It appears that Gran Turismo 7 is finally on track to release  soon.

The latest Gran Turismo game's release date was announced by Sony last Thursday.

As part of its latest PlayStation Showcase, Sony revealed that Gran Turismo 7 will release on March 4, 2022.

The announcement came with a brand-new trailer for Gran Turismo 7. 

The latest Gran Turismo 7 footage paid homage to the classic PS1 game, Gran Turismo. 

The first Gran Turismo game currently holds the record as the best-selling PlayStation game of all time. 

Mind you, the latest trailer wasn't all about looking back to the past.

Sony and Polyphony Digital also took their time to show off the dozens of sleek cars that players will have a chance to drive in the game once it's available.

The game appears to have an open world for driving filled with points of interest and map icons, among others.

Sony originally announced Gran Turismo 7 as a PS5-exclusive for 2021.

The game was later delayed to an undetermined date due to COVID-19 related problems.

It was also later confirmed that Gran Turismo 7 will be releasing on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Truth be told, the Gran Turismo franchise has seen better days.

Many fans felt that 2017's Gran Turismo Sport was a stark departure from the series' usual formula. 

With Gran Turismo 7, Polyphony Digital will look to prove that the decades-old franchise still has what it takes to keep up with the likes of Forza Horizon 5.
