The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will also be popular choices for virtual racing in part because each has a long-running flagship racing simulator series. On PlayStation, you have the Gran Turismo series, which has been around since the late 1990s. The latest installment, ‘Gran Turismo 7’ has been previewed for PlayStation 5 and will return to its roots with a deep career campaign. Over on Xbox Series X, you have Forza Motorsport. Details are more limited on the newest version of the game, since it’s still in early development, but it appears to continue to be a showcase of the console’s graphics and should have a long list of cars and ways to play. Release dates haven’t been revealed for either title. It’s worth noting the next ‘Forza Motorsport,’ like many Xbox releases from Microsoft studios, will be available on PC, too. In a similar manner, many titles, including racing games, will be available across all three platforms, including the game we discuss in the next section.
