Five year deal starts in 2023.
Codemasters, makers of & # 39; s beloved Colin McRae Rally series and the critically acclaimed Dirt Rally Games, secured the official WRC license from 2023 (as reported by GI.biz), with a deal that & # 39; currently running until 2027.
It means that it will take quite some time until we see the fruits of our deal, with a new game of & # 39; to earn a Dirt Rally team before the deal begins, and with Dirt 5 also on & # 39; the list after & # 39; t was revealed earlier this year. Bigben Interactive continues to hold the license and will continue to produce games in the meantime, with this year WRC 9 set to continue the impressive run of developer Kylotonn on & # 39; e series.
The last game of Codemasters to carry the official WRC license was Colin McRae Rally 3 back in 2002, after which it was picked up by Evolution Studios for a run of PS2 exclusive titles before Milestone entered.
