Thrustmaster Reveals Name of Upcoming Wheel: Meet the T-GT

Hardware 1066 June 9, 2017 by

Thrustmaster has revealed the name of its upcoming wheel ahead of E3 and it goes by the name of “T-GT”. Originally teased on the Thrustmaster Facebook page, the name of the new peripheral disproves prior listings of the “T700”.

The new wheel will be present at this year’s gaming event, where Thrustmaster will be showcasing several other products. Those attending will have the opportunity to put the wheel through its paces for the first time.

Full details remain a mystery, though we’re well aware the T-GT will compliment the upcoming GT Sport when released. 

Over the past few days Thrustmaster has posted a number of close-up images that reveal very little; however, the one detail that has shone through is the “Mode” switch. The switch offers two options: “GT” and “Other”.

We are proud to officially unveil the name of Thrustmaster’s new masterpiece.Congrats to those who were talented enough yesterday to guess it!Come check out and try this new wheel at #E3 at the Sony #Booth4322 #WestHall #E32017 #Thrustmaster

Curiously, the company will be aligning itself with a “world-class automotive supplier.” This appears to be a response to Logitech teaming up with McLaren-Honda.

Though the intentions may differ entirely, it will prove interesting to see who Thrustmaster has partnered with. Barring any last minute revelations, the next batch of news on the T-GT wheel will arrive alongside E3 next week.
