Gran Turismo 7 is "looking into" and "considering" bringing the famed racing franchise to PC.

GTPlanet (opens in new tab) recently sat down with series creator Kazunori Yamauchi (thanks, VGC) and asked if developer Polyphony Digital would consider making the Sony first-party racer available on PC, too, following the success of other Sony ports like Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales - which released on PC earlier this month - and Sackboy: A Big Adventure and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, both of which made the jump to PC in October. 

"Yes, I do think so," Yamauchi responded when asked if Polyphony Digital would consider doing the same.

However, Yamauchi was keen to stress the difficulties, particularly for a 4K game.

"Gran Turismo is a very finely tuned title," Yamauchi explained. "There are not many platforms which 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."

The GamesRadar+ Gran Turismo 7 review (opens in new tab) gave the racer an impressive 4.5 stars out of 5, saying: "Everything that made GT Sport so good, plus everything that made early Gran Turismo games so good. A simply stunning driving game and a superb showcase for PS5.

"Fundamentally, this is one of the best driving games I’ve ever played," the review concludes. "Not as bright or arrogant as Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, nor as gorgeously-presented off the track as Forza Motorsport 7. 

"But the most telling thing is that I just haven’t been able to stop playing it since I installed it, which I find is increasingly rare for a driving game. Gran Turismo 7 is the real deal and every PlayStation owner should buy it."
