Dirt 5 has been delayed — once more — by three weeks. Instead of arriving in October 16, the following chapter of the Dirt racing franchise will now launch November 6 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. This is the second delay for Dirt 5, after being pushed per week, final time round. In all, Dirt 5 has been delayed a month now. As earlier than, early entry begins three days earlier, on November 3. Dirt 5 remains to be holding onto its unspecified 2020 launch date for next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X, developer Codemasters added.
Codemasters has had a long term with the Dirt label, going again to 2007 within the PS3 and Xbox 360 period, when it was known as Colin McRae: Dirt. Since then, it is given us 4 mainline entries (naturally), along with a few spin-offs: two extra lifelike outings in Dirt Rally, and yet one more arcade-y in Dirt: Showdown. Dirt 5 is necessary to next-gen consoles because it’s one of many solely racing video games at launch, with Microsoft (Forza) and Sony’s (Gran Turismo) exclusives at the moment in improvement, and with out a launch date of their very own.

“The release date for Dirt 5 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC has now moved to November 6, 2020, with early access for Amplified Edition players starting on November 3,” Codemasters mentioned in its announcement. “The game is still set to launch on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 later this year, followed by Google Stadia in 2021.
“It sucks, we know. 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.
“Don’t forget: anyone who owns Dirt 5 on current-gen consoles will still be entitled to the relevant next-gen optimised version, when it launches, free of charge.
“More Dirt 5 news and brand new gameplay is coming your way between now and November. Get ready for first looks at new cars and locations, the final car list, more next-gen feature details, and a full reveal of Dirt 5’s multiplayer features. Stick around – we’re just getting started.”
Dirt 5 will roll in November 6 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and later in 2020 on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
