A Croatian electronics retailer has published a new listing for a game called “Gran Turismo Sport” and is now accepting pre-orders. For its placeholder image, they appear to have created their own “Gran Turismo 7″ graphic.

Typically, this type of listing is nothing to get excited about – online stores often begin accepting pre-orders and publishing incorrect release dates for games years before they’re officially announced, in hopes of attracting links and attention.

However, things are a bit different with this company, Sancta Domenica. They have an exclusive agreement with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, and are the sole importer of PlayStation products in the countries of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Their use of the name “Gran Turismo Sport” is also interesting. Notorious Gran Turismo insider Amar212 – who is also based in Croatia and runs Croatian GT fan site GTSurgeons – first teased the “Gran Turismo Sport” name in a post on NeoGAF last month.

Kudos to Wax Free Vanilla for digging it up.

Yup, nothing shady about making their GT 7 logo. Seems legit.

Yeah and the marketing picture has a 7 after the name. Probably some fake shit, so I'm not even getting my hopes up.

Yamauchi won't deliver before Holiday 16'

Interesting, I wonder if they are dropping numbers, or if this will be a prologue type deal focusing on GT cars.

Sounds like GT7s Prologue.
Maybe they're launching the game in tiers.
Gran Turismo Sport is the base model.
Gran Turismo Turbo is a step up. (Car DLC included)
Gran Turismo Premium is the top tier. (Car DLC, New track DLC, GPS track editor)

In its most recent ITW, Kazunori Yamauchi said that we will not have to wait until 2017 to play "the next Gran Turismo". That's how he called the game, instead of using "GT7" like the interviewer. For what it's worth ^^

Either that or F2P, or a completely new spin-off to off-set the main GT releases.

Could be a neat idea, especially if they can get Evolution to help them out. Hope its Fall 2015.

Best wishes.

Gran Turismo Sport isn't necessarily Gran Turismo 7
Next-gen Gran Turismo Prologue incoming?

It's entirely possible that this is a spin-off which focuses only on a subset of the vehicles that would later be included in Gran Turismo 7.
e.g. Gran Turismo Muscle, Gran Turismo Classic, Gran Turismo Kart(?)
