Dirt 2 was a success after selling more than 1.7 million copies worldwide since its release back in September. Codemasters have released some details about the next in the series, Dirt 3.

“We know from the stats we can pull from Dirt.net that a major proportion of players are more casual than ever,” said Codemasters’ brand manager Edward Newby-Robson.

“The racing studio is already well underway with the next project and continues to develop the EGO engine and push in-house technology to bring new consumer benefits.”

“Some features which have as yet not been seen in a Codemasters Rally Studio game will make a welcome return and, of course, it wouldn’t be a Codies game without some new surprises.”

“Both the brand and development teams have taken great pains to understand our racing community to ensure that future Dirt titles are built with them in mind, whilst keeping the mainstream appeal that the broader range of consumers demand.”

Newby-Robson then went on to add that the Dirt franchise could borrow technology from upcoming and highly anticipated racer Formula One 2010, thanks to the EGO engine that powers all of Codemasters’ biggest titles.

“The nature of a unified engine means features developed for one franchise will benefit others, so you’ll be seeing the dynamic effects in Formula One 2010 in future racing titles,” he said.

“This sharing and some healthy competition between studios means players will reap the rewards in the next iteration of the Dirt franchise, with even more extreme environment conditions.”

I’ve yet to play Dirt 2 but it’s soon becoming a platinum and classic game so i’ll be able to pick it up on the cheap. Are you looking forward to another Dirt game being released? Discuss your thoughts below!
