Gran Turismo 7 has been released for quite some time now on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, and the game has had its own issues since its launch. From extremely strong monetization to incremental price increases, Polyphony Digital’s recent outing in driving simulations has had its own share of controversy. On a lighter note though, an interesting twist has occurred.
Earlier today, at the Gran Turismo World Finals in Monaco, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi was present and made a series of comments regarding a future PC version of Gran Turismo. In a report from GTPlanet, Yamauchi said the following:
Yes I think so. Gran Turismo is a finely tuned title. There aren’t many platforms that can run the game at 4K/60p natively, so one way we make it possible is by narrowing down the platform. It’s not a very easy topic, but of course we research and think about it.
Polyphony Digital releasing the series’ latest outing on PC isn’t really an outrageous idea.
Given that God of War (2018) and Horizon Zero Dawn have also seen their own releases on PC, it’s possible. There have also been rumors of other games like Returnal ending up on PC, which also happens to be another PlayStation exclusive title (as of this writing). However, it should be noted that this is by no means guaranteed; It’s just a consideration.
If anything, there isn’t much reason to avoid porting it to PC, but in the end, it’s up to Yamauchi, Sony, and Polyphony to decide whether or not it happens. We don’t know if it leads to anything fruitful, but we’ll update if it ends with a computer ad. We’ll continue to update as more information about Gran Turismo 7 is released, including patches, downloadable content, and more.
Gran Turismo 7 is now available on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
