Digital Spy reports:
You remember when Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital said Gran Turismo Sport wasn't Gran Turismo 7? Yeah, we do too. But apparently that's now not the case.
Speaking during a round table attended by Digital Spy at the Gran Turismo Sport unveiling, Polyphony confirmed that the game could have been called Gran Turismo 7 after all.
"The reason we called it Gran Turismo Sport was that we really wanted to incorporate the FIA events," explained Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
"Thinking about it now, yeah, we could have called it Gran Turismo 7. But it's got so many features, we wanted it to be different."
So there you go. It is actually Gran Turismo 7 but with a new Gran Turismo Sport name.
