Polyphony Digital confirmed a few days ago, that a new patch for GT Sport was incoming and that players could expect version 1.04 worldwide today and as promised, the latest update for the game has arrived.
However according to the latest patch notes released today, 1.04 has been skipped over completely and players can now expect patch 1.05 instead. Polyphony has not disclosed why 1.04 got missed, but our guess is that they are simply making sure everything is in place for the FIA GTSPORT CHAMPIONSHIPS that are starting tomorrow on the 4th November.
