GTPlanet is here in Monaco for Gran Turismo World Finals and Gran Turismo’s 25th anniversary event, and we had the chance to sit down with GT series creator Kazunori Yamauchi.

A lot has changed since we last spoke with Yamauchi-san, and one of the most interesting developments in the industry is the release of titles from First-party flagship PlayStation Studios on the PC.

Some of Sony’s biggest franchises have already made it to the platform, including Santa Monica Studio’s God of warInsomnia Games’ Spider Manand Naughty Dog’s Unexplored 4with others expected to follow.

Naturally, this has led many to speculate whether Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo series could also make the jump, and we were curious to ask Yamauchi-san if this was something he would consider.

“Yes, I think so,” Yamauchi replied.

But, there are some caveats.

“Gran Turismo is a very well-tuned title,” explained Yamauchi-san. “There aren’t many platforms that can run the game at 4K/60p, so one way to make this possible is to narrow down the platform. It’s not a very easy topic, but of course, we are looking into it and considering it.”

Of course, Gran Turismo 7 it could technically already be considered a multi-platform title. The game runs well on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, and PlayStation 5 consoles, offering slightly different levels of fidelity depending on the hardware. Resolution, textures and track-side detail are down for older systems, while the PS5 offers the full 4K/60p experience and even supports ray tracing in replays and menus.

While there are many popular and highly sophisticated driving games and sim-racing titles available on PC, there is nothing like Gran Turismo available on the platform. Such an expansion would be one of the most significant developments in the history of the series and would introduce many new players to a game which – for the past 25 years – has always required PlayStation hardware to play.

Needless to say, Yamauchi’s comments will encourage us to keep a close eye on PlayStation Studios’ expansion to the PC platform moving forward. Until then, look for more from our interview with Yamauchi-san here in Monaco very soon.
