Not too long ago, the racing expects at Codemasters were picked up by EA. These days, the studio is known primarily for its F1, GRID and DIRT games, which will all come under the EA Sports brand in future. Or will they?
A new report from exputer (via Tom Henderson), says that Dirt may well be finished, for now. According to the report, Dirt Rally 3 was "scrapped in late 2021" and WRC will now fill that rallying gap for the racing studio.
This claim is further backed up by the fact that Dirt's Twitter page was changed to 'EASPORTSRally' last month, which does signal a change in focus for the developer.
To be honest, this all makes a lot of sense. Codemasters acquired the rights to develop WRC games a few years ago, starting in 2023. Dirt's 'Rally' offshoot is a realistic simulator compared to the main series, meaning it'd be rather similar to a WRC game.
