Gran Turismo 5 Online Maintenance Schedule Released

Gran Turismo 5 77 August 23, 2011 by

Polyphony Digital has taken an unusual – though certainly welcome – opportunity to announce scheduled downtime for Gran Turismo 5‘s online services through mid-September. While it is not clear what, if anything, these maintenance periods will bring with them in the form of software updates, it’s worth noting the release of new GT5 versions have frequently been released after network downtime.

Here’s the schedule, though actual start and end times may vary:

  1. August 23, 2011, 10:00-16:00 EST
  2. August 29, 2011, 22:00-23:00 EST
  3. September 6, 2011, 10:00-18:00 EST
  4. September 13, 2011, 10:00-18:00 EST
  5. September 9, 2011, between 10:00AM and 6:00PM  Eastern Standard Time
  6. September 15, 2011, between 10:00AM and 6:00PM Eastern Standard Time

Kazunori Yamauchi has already confirmed we’ll be receiving a “lean” late August update, so it is reasonable to assume it will become available after one of this month’s maintenance windows. Thanks to Blake for the tip!
