The latest update to Gran Turismo Sport is now with us, and it’s largely in line with current expectations.
Given that Polyphony Digital is likely to be flat out on Gran Turismo 7 right now, it was a surprise that an update to GTS was even in the works. Though there are still content items outstanding — such as the Lamborghini Vision GT revealed back in November 2019 — the fact that we’ve only seen seven new cars across 2020 and 2021 strongly hinted that any new update would center on housekeeping rather than game content.
That’s proven to be the case here, with a relatively compact patch that’s addressed a single item: in-game logos. The brief patch notes state that the “Main Features Implemented” are “UI – Some in-game logos have been updated”.
It’s not actually totally clear which logos and where. The rather vague wording could apply to anything from manufacturer logos in the Brand Central or Livery Editor decals to the trackside ad boards and banners, or even circuit logos — and in fact fictional logos would come under this broad brush too.
Of course GTPlanet users will likely dig out any subtle changes, but other than probably keeping brands and sponsors happy, it’s not a major update. Doubtless there will be other unannounced changes too, but for now this appears to be the entire scope of v1.67.
That’s also a firm indication that, despite the fact GT Sport will likely persist well into 2022 as the latest offering — pending any GT7 release date information that might come in today’s PlayStation Showcase — the game is likely in, or close to, its final state now.
We’ll bring you any more information as we get it.
