Recently, it seemed like racing cockpit manufacturer Next Level Racing leaked the existence of Gran Turismo 7 through a social media post that had the game’s logo on it. However, the company denied this and wrote a statement saying:

Our team has recognized that a recent post by us using a logo has been misinterpreted by media and it does not reflect any information from our end, and we deny knowing any information regarding the launch of GT7. There have been assumptions made in the media that are quite simply untrue. Due to this, we have decided to take down our previous social post. Our Graphic Design Department used the mock logo that is circulated on the internet.

We do apologize for any confusion that this might have caused.”

However, no one has been able to find this mock logo and we did ask for clarification from where the logo was sourced from but Next Level Racing did not reply to our query.
