Sony has been slowly porting the bulk of its catalog to PC, and has even acquired Dutch developer Nixis to speed up its efforts. With rumors of an imminent return to storefronts like Steam, developer Polyphony Digital has hinted that Gran Turismo 7 could also be released on computers in the near future.
Series creator Kazunori Yamauchi briefly commented on the possibility in an interview GT Planet This weekend at the Gran Turismo World Finals in Monaco. When asked if his team would consider adapting their latest acclaimed sim racer, the author admitted, “Yes, I think so.” It’s worth noting that the release was listed in an all-encompassing NVIDIA leak, which has largely turned out to be true.
Yamauchi was keen to quell expectations, however, explaining that the title is effectively designed to take full advantage of the PlayStation hardware: “There aren’t many platforms that natively support the game in 4K, 60fps. can run, so there is a way we have to make it possible. Narrow the platform. This is not a very easy topic, but of course, we are looking at it and considering it.
Gran Turismo 7, obviously, is already a multiformat title, because it spans two generations of PlayStation: both PS5 and PS4. As such, we can’t imagine that there will be many problems in converting it to computers – even if it comes with some heavy hardware requirements. While there are plenty of racing sims already available on PC, there’s nothing quite like Gran Turismo, and we believe it will prove popular.
