Gran Turismo 7, one of the biggest PlayStation releases of the year to date, was under server maintenance for hours because of an issue found with the game’s latest update. “Due to an issue found with Update 1.07, we are extending the current server maintenance,” the message on Gran Turismo website from this morning. “We will confirm the completion time as soon as possible.”
The maintenance means the majority Gran Turismo 7, which includes both career and multiplayer modes, is unplayable and it’s unclear when the maintenance might end. Developer Polyphony Digital hasn’t detailed what the underlying problem might be, and Sony didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Based on Polyphony . Patch NotesUpdate 1.07 adds a number of bug fixes and changes, including a broadcast mode remove all licensed music. However, Polyphony said they have also adjusted rewards for some events and players seems to have found that for many races you now get less credits, making it harder to save in-game money for more expensive cars.
Sweep through Gran Turismo subreddit, obviously Many special fans are not satisfied with the credit changes in the patch. Sony sells in-game credits for real-world dollars that can get you the cars you want, but those microtransactions cost more than $60 or $70 that you paid just to buy the game (depending on whether you get it for PS4 or PS5). It’s unclear if Polyphony made the change to the credit payout in response to fan outcry.
