GTPlanet learned about this during an event celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Gran Turismo series, where they managed to interview Polyphony Digital CEO, Kazunori Yamauchi.
In recent years, Sony has been slowly changing its approach to platform exclusives, porting some of them to PC. After God of War, Uncharted 4, Spider-Man, and more, some began to wonder if the same was in store for Gran Turismo – so GTPlanet, among others, asked the developer of the famous car sim if he was considering such an option.
And Kazunori Yamauchi answered in the affirmative: “yes, I do think so.” But, he says, it will be difficult to do 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.”
Well, it seems the CEO of Polyphony Digital is being a bit sneaky here: Gran Turismo 7, although it is a Sony exclusive, feels good on the PlayStation 4, the performance of which is not that impressive today. Therefore, the main thing in porting GT7 to the PC will not be the technical side of the issue, but Sony’s willful decision. And judging by the latest trends, it is quite possible – probably that is why Polyphony Digital is already thinking about how exactly it can be implemented.
