by on September 8, 2020

British developer Codemasters has confirmed that DIRT 5 will be releasing in November on PlayStation 4, the Xbox One family of devices and PC. The November date for DIRT 5 is a revised launch date from next month in October and will allow Codemasters to release all versions of the game in a shorter timeframe. News that is particularly interesting as the next generation of consoles are expected to launch in time for the holiday season.

“DIRT 5 has received widespread critical acclaim, culminating with it receiving the Gamescom 2020 Best Racing Game Award,” said Frank Sagnier, Chief Executive Officer at Codemasters. “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.”

Players who purchase the Amplified Edition will receive exclusive content and three days early access. The game supports both Xbox Smart Delivery and PlayStation’s free upgrade when players switch to an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5.

The new launch date has been confirmed as Friday 6 November for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, followed by Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 later this year. The Google Stadia version is expected to be released early in 2021.
