DiRT 5 has been delayed again
Following a brief one-week delay back in August, Codemasters has announced a second, slightly longer delay for DiRT 5.
In a message posted to Twitter, the developer revealed that it is pushing the release date back from October 16th to November 6th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. This means that owners of the Amplified Edition will now be able to start playing on November 3rd.
“It sucks, we know,” Codemasters added. “Seriously, we can’t thank everyone enough for your support and excitement around DiRT 5, ever since its reveal back in May. The positive feedback we’ve received from hands-on preview sessions has blown us away, too. The start line is now a little further away, but it’s still very much in sight.”
The developer plans to reveal the final car list, more next-gen feature details, multiplayer, and more between now and launch.
DiRT 5 is now scheduled to launch on November 6th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions will follow later this year, with a Stadia release set for early 2021. As previously announced, all owners of DiRT 5 on current-gen consoles will be able to upgrade to the next-gen release for free.
