A video-game developer and publisher Codemasters have confirmed via their official Twitter account, that DIRT 5 is coming to PS5 on November 12, the same day the next-gen console will launch in the US.
They have also shared a few next-gen features related to the upcoming off-road racing game, such as the possibility of a free upgrade from the PS4 version, the option to play at 120 frames per second, etc.
- Cross-gen online with PS4 players
- 4K and 120fps options

After posting this tweet, Codmasters have met with serious criticism from the PlayStation community, because of the inability to transfer the game-save progress from PS4 onto the PS5 version of Dirt 5.
A lot of Twitter users blame both Sony and Codemasters for what they call an "anti-consumer move" towards the gaming community because the game-save progress can be transferred from Xbox One to Xbox Series S|X.
We have covered this topic in the article from the beginning of this month.
