The Gran Turismo series has been close to our hearts for over twenty years now. In that time the much-loved racing series from Japan has racked up a gigantic 80.4 million in sold copies according to a recent entry on the official Gran Turismo website.

The 80 million milestone was passed as of April this year, and when you subtract previous Gran Turismo title sales you can conclude that Gran Turismo Sport has amassed around 3 million in sales, not too shabby I think you'll agree.

"It’s hard to imagine the fact that 80 million players have played Gran Turismo during its 20 year history, and the immense amount of time that has been poured into playing the game, said Producer Kazunori Yamauchi. "I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the many users as well as our friends and supporters in the automotive industry. We would like to continue our efforts in achieving the best possible expression of the beauty of cars, scenery, the fun of driving and the excitement of racing in the years to come."

Gran Turismo Sport won no less than three awards in the Team VVV Racing Game Awards 2018, bagging best Handling, Online, and Graphics. Needless to say, we're all looking very much forward to Gran Turismo 7 in the future, let's hope it's sooner rather than later.
