Final Gran Turismo 5 patch to be released on May 31st

Written by: / / No Comments


Earlier this year Sony revealed that all of Gran Turismo 5′s online services will be terminated on May 30th. Now the platform holder has announced that the game will receive a final patch the next day to coincide with GT5′s servers going offline that effectively disables all its online features.

Here are the patch notes in full:

• All online services will be disabled. This includes the [DLC] option from the Main Menu, the “Consecutive Login Bonus” for [GT Life], “Open Lobby”, “Seasonal Events”, “Online Dealerships”, “Car Delivery” and all features within the [Community] section.

• [Gran Turismo TV] featured on the Main Menu is part of the online service, but programs previously purchased will still be available for viewing until their validity period expires.

A message for fans on the game’s official website reads:

“We would like to sincerely thank all our fans for their support playing Gran Turismo 5 over the past 3 years, and we hope to see you all again on Gran Turismo 6, available exclusively on PlayStation 3.”
