Dirt 5 delayed to November, PS5 and Xbox Series X still this year
Dirt 5 has been hit with another delay, although this one will mean both current and next gen versions will release closer together.
We already knew that upcoming racing game Dirt 5 will be receiving next gen versions on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, but when they’ll come out is unknown, since we don’t have official release dates for the new consoles.
Both consoles are expected to release in November, and that looks even more likely as Dirt 5 has been delayed from its initial October release to 6 November.
In a statement from developer Codemasters, this is so both the current and next gen versions of the game will release within the same time frame, heavily suggesting that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions will come out later that month – or perhaps even that very day.
‘The revised launch date will allow us to take advantage of the next generation console launches which are expected in time for the holiday season,’ said Codies’ Frank Sagnier.
While the wait between the two versions may be shorter now, those still eager to grab the game as soon as possible can be rest assured that they will be entitled to free next gen upgrades.
There will also be an Amplified Edition that comes with exclusive content, as well as three-day early access.
Stadia users will have to wait a bit longer, though, as that version won’t be available until early 2021.
With several next gen releases looking to release in November, Microsoft has already admitted the Xbox Series X will release that month. Sony has not, but it’s widely assumed it’ll also be sometime in November.
Dirt 5 will release on 6 November for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X releases will come later this year. The Stadia release is scheduled for early 2021.
