Eutechnyx has told VG247 the reason why there’s no PC version of the recently-announced NASCAR 2011 The Game is due to a “lack of retail space.”

Speaking to us following yesterday’s unveil, the publisher’s Dave Thompson did add it has have something planned for PC gamers.

“The lack of retail space for PC currently means it’s tough to justify the costs of development for traditional distribution,” said Thompson.

“Nevertheless, we have something up our sleeves that should satisfy the legions of dedicated PC racers – watch this space.”

Thompson also added he thought that Gran Turismo 5′s NASCAR segment would be “complimentary” to Eutechynyx’s take on the sport rather then it being just competitive.

“Believe it or not, I actually think that GT5’s offering will actually be complimentary to our own as it gives gamers an introductory taste to the world of NASCAR,” he said.

“I am a fan of the GT franchise, but we have to make very clear what GT5 has and how it differs from NASCAR The Game 2011. We believe that Sony has licensed a small selection of cars & tracks from the world of NASCAR and these cars & tracks exist solely within Gran Turismo’s standard game world.”

NASCAR 2011 The Game launches next February 2011 for PS3, 360 and PC.

    Gutted, I was really really looking forward to turning left, then turning left, then turning left again. The best bit is right at the end. The bit where you turn left.
