Expected on March 4 on PS4 and PS5, the next opus of Gran Turismo seems to be following the path traced by its predecessors: on the program, a game that still seems heavy and which should occupy a good part of the hard drives of players’ consoles.

Gran Turismo 7: the scary weight?

While Xbox has taken a little more advance with Forza Horizon 5 (which is a hit!), Sony is still expected at the turn regarding its next car game. It is Grand Touring 7, expected on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, which is expected on the starting line on March 04. And it seems that we know what it hides under the hood: as usual, it’s the PlayStation Game Size Twitter page that reveals various information about the weight and available preload of the game:

Without an update at launch, Gran Turismo 7 would therefore weigh 89,445 GB. A significant weight on the SSD, whose properties allow, among other things, to reduce loading times. For smaller connections, rest assured: it will be a priori possible to start downloading the game a week before. Otherwise, there is always the physical version for the most impatient. If it is difficult to compare two different titles like Forza Horizon 5 and Gran Turismo 7, we note that their weights (if this is confirmed for GT) are not similar: on Xbox Series, the baby of PlayGround Games exceeds the 100 Gb of volume required.

A classic weight for a PlayStation exclusive

Let’s stay in the field of comparisons but on the PlayStation side only. If it also remains to be confirmed, it is the weight ofHorizon Forbidden West which is similar to that of Gran Turismo 7: always spotted by PlayStation Game Size (which can be wrong, but whose ranges are often good), the weight of the sequel toHorizon : Zero Dawn would be 96 GB when it was released! As a reminder, the PS5 SSD is 825 GB: with the release of Horizon Forbidden West andElden Ring as well as that of Gran Turismo 7, you can come close to indigestion for the hard drive.

Still, Gran Turismo 7 does well when compared to its predecessor. Gran Turismo Sports, the only installment in the car saga to be released on PS4, occupies 110 GB of our consoles. Despite everything, we will have to wait for an official communication or even the release of the game to be sure of the volume of Gran Turismo: go to the starting line on March 04 on PS4 and PS5.
