Gran Turismo 7 PC: Steam release coming for GT7?

share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Gran Turismo 7 is a PlayStation exclusive, we all know that. But it could also be making its way to PC.

No, that doesn't mean you are going to need to crack out an emulator like for Gran Turismo 4. The game could legitimately be available via Steam.

Why? Let's take a look!

PlayStation exclusives coming to PC?

It's a crazy thought I know, but we could finally be seeing a raft of PlayStation exclusive games coming to PC.

This stems from the amazing God Of War (2018), a PS4 exclusive title, getting a Steam release on 14 January 2022.

This official port follows Days Gone and Horizon: Zero Dawn as PlayStation Studios games coming to the PC-only storefront.

What does this mean for Gran Turismo 7?

Let's get one thing clear right away, this doesn't mean that GT7 will be available to PC players on 4 March 2022 when it releases on PS4 and PS5.

It could be that Gran Turismo 7 will be available eventually via Steam, but given a fairly lengthy delay in getting PlayStation exclusives to Steam so far, don't go expecting it any time in 2022.

It could be as long a wait as 2024 before GT7 is available, as Sony will want to keep demand high for the PlayStation 5, as well as protect its own rather profitable digital store by retaining exclusives for a long period.

By then Assetto Corsa 2 should have arrived, making GT7 potentially less appealing. Though getting it running with a 3090 and uncapped frame rates could be an absolute game-changer.

Upgraded damage model


Gran Turismo 7 will feature a huge improvement that fans have been clamouring for. An upgraded damage model.

The details for this are still unknown, but Gran Turismo creator and Polyphony CEO Kazunori Yamauchi has stated taht the damage will be upgraded when compared to GT Sport.
