Dirt 5 Releasing for Current-Gen Consoles This October
Codemasters has officially announced the release date for their upcoming sequel to the Dirt franchise, with Dirt 5 releasing on October 9th for current-gen consoles. During a recent story trailer Troy Baker, Nolan North, Donut Media’s Nolan Sykes and James Pumphrey all make an appearance as they will be in the game. The story will apparently be the most ambitious Dirt story to date and this star power will add to the overall experience. Dirt 5 is racing onto the Xbox One, PS4 and PC through Steam on October 9th, with future PS5 and Xbox Series X releases on the horizon.
“We’re massively excited to confirm October 9th as the beginning of Dirt 5’s launch, alongside some new in-game screenshots and a special video, featuring some of the stars of Dirt 5’s amplified world of racing,” said Codemasters Community Manager Chris Groves. “With Career mode being our focus throughout June, we wanted to deliver you some insight on how the series’ most ambitious story ever is weaved into Dirt 5’s Career, through the voice acting work of industry stars Troy Baker and Nolan North, along with James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes from the off-the-wall car culture channel Donut Media.”
“Following October 9th, Dirt 5 will also be launching on Xbox Series X and PlayStations, using the power of next-gen consoles to create an off-road racing game that’s truly groundbreaking,” continued Chris Groves. “In more ways than one… From the extensive background material created for the main characters, to the unique approach to recording and storytelling, to the instant chemistry of everyone involved, this video sheds light on how the dynamic and entertaining narrative of Dirt 5 that you’ll experience was put together.”
