Huh... When I played on PC I used an Xbox controller. Don't think I'd ever want to go back.

Xbox one has some keyboard recognition. Mouse not so much as mouse support isn't implemented yet. Not all keyboard functions work but some do I've tested this myself with general controls found online

Why would you want keyboard and mouse support on PS4?

Additional keybindings I guess rather than general game play?

I'm not sure what good it would do. It's not like consoles can have the more complicated features like GPS or Courseplay which would require a keyboard. And driving with a keyboard is just the worst.

I have played many hundreds of hours on the game and still have enough problems remembering what buttons are for what feature at times without having to refer to help menu so wouldn't have a cat in hells chance using a keyboard.

the key board on console is only really useful for getting the dev menu up other than that using it to play is useless

The only point I can see if is if they added Course play into the game. Be the only reason I would use a keyboard and mouse.Though I would prefer to use the right joystick as the mouse functions. Keyboard and controller would be enough without having to add a mouse into it as well.

because we got more keys to use (hazard lights for example)

For now, lacking of more buttons is not the reason we can't get hazard lights or other mods.
So, a keyboard doesn't help on that front.

Besides, as a developer you wouldn't prefer to release a game that requires specific hardware that is not included in the box of the console.
You can do it but with the cost of loosing customer.
VR games for example. There a lot of VR games now but I don't buy because I don't want additional hardware.

On XB1, hazard lights are RB + DPAD Up. Turn signals are RB + DPAD Left/Right. Don't know about the PS4, but it must have something similar.
