DIRT 5 Delayed ‘To Be Closer To Next-Gen Launches’

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;

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#B4FF12″ class=”” size=”21″]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. 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 its 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.[/perfectpullquote]

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.
