FANS think that a Ferrari driver has been teasing a F1 23 announcement on Instagram.
Charles Leclerc currently drives for Scuderia Ferrari has teased the reveal is not far away.
Leclerc was front and centre in F1 22.
Players expect that the next entry in the series should be released in Summer 2023.
Leclerc posted a picture of himself to the social media site wearing Ferrari merch.
However, unusually this outfit was blue, instead of the team’s signature red.
He was seen standing next to his car decorated in the flag of his home country, Monaco.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted that Leclerc was wearing a microphone, suggesting that it was taken as part of a promo shoot.
Under the photo Leclerc wrote: “I like the sweater and I like the car. More to come EA Sports F1.”
The last entry in the F1 series of games, F1 22, was announced in April and released in July.
This is also the timeline of F1 21, the first game to be released in EA Sports’ series.
Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox have listings for F1 23 already, and players are able to add the game to their wishlists.
Last year’s entry had a new mode that would allow drivers to collect sports cars, and customise their hobbies.
Fans have speculated that the promo shot could have been for this new lifestyle mode.
The setting for the promo image would fit in perfectly to the mode’s usual settings.
Leclerc was on the cover of F1 22 with a number of other drivers, and he could be appearing on the next cover as well.
Two-time F1 World Champion Max Verstappen was announced as the official brand partner of EA Sports earlier this year.
It’s likely that Verstappen will be given pole position when it comes to F1 23’s marketing.
Leclerc and Verstappen are both known as passionate gamers outside of the F1 series.
