A racing game cockpit manufacturer with ties to PlayStation might have accidentally revealed the logo for a new Gran Turismo game. Furthermore, the social media post showing the logo suggests a 2020 release date.
The post in question, which was made across Twitter (below), Facebook, and Instagram, asks followers: “What racing game are you most looking forward to in 2020?” Many comments have jumped upon the GT 7 logo, as Gran Turismo 7 has not been officially announced or unveiled yet. The other games in the tweet–Dirt 5, Automobilista 2, and F1 2020–are all confirmed.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, this is not confirmation of Gran Turismo 7, per se. However, the manufacturer has a working relationship with Sony–the GT Track PlayStation edition is an officially licensed PlayStation product. Searching across numerous fan mock-ups, we could not find a logo matching this one–although it’s possible that the social media team at Next Level Racing is being speculative, and has created this logo internally.
Polyphony Digital has previously confirmed that a new Gran Turismo is in the works, so Gran Turismo 7 seems likely. Whether it’s a PlayStation 5 launch game, or a late-era PS4 release (much as Gran Turismo 6 was a late PlayStation 3 game), the idea of a new Gran Turismo releasing in 2020 is not far-fetched.
