Codemasters has delayed DIRT 5. The publisher announced the news this morning on Twitter saying that the upcoming racer won’t make its 16 October 2020 release date. Instead, DIRT 5 will now release on 6 November 2020 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. This won’t affect the next-gen release. If anything, the publisher claims the delay is because they want to release all versions of the game in a shorter timeframe.
In a statement, Codemasters said;
Our road trip just got a little bit longer. Thank you for being part of the journey with us. ?️ ❤️ pic.twitter.com/p5c8MDUfKo

Codemasters claims the delay lets them take advantage of the next-generation console launches which lunch this holiday season. Perhaps many gamers will now hold off on buying the game just to get it on PS5 and Xbox Series X on day one. With no release date in sight, other than the rumoured 6 and 13 November for Xbox Series X and PS5 respectively, it is going to be interesting to see when the racer will release.
