Polyphony Digital announced a special maintenance notice earlier today regarding Gran Turismo 5‘s online services, which will be offline for approximately two hours starting January 15, 2013, at 20:00 GMT/UTC.
Although online service maintenance notices do not, of course, suggest an update will be provided for the game, they do often precede their release.
The timing of this notice is especially curious, as the Corvette C7 Prototype will first be revealed to the public without camouflage on Sunday, January 13. Due to the secrecy surrounding the car’s design, the new model will likely need to be downloaded via a game update for players to use the newly revealed version of the car in GT5.
As always, stay tuned for more announcements.
