Gran Turismo is officially the best-selling first-party PlayStation franchise in history, and it may take a while longer before it shows up on PC.
A bit ago, Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi appeared to say that Gran Turismo 7 could arrive on PC. This led to a lot of speculation that the studio was actively exploring opportunities to bring the landmark racing series to PC for the first time, and possibly even developing and/or optimizing a PC version.
Now Yamauchi clarifies these reports by saying Polyphony is not actively working on a PC version of Gran Turismo 7 or any other Gran Turismo game.
Here's what Yamauchi said in a recent interview with Japanese gaming website Game Watch, as translated by GT Planet user flimmelblitz:
Q: "Some media outlets are reporting that you're researching and even developing a PC version of GT7. Is that true?"
A: "That is not correct. I said that 'we stay open to all possible options.' So the probability for a PC version may not actually be zero, but if you want to know what we're actually doing, the answer is nothing. There's nothing to talk about."
Releasing the best-selling PlayStation franchise on PC could be a big move for Sony. We've seen multiple high-profile PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 games cross over to PC over the years starting with Horizon Zero Dawn and more recently Spider-Man Miles Morales, and Sony expects PC to be a significant contributor to its fiscal year earnings with a projected $300 million to be earned during the year.
In a 25th anniversary celebration post, Yamauchi had previously confirmed that the Gran Turismo franchise has sold over 90 million units worldwide across all PlayStation console generations.
