Gran Turismo 6 Online Services on PS3 Will Shut Down in March 2018

Gran Turismo 6 released back in December 2013, but now it’s time to pull the plug.

Sony and Polyphony Digital is putting an end to the game’s online services next March. Starting from the end of January 2018, Gran Turismo 6’s downloadable content won’t be available for purchase any more. This includes the GT6 Track Path Editor currently available on mobile devices.

On 28 March 2018 at 12:00 UTC, the online services of the PlayStation®3-exclusive software “Gran Turismo 6” will come to an end. Prior to this on 31 January 2018, we will also end the distribution of downloadable content that can be used in-game.

After the end period, it will no longer be possible to utilise online services such as the Community, Open Lobby, Quick Match, and Seasonal Events. The offline portions of the game can still be played.

We would like to thank the many users of the Gran Turismo 6 online service since its first launch in 2013. From here on, we will continue to further improve the online services for the currently available title “Gran Turismo Sport”.

With the end of the online services, the distribution of the “GT6 Track Path Editor”, currently available on “Google Play” and the “App Store”, will also end as of 28 March 2018. After the end of the online services, it will no longer be possible to transfer track data created with the “GT6 Track Path Editor” to “Gran Turismo 6”.
