    Well either way it hasn't shut down yet here, so I'm guessing it'll shut down AM time your end, as unless mistaken, it's meant to shut down at 12PM over here, unless I've got it mixed up.

    Someone has decided to pull the plug on one of the most successful online racing games ever produced. We virtual racing enthusiasts who enjoyed the online camaraderie of GT6 do not seem to have any recourse whatsoever. Just bite the bullet and buy into the new franchise, we are told. In the name of those who have not bought into GT Sport for all sorts of reasons, I stand with the thousands who are left stranded here. We shall continue to exist and we shall remember how we were treated.

    The last day, guys.

    Brace yourselves! The patch will be coming to remove the online tab!

    RIP last Gran Turismo with complete Tracks and Cars!

    Ok I’m sry

    I totally agree I believe we were treated poorly they should keep online services going on gt6 at least the open lobby part because that’s literally the only think everyone cares about

    This seems appropriate:

    :(

    Also, apparently this was still in my post draft. Apologies for the necro-response:

    As far as I know, every Forza title outside of the first one still works for online racing, though in FM2/FM3's cases, some other community features are dead.

    This makes me regret ever getting sucked into the GT franchise, now I'm wishing the mate who first introduced me to sim racing had an Xbox instead of a Playstation.

    So far every Gran Turismo game since GT5 has used dedicated servers for everything online-related. That means they need to be shut off at some point. GT6 was shut off much sooner, but it had the unfortunate circumstance of being launched on a console that was already on the way out.

    Not sure about the Forza series exactly, but I’m pretty sure their games use Peer to Peer for the online racing, and then they use dedicated servers for everything else that’s been shut down on the side. Peer to Peer has the benefit of always working as long as XBL or PSN is still up, but it’s known to have some pretty awful lag and connectivity. At least it still works.

    Polyphony didn't have to do this.... First of all this is the last GT on PS3, so the least they could've did was keep the servers up for players who like this type of gran turismo and not whatever they doing with GT Sport

    The final few second of me being in the servers, i was AFK and away from Home. The final race i ever done was a one lap dirty race with an Orange Mitsubishi Legnum VR-4 (The Wagon Galant). I managed to stay almost one more hour on the lobby until i got disconnected.

    Rest in Peace, Gran Turismo 6 Servers. I would love to thank @Ameer67 and @nascarfan1400 for all the fun i had back in 2015. Thank you all.

    Once it gets to lap 199 start going backwards to make it last longer.

    How does it feel to be in the final online room in GT6?
