Gran Turismo 5 Patch 2.16 Will End Online Functions on May 31st
In what will probably be your final reminder from us that Gran Turismo 5’s online features are disappearing on May 31st, Polyphony Digital has announced a couple of things that will take place on the final day of this month.
First up, there will be server maintenance from 4AM BST to 6AM BST on May 31st, with patch 2.16 releasing during that maintenance period. When the maintenance is over, the online functionality will be gone, as the patch notes point out:
- 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.
- 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.
The final Gran Turismo 5 event is still ongoing, and ends on May 30th.
