In a new report, Polyphony Digital has confirmed there are no plans to bring their huge Gran Turismo 7 title to PC, but also has not ruled out the eventuality.
A recent report in November from GTPlanet suggested bringing the racing sim to PC would be “considered,” but a new report on Thursday directly confirmed that Gran Turismo 7 is not in active development for PC. Polyphony Digital, helmed by series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, confirmed this in an interview with Dengeki Online.
In a direct question that seemingly follows up the November report, when asked whether “It seems that you have told the overseas media that you are researching and developing a PC version of ‘GT’, is this true?” Yamauchi responded, “That is not true. Regarding the PC version, I replied, ‘(as a developer) I’m not thinking about all the possibilities.’ It means that the possibility is not 0, and if you just ask ‘Are you doing anything concrete?’, you are not doing anything. I have nothing to tell you,” in a Google Translate of the interview transcript.
Sony has recently ported other PlayStation exclusive titles to the PC with resounding success, titles such as God of War, Spider-Man and its Miles Morales laden sequel, and Horizon Zero Dawn netting millions in sales for the short periods they have been actively available on PC.
Gran Turismo 7 may not be in development for the PC just yet, but creator Yamauchi still says the “possibility is not 0,” but the development process of Gran Turismo 7 for the PlayStation was extensive judging by the interview’s series overview. There is plenty of unrest regarding Xbox and PlayStation exclusives right now. Unfortunately PC players are involved now, and should hold off on having any type of anticipation for the series to jump ship from the PlayStation, but if money does indeed talk, the series will eventually race onto the platform.
