Dirt Rally 2.0 Has No VR Support Planned

But Codemasters is listening to demand.

Dirt Rally is widely regarded as one of the best VR racing experiences available, so expectations of the recently announced Dirt Rally 2.0 are high. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Dirt Rally 2.0 will be upholding VR support for the sequel.

Speaking to USgamer today at a Dirt Rally 2.0 preview event in London, Codemasters community manager Christina McGrath confirmed that VR support isn’t planned for the sequel as of right now. “We're focusing on making the core game experience before launch - and after that, if there is demand from our community, then we'll explore the possibility,” McGrath said.

The original Dirt Rally released in December 2015 on PC, then came to PS4 and Xbox One in April 2016. VR support was not added until February 2017 (for PC and PS VR), and was premium DLC.

As for Dirt Rally 2.0, we'll be travelling to the new location of Argentina when the game launches next year. There'll be over 50 cars in total, and track degredation is a brand new feature being implemented by Codemasters for the sequel, meaning surfaces will become loose and unstable for successive drivers on the same course.

Dirt Rally 2 is set to release on February 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. No Switch version of DiRT Rally 2 has been announced.

[Correction: We originally listed Dirt Rally 2's release date for October. It is actually in February 2019. We regret the error.
