Gran Turismo Sport Closed Beta Ends This Week


If you’re in the beta you may only have a few more days to get behind the wheel.

The Gran Turismo Sport closed beta test is reportedly wrapping up this week, with Polyphony Digital waving the chequered flag on the beta at 11PM Japan time on July 16. The news comes via Twitter where a number of Japanese beta players are reporting a post from an official, private GT Sport beta forum.

IGN has contacted Sony for confirmation.

The beta received regular updates across its duration. The final update, which arrived just last week, introduced tyre wear, fuel depletion, and car damage.

The GT Sport closed beta originally launched in North America back in March and later kicked off in Europe during April. It was eventually rolled out in Japan and Oceania at the end of May.

For those who registered and received an invite, it seems you’ve only got a few more days to get behind the wheel. Sony is yet to confirm a precise release date for GT Sport but has narrowed it down to between late September and December.
