT series has been entertaining gamers since its original game way back in 1997.

Sadly, it isn’t good news for GT7, with Jim Ryan today announcing that the game has slipped from its 2021 release date into 2022. Covid-19 was blamed for a slowdown in production, which seems to be affecting many companies, with the Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 publisher also partially blaming Covid for the indefinite delay of their upcoming vampire RPG.


Any Other GT News?

Those hoping for more juicy details on the latest in the Gran Turismo series will be disappointed as no further details on the driving sim were announced today, and no exact date for the release either. Jim Ryan stated: “we’ll share more specifics on GT7’s release date when available”.

In other PlayStation news, Sony announced that PlayStation VR 2 will be coming to the PS5. Details on this new headset are scarce at the moment, but in an interview with GQ, Jim Ryan stated “this will be a completely new VR format for PS5.” What that actually means, we’ll have to wait and see. He also did state that this new headset doesn’t even have an official name yet, so we can assume it won’t be PSVR 2.
