The developers of Gran Turismo Sport announce a downtime for the servers of the popular racing simulation. A new update is also to be rolled out. When this will happen and what you can expect from the new patch, we will tell you in the following.
The announcement that a new update for "Gran Turismo Sport" will be made available this week comes as a bit of a surprise. Additionally, the servers for the multiplayer races will be unavailable for some time. The new update is the first in the new year, the last one dates back to November 2020 with version 1.62.
What‘s in the new Update for GTS?
Fortunately, the installation of the new update will not be particularly disruptive either: In the night from Wednesday to Thursday, the server-side work will go over. Since the update will be installed only three days before the start of the new season of the FIA Online Championship, the assumption suggests that this patch is only intended to prepare the game for the upcoming events and their smooth execution.
In the last 12 months, "Gran Turismo Sport" has received a total of six updates, which have gradually made the game what it is today: arguably one of the best racing simulations for the Playstation 4 and Playstation 5. Unfortunately, there is still no further new information about the real successor "Gran Turismo 7". If you look at Sony's release calendar for Playstation 5 games in 2021, then we can probably only expect the new racing game in November 2021. We will of course keep you up to date on this.
