Kazunori Yamauchi, president of Polyphony Digital, has announced that Gran Turismo Sport has reached 9.5 million players. Yamauchi-san revealed that sales of GT Sport weren’t “explosive” in the beginning but saw gradual increases as more content was added to the game. An update sales figure has not been revealed but the game surpassed 8 million copies sold in June 2019. The next instalment in the Gran Turismo series, Gran Turismo 7, will bring the franchise back to its roots whilst also retaining the FIA and online modes of GT Sport. Gran Turismo 7 is due out in 2021 for the PlayStation 5.
