Gran Turismo 7 PC Port Might Not Be Arriving Anytime Soon

It seems as if all the speculations surrounding Gran Turismo 7 arriving on PC didn’t hold much water after all.

According to the game’s producer, Kazunori Yamauchi, there are currently no plans to release Gran Turismo 7 for PC. Despite the fact that the iconic racing game franchise has always been a PlayStation exclusive, a few major leaks and rumors sparked hope for the PC gaming community. While it’s not true that the rumors were totally baseless, there was also evidence to support them.

Earlier the producer himself said this while talking about the possibility of a PC port in the future.

Yes, I do think so. Gran Turismo is a very finely tuned title. There are not many platforms that 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.”

Yamauchi, however, largely refuted that claim in a new interview published today in the Japanese magazine Dengeki Online. The options are wide open, he claimed, but nothing specific is currently being done.

That is not correct. I said that “as a developer, we stay open to all possible options”. So, the probability for a Gran Turismo 7 PC version may not actually be zero, but if you want to know what we’re actually doing regarding a PC version, the answer is nothing. There’s nothing to talk about.

This statement, on the other hand, doesn’t rule out the possibility that the game will arrive on PC at some point in the future, all it does is imply that the team isn’t specifically working on this right now. On the other hand, with any other public industry, all of this may simply be a distraction for people to keep their thoughts off of the PC port, so that when it does finally arrive, there will be a lot of anticipation and excitement surrounding it.

During that interview, he also talked a little bit about the game’s development, and it was very interesting to hear. It would take a single person up to 270 days to model a single car in GT7, which is why the models have such an extreme level of detail in comparison to other modern racing games.

Each car in GT7 is created with approximately one million polygons, he said. He also mentioned that there are currently only 250 people working for the company as part of the staff team. With the interview, the franchise also celebrated its 25th anniversary, and at the occasion, it seemed like they had big plans for the future.

Leave a comment below telling us whether you think the game should be ported to PC or whether you think the game’s exclusivity is what makes it what it is.
