Gran Turismo 7 Leaks For a 2020 Release, Gets Denied, Leaked Again

Would it actually be all that stunning to be taught that Sony is planning Gran Turismo 7, the following numbered entry in PlayStation’s long-running racing sim franchise? After all, we all know that the “next Gran Turismo” is coming. Polyphony Digital has already commented on the sport, notably mentioning that they’re attempting to succeed in 240fps with it. Of course, it hadn’t truly been particularly named Gran Turismo 7 simply but, at the least till Next Level Racing outed it (type of).

That story begins with an Instagram put up from Next Level Racing, a racing cockpit producer that makes formally licensed PlayStation merchandise. The Sixth Axis reported that the now-deleted put up (screenshot under) confirmed a Gran Turismo 7 emblem (amongst different confirmed titles), asking what racing sport individuals are trying ahead to in 2020.

People had been fast to name the corporate on the unrevealed sport, after which Next Level Racing deleted the put up and hastily responded with a rather confusing bit of damage control.

Our staff has acknowledged {that a} current put up by us utilizing a emblem has been misinterpreted by media and it doesn’t mirror any data from our finish, and we deny figuring out any data concerning the launch of GT7. There have been assumptions made within the media which can be fairly merely unfaithful. Due to this, we now have determined to take down our earlier social put up. Our Graphic Design Department used the mock emblem that’s circulated on the web.

We do apologize for any confusion that this might need induced.

Yes, Next Level Racing used a supposed mock emblem for a sport that they allegedly know nothing about in a social put up about racing video games coming this yr and one way or the other the blame is on the media for “misinterpret[ing].” Questions start to come up. Why would their graphic design division use a “mock logo that is circulated on the internet” in any respect in the event that they “deny knowing any information regarding the launch of GT7?” Somebody was clearly below the impression that Gran Turismo 7 is launching this yr and this response to the put up feels fairly a bit like a red-faced “Whoops, we really broke embargo on that one.”

And that’s nonetheless not the tip of the saga. Just after that large fiasco, PlayStation Brazil tweeted out a ballot, asking gamers “which of these games do you prefer playing on the living room sofa with someone?” Among the potential replies was, you guessed it, Gran Turismo 7. That put up has since been deleted too, however because of the web, screenshots exist (see under).

It’s completely potential that with all of the altering plans as a result of COVID-19, there might have been some embargo dates that shifted and never everybody received the memo. That or these had been simply sincere slipups (although the Next Level Racing leak appears significantly egregious and suspect). At greatest guess, Gran Turismo 7—the following anticipated entry in a collection that has adopted PlayStation because the starting—will as soon as once more be a benchmark title, launching with the PlayStation 5 in vacation 2020, and it’ll most likely be a part of the PS5 reveal showcase, now reportedly set for someday in early June.
