Dirt 5 Release Date Announced

Codemasters and Deep Silver today announced that Dirt 5, the upcoming racing video game and the latest in the franchise, will officially release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on October 9th. Though both an Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 version were announced alongside the initial reveal, no date has been attached to either, and given that we still don't have a release for either next-gen console, there is no telling when it will be announced.

Alongside the release date announcement, Codemasters also released a new trailer featuring voice actors Troy Baker and Nolan North all about the game's Career Mode, which is divided into chapters and multiple paths. Baker and North voice Alex "AJ" Janiček and Bruno Durand, respectively, in the video game. Baker plays the "superstar and fan favorite" while North portrays "a veteran who quickly becomes the game's antagonist."

Here is how Codemasters describes Dirt 5 on its official website:

"DIRT 5 is the bold new off-road racing experience created by Codemasters. Blaze a trail across the most iconic routes in the world. Drive the widest roster of cars from rally icons, to trucks, to GT heroes and lots more. Play through a star-studded Career, four-player split-screen, innovative online modes, livery editor and more new features, DIRT 5 is the next generation of extreme racing."


Dirt 5 is set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on October 9th. The game already announced that both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions will release as well, though no definitive date has been announced. Given that we still don't know exactly when either next-gen console will release, it makes sense. You can check out all of our previous coverage of gaming right here.
