It's been a while since we last heard of Gran Turismo Sport, and fans of the legendary racing series are becoming weary waiting for news on the upcoming racing game. Well, it looks like their long wait has come to an end.
Polyphony Digital will debut new footage from Gran Turismo Sport next week, according to the PlayStation Blog. A livestream event will kick off with the premiere of a new trailer at 10:45 a.m. PT on May 19.
Fans can watch live on Gran Turismo or PlayStation's YouTube channels, and are encouraged to stick around after the trailer for more Gran Turismo events. Starting at 11 a.m., the developer will host a pair of Gran Turismo Championship pre-season races. These races are part of the Nations Cup and Manufacturer Cup, which will run over the course of the year. They are held in partnership with the International Automobile Federation, FiA.
The stream will be hosted by a mix of GT and motoring experts. The hosts will be providing with English commentary on the following activities:

Also promised during the stream is more information about the upcoming racing game. Polyphony Digital has first revealed Gran Turismo Sport during Paris Games Week back in October 2015. Amazon has also revealed that the retail release of Gran Turismo Sport will include PS VR compatibility. A beta for Gran Turismo Sport is also planned for sometime this year.
It is a high probability that Sony will finally reveal the release date of GT Sport next week. If they do reveal the release date, hopefully it will be released this year during the holiday season. The PS4 could certainly use a great exclusive game like GT Sport on the holiday season. GT Sport can also help boost the sales of PS VR, which is also coming during the holiday season, since GT Sport is compatible with PS VR. What do you think guys? Will you be watching the full reveal of GT Sport next week?
