There's still little known about the next entry in the Gran Turismo series. That will soon change as Sony has announced plans to host an event dedicated to Gran Turismo Sport ahead of E3.

Series creator Kazunori Yamauchi revealed on the PlayStation Blog today that Sony will stream an event from London on May 19 where it will be "sharing new details" about Sport. Part of the event will feature a new trailer for the game being shown off.

You'll be able to watch the event through the official Gran Turismo or PlayStation YouTube channels on May 19 at 10:45 AM PT. All of the news is expected to be limited to a 15-minute segment, which will then be followed by the pre-season test of the FIA Gran Turismo Championships Cups.

Gran Turismo Sport was first announced last October. At the time, there were plans for a beta version to be available in early 2016. There's no mention of that in today's announcement, nor is there any reference to the PlayStation VR support that was mentioned last year.

Sport is not to be confused with Gran Turismo 7, which is a separate game. Sony's Jim Ryan told Eurogamer last year that that GT7 wasn't being announced yet--this despite Yamauchi suggesting in 2013 that GT7 would be out in 2014 or 2015.
