Will we still see Dirt 5 come out in 2020? For the time being, it still looks so, but how much longer can the wait possibly get?
The last time we had to report on this, Codemasters’ racer had been moved one week to October 16. It’s now slipped even further, by almost a month, and is now set to come out November 6. A new press release broke the news, stating “The revised launch date will allow Codemasters to release all versions of the game in a shorter timeframe, with the next generation of console launches expected for the holiday season.”
Dirt 5 will take racing fans all over the world, from Brazil to the US to Morocco. This installment will boast the largest variety of vehicles of any DIRT to date, including rally, 4×4, sprint cars, sports cars, monster trucks with big wheels and many more. There are 13 classes of cars in all..if you ever get bored, mix it up.
Most recently, Codemasters announced the Playgrounds feature, an arena creation mode that lets players choose from three gameplay styles (high-speed Cate Crasher, stunt-focused Gymkhana and demolition derby Smash Attack) and share their original creations with others online. It’s the focus of the most recent trailer, embedded below.
DiRT 5 will be released on Playstation 4, XBox One and PC November 6, followed by next-gen versions for Playstation 5 and XBox Series X later in the year (we have not heard of a further delay for those versions).
