Dirt Rally 2.0 skids onto Xbox One and PC in 2019

Dirt Rally is a popular racing game which exclusively tackles driving in tricky conditions. Dirt Rally came out last year and since then many gamers have been clamoring for a sequel. Today, developer Codemasters announced Dirt Rally 2.0. The game will launch on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on February 26, 2019. So far, only Xbox One X enhancements have been confirmed.

According to the developer, Dirt Rally 2.0 will take players to six rally locations around the world. The title will also feature cars from the 2018 "FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy" season as well as eight of the official "WorldRX" circuits. Codemasters Chief Games Designer Ross Gowing issued the following statement alongside the reveal.

We are thrilled to finally be able to talk about Dirt Rally 2.0. Rally is incredibly important to Codemasters and the entire team is absolutely dedicated to creating the most authentic experience possible in a game. Our passionate, knowledgeable community helped to make Dirt Rally a special title. We have been working with a selection of that community alongside a roster of real-world rally drivers to ensure that we meet their high standards, We are not afraid to make a challenging game. Driving a rally car down a stage is not easy, and we want players to experience that same adrenaline rush from driving on the edge.

Hopefully Dirt Rally 2.0 will be a bigger experience than the original. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the title.
