Dirt 5 has been slightly delayed from its original release date - October 9. Codemasters announced that the game is now scheduled to launch one week later - October 16, 2020.
One of the most anticipated racing games of 2020, Dirt 5 has suffered a minor setback. The game was originally scheduled to release on Friday, October 9 but now has been moved to October 16, 2020. The publisher Codemasters did not say what is the reason behind the delay but have confirmed that players will get three days' early access if they purchase Amplified Edition of the game. This means you'll get to play Dirt 5 on October 13, 2020, if you spend some extra money on the special version.
"Dirt 5 will now launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 16, with three days’ early access (Oct 13) for Amplified Edition players. Thank you for all your support and excitement so far – we still have so much more to show you," they wrote in the announcement.
As for the next-generation version of Dirt 5, Codemasters made it clear that they are still working hard on this ultimate version of the game and that free upgrade for those who get the game on current-gen is still very much on.
Dirt 5 is officially coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game is also set to release on next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X once the systems hit retailers.
