Codemasters' upcoming game, DIRT 5, will not be launching on October 16 as previously planned. The game will race onto the current-gen consoles and PC in November.
Codemasters have recently shared a tweet announcing that their upcoming racing game DIRT 5 has been delayed. The game's initial release date was set for October 16 but has now been moved to November 6.
Early Access for Amplified Edition players will now start on November 3.
DIRT 5 was announced during the 2020 Xbox Live presentation back in May 2020.
Codemasters' tweet reads:
"The release date for DIRT 5 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC has now moved to November 6th. The game is still set to launch on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 later this year.
It sucks, we know. Seriously, we can’t thank everyone enough for your support and excitement around DIRT 5, ever since its reveal back in May. The positive feedback we’ve received from hands-on preview sessions has blown us away, too. The start line is now a little further away, but it’s still very much in sight."
The devs continued by reminding the fans that those who own DIRT 5 on current-gen consoles will be entitled to the relevant next-gen optimized version of the game when it launches for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
DIRT 5 will be available on PlayStation 4 Xbox One and PC on November 6. The PlayStation 5 Xbox Series X versions will launch later this year. The Stadia edition will arrive in 2021.
