Those of you waiting for DIRT 5 will have to hit the brakes once again as Codemasters has announced that they are having to delay the game again.
It was going to release on October 16 but will now release on November 6 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Those who get the Amplified Edition will still get it three days early starting on November 3. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X version are also still planned for Holiday 2020 and they will be free upgrade to anyone who buys it on current gen consoles.
The reason for the delay was mostly so that they could release all the versions closer together. You can read their statement below.
Hey everyone, 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.
