The last ever update patch for Gran Turismo 5 will be released this Saturday, to coincide with the termination all of the game's online services and features.

Officially noted (without much fanfare from developer Polyphony Digital) on the Gran Turismo website, the '2.16' update patch for GT5 will be made available for players to download this Saturday on May 31st from 4PM British Summer Time.

Polyphony Digital has also confirmed the update will disable the following elements of Gran Turismo 5, which all require an Internet connection to operate:

  • DLC option from Main Menu
  • Consecutive Log-In Bonus
  • Open Lobby (i.e. online races)
  • Seasonal Events
  • Online Dealerships
  • Car Delivery (in-game cars rewarded to players as 'gift tickets' )
  • The entire 'Community' section
  • Gran Turismo TV (no videos can be bought from GT TV from May 31st, but players can still view clips they've purchased until the expiry date)

GT5 was one of my favorite games on PS3. Had a blast running some leagues with the Super GT 500 cars! Hope they leave the servers up for the foreseeable future since I'm pretty sure it's the best selling game on PS3 (exluding GTA V).

I'll look forward to it and for once I'm not bothered wether its DLC or not because in terms of racing sims, Assetto Corsa is definitely more friendly on your pocket - free multiplayer etc. I hope that doesn't change when it leaves early access.

Its nice to see that they're not using lens flare, it really annoys me when its used in cockpit view because cockpit view is often for a more realistic driving experience yet it can be ruined by lens flare which is an effect only present on lenses (unsurprisingly). *ehem* Next Car Game *ehem*.

Yes this certainly has huge potential and mixing bikes with cars could be a good thing in terms of investment. Bike games have often been a mixed bag in terms of reception, so perhaps we'll see some bikes in GT7 and then if that works out, a full blown Tourist Trophy 2 further down the line.

I'm not going to get my hopes up because there have been too many rumors for far to long.  But after GT6 the only thing that would make me buy another GT title would be the addition of bikes (and a good selection of those at that).

In regards to Tourist Trophy, that game still holds up today.   Not perfect (bikes a tad to floatly) but over all it gave me the closest sense of how it feels to...

once upon time I use to buy multiple copies of Milestone titles (PS3, PC, Euro and US versions) but not anymore.   Why try to support a company that doesn't care about it's customers.  Can't say that MotoGP 14 was a disappointment because it was about as good as expected and that's not saying much.  Same issues as always......A LACK OF EFFORT. and as such after 4 laps I just put the game away....
