“It is not that easy.”
Gran Turismo 7 was released on March 4th this year. The latest game in Sony’s popular racing series is currently only available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, but that may change in the future.
In an interview with the website GTPlanet, game manager Kazunori Yamauchi said that his team – Polyphony Digital – is thinking about bringing the game to PC. He points out that it will not necessarily be an easy task, but confirms that it is something that is being considered.
“Gran Turismo is a very finely tuned game. There aren’t many platforms that can run the game at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second, so one way we managed to do that was to limit the number of platforms. It is not an easy topic, but of course we are looking at it and evaluating it”, said Yamauchi.
Sony has become more active on the multi-platform front in recent years and has released a number of PlayStation games for PC. The Japanese company has not said anything about PC plans for Gran Turismo 7, but if it were to happen in the future it would probably be at least a year after the original console launch.
“Finally able to sell cars”
Despite a lot of positive reviews from critics, Gran Turismo 7 has had a turbulent life since its launch. Among other things, fans have criticized the game’s microtransactions, as well as the fact that it is not possible to sell redundant cars in the garage.
Admittedly, the game’s latest update – released last week – has fixed the latter. Cars can now be sold via the Car Valuation Service, a service which, admittedly, only becomes available after you have completed all 39 GT Café chapters in the main game.
