A post on Dirt 5 official Twitter account revealed that the game development at Codemasters is slightly delayed; hence the launch date is changed from October 16 to November 2020. However, the game will launch on Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 later this year. Early 2021 is the launch date for Google Stadia users.
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 early 2021.
Recently Chris had the chance to play the game, and he applauded the game. This is what he had to say about the game:
“So, DiRT 5? You know what, you rarely get the time to truly delve deep into early copies of games. Usually, it’s a few hours after a presentation – you can get a feel, but bits can be missed. Here, I’ve enjoyed every little bit and explored so much that I’m praising the big and the little, things like puddles and music playing from the side of a track. It that doesn’t say what I think about DiRT 5, nothing will.
Maybe that is excessive praise from an early first-impressions. Maybe it’s building up the anticipation a little too much. I genuinely can’t think of a game to have made a better first impression on me than this. Keeping it simple: DiRT 5 looks like it will be the next-generation of racing.”
