Gran Turismo chief says devs are 'looking' at a PC port

Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi isn't ruling out a PC port for the long-running racing sim franchise. In an interview with GTPlanet (via Eurogamer) during Sunday's Gran Turismo World Finals, Yamauchi told the outlet that the Polyphony Digital development team is "looking into" bringing the series from PlayStation to PC.

"Gran Turismo is a very well-tuned title," Yamauchi told GTPlanet, as well as expressing some concern about running the game consistently in 4K at 60 frames per second on all platforms. "It's not a very easy subject, but certainly, we are looking at it and considering it."

Gran Turismo 7 was released exclusively for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 back in March, and its potential jump to PC would mark an important milestone for the series. Previous installments of the game, which span over the last 25 years, have never been on any platform other than PlayStation.

If Gran Turismo 7 (or any other game in the series) does come to PC, it won't be the only PlayStation-exclusive title to do so. Sony has already brought some of its most popular games, including Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone, God of War, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves, to PC, with more likely on the way. , Jim Ryan, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, said during an investor presentation in May that the company expects to release half of its games on PC or mobile by 2025.

Last year, PlayStation Studios also acquired Nixxes Software, a tech developer group that has worked on PC ports and game optimization for titles such as Marvel's Avengers and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The company was also seen hiring a senior director of PC planning and development in April.
