The WebKit layer (formerly WebKit2) needs to be ported, yes. Sony is 
slowly working on this [1], so they would be the best people to ask 
about the status, and you could collaborate with them if interested.

Then GTK-specific code will also need to be ported. We've assumed that 
PLATFORM(GTK) implies !OS(WINDOWS) for a long time.

Finally, if you do get it working, know that it will break continually 
in future releases unless you actively keep fixing Windows-specific 
issues. (E.g. the macOS build has apparently not worked for about a 
year now.)
