We have been working with a selection of that community alongside a roster of real world rally drivers to ensure that we meet their high standards,” continued Ross. “We are not afraid to make a challenging game. Driving a rally car down a stage is not easy and we want players to experience that same adrenaline rush from driving on the edge.

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed DiRT 4 last year giving it 4 stars, calling it. “a solid rally racing game that attempts to appeal to all corners of the market.” The DiRT Rally games differentiate a bit from the main DiRT games however, and are tailered more towards a realistic rally experience, something many fans have appreciated.

Dirt Rally 2.0 launches on February 26, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC platforms. For more information, check out the DiRT Rally 2.0 announcement Codemasters blog here.
