A collaborative wiki about the Colin McRae series of Rally and DiRT video games that anyone can edit.
Codemasters has been developing and publishing the Colin McRae and DiRT racing games since 1998. While the early games focused primarily on the Rally discipline of racing, the DiRT Series started to take the series to other race formats. Gymkhana was introduced to mixed feelings and led to rally being overshadowed in DiRT 3. After DiRT 3, Codemasters decided to take a break from the series and until recently, did not release a new game. In the spring of 2015, Codemasters released an Early Access version of DiRT Rally on Steam and detailed plans for release on Xbox ONE and PS4.
DIRT 5 is the eighth and most recent installment in the DiRT series developed by Codemasters. The game was announced on 7 May 2020, with the release date set on November 6, 2020. It's one of the launch title for the Xbox Series X, making it the series' first game on the ninth-gen consoles. It will also launch on PC, Playstation 4, Playstation 5 and Xbox One. It is also scheduled to be released on Stadia in 2021.
