Developer Polyphony Digital has announced the PSVR support for Gran Turismo Sport, however, the game will not be fully playable in VR.

Polyphony Digital President Kazanori Yamauchi has confirmed that Gran Turismo Sport will not be fully playable in VR and will have VR Tour game mode instead. This means that players will probably not be able to race with the VR headset plugged in.

Recently, Gran Turismo creator, Kazunori Yamauchi, said that gaming “deserves” to be considered as a true sport and developer Polyphony Digital will be at the forefront of this shift.

And we are excited to partner for this official FIA world championship because gaming deserves that. It’s a true sport, it deserves to be treated like a true motorsport and we want to be at the forefront of that.

Gran Turismo Sport is an upcoming racing video game in development at Polyphony Digital and will launch sometime in 2017 exclusively for PlayStation 4.
