Gran Turismo Sport server shutdown confirmed for January 2024

Gran Turismo Sport servers will be shutdown on January 31st, 2024, Sony and Polyphony Digital have confirmed today. From December 1st all purchasable downloadable content will be removed too, so if you do not get them before then you will miss out on that DLC forever. The server shutdown will mean no more online play and no more access to custom liveries, as well as some trophies not being obtainable anymore.

In a statement on the Gran Turismo site, Polyphony Digital wrote,“The online services of the PlayStation®4-exclusive software ‘Gran Turismo Sport’ will come to an end on 31 January 2024 at 06:00 UTC. Prior to this on 1 December 2023, we will also end the sale of purchasable Downloadable Content from the PlayStation Store.After the end of service date, it will no longer be possible to utilise online services such as the Community, Open Lobby, and the Sport mode, nor online features/items such as custom liveries. The offline portions of the game can still be played, including all previously purchased Downloadable Content.

We would like to thank the many users of the Gran Turismo Sport online service since its first launch in 2017. From here on, we will continue to further improve the online services for the currently available title ‘Gran Turismo 7’ on PlayStation 4 system and PlayStation 5 console.”

Gran Turismo Sport Review

In our Gran Turismo Sport review, Stefan wrote, “Gran Turismo Sport is a near essential purchase for PlayStation 4 racing fans. There might be a few disappointments in some of the limitations and regressions, but the brilliance of the game is in the small details that combine to enable willing players to become better drivers and racers and the implementation of multiplayer. Underneath it all, this is still a very familiar feeling Gran Turismo racing game, but it’s also one that’s set to grow and evolve over time and looks set to herald a new era of competitive online racing.”
