Endor AG announces the Gran Turismo™ DD Pro for PlayStation®5
and PlayStation®4 consoles
Landshut, November 24, 2021 – Endor AG with its brand Fanatec introduces the Gran Turismo ™ DD Pro, the first official Direct Drive Wheel for the Gran Turismo™ series. The readyto-race package, officially licensed for PlayStation®5 consoles and PlayStation®4 consoles, includes a high-performance direct-drive wheel base, steering wheel, and pedals. It was developed in parallel with the CSL DD, in close collaboration with Sony Interactive Entertainment and Polyphony Digital.
The collaboration between Fanatec and Polyphony Digital starts with the Gran Turismo™ DD Pro, the first ever Direct Drive system developed for a Gran Turismo™ game. The Gran Turismo ™ DD Pro is compatible with Gran Turismo™ Sport and Gran Turismo™ 7, the latest game in the series, set to release in 2022, and has bespoke inputs, tailored specifically for that game.
Thomas Jackermeier, CEO Endor AG: “The community has asked for an affordable direct drive wheel with load cell pedal and we took a lot of efforts to make the impossible come true. The steering wheel was entirely designed in collaboration with Polyphony Digital and we worked closely together to make everything work perfectly with Gran Turismo™ Sport and the upcoming Gran Turismo™ 7 which is announced for release in 2022. Direct Drive is the new standard in sim racing and every racer who tried it once will never go back to a belt drive wheel.”
