Fans have felt the haptic feedback in DiRT 5 for themselves and have been impressed but in a new statement from an interview with GameOnDaily, Technical Director at Codemasters, David Springate said the following:
“I’ve seen a lot of people say ‘I want to pick up DiRT 5 on PS5 because of the haptics.’ It’s really interesting to me because I’ve seen a lot of people I hang out with on various forums, and I hang out in the DiRT 5 Discord… I’ve seen a lot of people say they really like the PS5 haptics. We’re not happy with it, so we’re going to be revisiting our haptics. Even though I’ve not seen anybody say, ‘I hate the haptics in DiRT 5,’ we are not happy with it so we’re going to go back and redo it.”- David Springate
David Springate did not mention when the updates will take effect, though this already won’t be the first tweaking Codemasters has done with the new features on the Dualsense controller. They’ve already released an update which improved the adaptive triggers in-game. It’s good to see developers taking advantage of the new features right away.
