Codemasters set on bringing Dirt Rally to consoles

Kevin Dooley On May 17, 2015

Lead designer of the PC-only Dirt Rally, Paul Coleman, recently conducted an interview with Red Bull Games where he revealed that Codemasters may well be looking to bring their new rally racer to consoles once the PC version is complete.


Coleman explains that he wants as many people as possible to have access to Dirt Rally:

"I want really to be in the hands of as many players as possible and I’m well aware that the PC market is only a section of the wider gaming market, so ultimately I want players who invested in consoles rather than PCs to be able to experience this game first hand."


Coleman understands the importance of perfecting the product before shifting the focus over to the larger console market, adding:

"Early access is the pathway or road that we’re using but I think that once we get to the end of that road we can confidently be packaging and curating a console experience from the content and also from the learnings that we had on PC for our console audience… I think it’s something that we should be actively looking to do.”


Dirt Rally surprised us all late last month when it appeared on Steam Early Access from out of the blue. The early access version comes with 36 stages which are spread across three locations, and 17 iconic rally cars from both past and present. You can also sample Dirt Rally's full changeable time and weather effects too.

Once the game is complete it is expected to sell for £24.99. You can see our first impressions of the game in the gameplay video below.
