Codemasters reiterated that DiRT 5 is also receiving a PS4 to PS5 upgrade, with next-generation versions of the game confirmed for a later date. Presumably this means we’ll be getting them for launch, but that remains to be seen.
Here’s the official blurb on DiRT 5:
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.
