Gran Turismo creator Yamauchi was recently reported as saying Polyphony was “looking into it and considering” bringing the game to PC.
Seemingly referring to those comments in a new interview, Dengeki Online asked Yamauchi if he had confirmed that Polyphony was researching and developing a PC version of Gran Turismo.
“That is not true,” he responded (translated by Twitter user Genki_JPN). “Regarding a PC version, I replied ‘[as a developer] it’s not that I haven’t considered all the possibilities’. That means that the possibility is not zero, simply if you ask me ‘are you doing anything concrete?’ I am not doing anything. There is nothing to talk about.”
In a separate PlayStation Blog post celebrating the franchise’s 25th anniversary, Yamauchi said Gran Turismo game sales had topped 90 million units as of November 16, 2022.
“And this result is something that could not be accomplished by ourselves alone,” he said.
“Behind that 90 million figure, there are all the people of the media who conveyed the allure of Gran Turismo to their readers. There are the people of PlayStation who sold GT for us around the world with passion, and there is the incredible amount of support from the retailers who interfaced with our users.
“My heartfelt thanks goes out to all of them for their support.
“And above all else, I can’t ever thank enough the GT users and people of the GT community who have played our new titles, which at times could be said to have been very experimental.”
