Sony is undoubtedly planning to bring more PlayStation exclusives to PC, but its latest flagship racing game isn’t one of them, according to Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi, who told Dengeki Online in a new interview that a PC version of Gran Turismo 7 isn’t in development.

“That is not true,” Yamauchi told the publication after it quizzed him about earlier comments that he made to GTPLANET that suggested otherwise. “Regarding a PC version, I replied ‘[as a developer] it’s not that I haven’t considered all the possibilities’. That means that the possibility is not zero, simply if you ask me ‘are you doing anything concrete?’ I am not doing anything. There is nothing to talk about.”

In an article dated November 26, 2022, GTPLANET asked Yamauchi whether Gran Turismo could be making the jump to PC, to which he replied positively.

“Yes, I do think so,” Yamauchi said before going on to explain how Gran Turismo is a finely tuned title but that the team is open to the possibility. “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.”

“With the reintroduction of the legendary GT Simulation Mode, buy, tune and race your way through a rewarding solo campaign as you unlock new cars and challenges,” reads a description for the game, which is available to play on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles. “And if you love going head-to-head with others, hone your skills and compete in the GT Sport Mode.”

Gran Turismo 7 attracted much controversy when it launched for its use of microtransactions.
