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).

Interesting there's no mention of any classic car content, given that it was such a major selling point of F1 2013.

Yes the power gulf between PC and consoles has expanded to a point that the PC is already a next-gen system.

Of course a much better TT bike racing experience than Tourist Trophy by most likely much better than Jester and Grand Tourismo 7 already exists. The TT Isle of Man Moutain course add-0n for the gp500 pc game.

Aracde physics? I'd rather play something better myself..

Yes, F1 2015 will be on PC. Codemasters announced it on their Facebook page.

Hopefully the "Next Gen" F1 2015 game will also be on PC and not just a console exclusive! Great news that they're releasing new games earlier in the season now!
