A professional racing cockpit manufacturer based in Australia seems to have confirmed than Gran Turismo 7 will be be out this year this year which means it could be one of Sony’s big launch titles for PlayStation 5.

Next Level Racing is an official PlayStation licensee, making very big and very expensive cockpits so players get a better simulation when playing driving games. On their Instagram page they asked “What racing game are you most looking forward to in 2020?” and posted four logos representing new games. Dirt 5 is shown and we know that’s real, as is F1 2020 and AMS 2, the short name for Reiza Studios’ Automobilista 2.

Sitting between those games is the Gran Turismo logo along with the number seven in the corner.

As the other three games exist it would seem odd they would mock up the GT7 logo, and as mentioned they are partnered with PlayStation so will have inside knowledge on upcoming games. Also, they’d be very silly to create a fake game, Sony would not be happy. Then again, they’re not going to be happy when they notice they’ve posted the Gran Turismo 7 logo.

We still don’t know much about Sony’s new console but VentureBeat reporter Jeff Grubb has hinted that we might find out a lot more early in June.

First is a Sony event in early June. The company was originally planning this for June 4, but is moving it around. The exact date is more nebulous now. That doesn’t mean it’s slipping by a matter of weeks, though. The early June timeframe is still the company’s current plan.

Recently the Unreal engine developer Epic suggested that the hardware will blow even the best PC gaming rigs out of the water thanks tot he ultra-fast SSD.

Epic CEO and founder Tim Sweeney was speaking on the Summer Game Fest stream and said “The hardware that Sony is launching is absolutely phenomenal. Not only an unprecedented amount of graphics power, but also a completely new storage architecture that blows past architectures out of the water and is far ahead of even the state-of-the-art, highest-end PCs you can buy.”

  1. I hope this is true – a Gran Turismo to start a generation would be massive!

    • Same here, it’s one of the games I’m most looking forward to on PS5.

      • As long as there’s decent wheel support at launch. Which, you know, there should be, but racing games have taught us not to expect it.
