It’s not uncommon to see PlayStation exclusives being ported over to PC today, including God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Horizon Zero Dawn. However, when Polyphony Digital was pressed about its flagship racing series’ latest entry, Gran Turismo 7, the developer said that they’re currently considering and looking into a PC port as well. It won’t be an easy task, though.
Speaking to GTPlanet in a recent interview, Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi was asked about whether or not the studio would consider a PC port of Gran Turismo 7 sometime down the line. Yamauchi replied with: “Yes,I do think so.” However, he also stressed that it won’t be an easy task to port it over to another platform.
Yamauchi explains in more detail why Gran Turismo 7 PC port would be a tricky process:
“Gran Turismo is a very finely tuned title. There are not many platforms which could run the game in 4K/60p natively, so one way we make that possible is to narrow down the platform. It’s not a very easy subject, but of course, we are looking into it and considering it.”
Gran Turismo 7 released earlier this year to plenty of positive reviews, though it was criticised over time for its controversial microtransactions and pricing for vehicles. Nonetheless, it still managed to earn nominations for Best Sports/Racing Game and Best Audio Design at The Game Awards this year, where it’s one of the frontrunners to win in those categories.

Gran Turismo coming to PC would make sense as the racing franchise has always boasted some of the best visuals in the gaming industry. The game would benefit from having it pushed to its limits on a platform like PC.
Gran Turismo 7 is currently available for PS4 and PS5.
