Codemasters has published a new blog entry on their official site teasing a potential DiRT spin-off.
The British-based developer stated the following:
“Prepare to see something new roar to life in the world of DiRT, very soon.”
Besides the quote above, Codemasters has confirmed the title will be developed by a separate Codemasters studio which could suggest a mobile game or perhaps a smaller tie in.
The DiRT series already has a spin-off with 2012’s DiRT Showdown. However, it’s highly unlikely this teased title is a sequel given the nature of how Showdown was received upon launch and the fact that Codemasters has teased this new title will be “a brand new experience”.
The blog post also confirms that Codemasters currently has no plans for additional Season content for DiRT Rally 2.0, however, fans can look forward to “plenty” of Esports action as well as the ongoing Daily/Weekly/Monthly challenges and Clubs content.
Finally, Codemasters have “a few things in mind” for the future of the DiRT Rally series and tease “big plans” to take the Rally series to “even greater heights”. The British developer has also stated that we won’t hear about a DiRT Rally sequel “for a while”, let’s hope that means we’ll get a content-rich game that the series deserves.
