The boss of the studio behind the Gran Turismo series has said that the franchise may expand beyond the PlayStation format for the first time in its history – with a PC version in China.

Speaking to German site derStandard, Kazunori Yamauchi, head of Sony's Polyphony Digital team, said:

 “It is very, very improbable that GT will comes out on another consoles.

“But perhaps it comes to the PC. Particularly [for] the Chinese market."

In the interview, he also revealed that the full version of Gran Turismo 5 – which is still without a release date – had been worked on by 150 people for four years and has cost 50 times more to make than the original GT1 on the PlayStation.
