Reportedly, the beta could be accessed by heading to PlayStation.com. You could then head to “Start Quest,” click “Related Campaigns,” followed by “Italia Quest,” and select “Gran Turismo Quest.” After which a 10-second video appeared. Upon ending, players received a placeholder beta code. The code specified that it was for “PS5 Only,” but did not indicate a launch date. Unfortunately, the quest no longer seems to be active.
As you may remember, Gran Turismo Sport ran a closed beta back in 2017. Although the beta codes (and beta itself) don’t appear to be live as of right now, it looks like Sony is gearing up for a Gran Turismo 7 beta sooner rather than later. GT7 is slated for a 2022 release after “COVID-related production challenges” pushed it off the 2021 calendar. The game will see a release on the PS4 and PS5. Herman Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios, confirmed the ever-popular racing sim would arrive on both Sony consoles.
