It's crazy how far the GT franchise has fallen. If it didn't have the sales PD would be long dead by now

As would anything lol.

The crux of the matter is, regardless of how well their games review, they have an incredible following due to the genuine racing experience they offer.

They have a following because of their name. There are better racing experiences out there that don't get as many sales.

Critically, but it's still the most popular exclusive racing franchise. Personally I don't find virtual racing fun, but something about this franchise keeps bringing people back I guess.

GT6 sold less than half of GT5. The series has been losing sales and critical reception for quite some time which is why PD went a different direction with GT Sport. With the emphasis of online, lack of content and removal of Mods, I don't see GTS selling close to what GT6 did. Sales will probably be closer to the Prologues.

“GT6 sold less than half of GT5. The series has been losing sales and critical reception for quite some time which is why PD went a different direction with GT Sport.“

GT6 sales were taken away because it released at the same time as the PS4, when people were more focused on next gen and yet GT6 sold 5-6 million copies, which is better than any other racer. Also, the game right before it GT5 sold 10-11 million copies, so if you think GT has been “losing sales for quite some time” then you’re delusional.

Wake me up when there's other games besides Forza, Halo and Gears.

GT Sport looks good but lacks content but the racing genre is in trouble on the PS4. They closed down Evolution and now use GT as a way to push Plus memberships. As for only those three main franchises on the Xbox I enjoyed Halo Wars 2, I also enjoy the defintive Recore game, Killer Instinct is great if you like fighting games. Sea of Thieves looks like a ton of fun. Cuphead is doing extremely well. State of Decay 2 looks very interesting.

I think you mean exclusives, which there others.

But right now, it's all about X1X. We'll deal with exclusives at another period. Just playing over 90% of the games on the market on the best console in the market, by a huge margin, is enough right now to bring Xbox some welcomed new customers

Like I said, wake me up when there's actual exclusives.

Its a real bummer they focused on multiplayer so much. Gran turismo was always a great series I'm real tempted to still pick it up because it looks spectacular but I like many others am not into online racing never was. I still have my copy of the ps1 original gran turismo which I bought with my ps1 which was really my first taste of sim racing and got me into the series so to see it end up like this hurts. Hopefully the dev team are listening to all the feedback and will do some type of content patch down the line.
