After following up Dirt with Dirt 2 last year, the studio behind the rally racer confirms that it's working on a Dirt 3
Gavin Cheshire, the vice president of Codemasters Studios, told Edge magazine that the U.K. publisher is indeed working on a sequel. Characterizing Dirt as a reboot (of the Colin McRae Rally series) and then Dirt 2 as a reboot of a reboot, Cheshire says we can expect, what, a three-boot with this one?
"Dirt was a complete reboot – we threw away what was going on and redid it completely – and then we rebooted Grid because it wasn't top gun, and then we rebooted Dirt 2," Cheshire said. "I'm not saying we're throwing all the codebase away, but we're throwing the thoughts away and coming out with something fresh and new. Because if you don't innovate, you're dead."
He also indicates we might hear more words like "aluminium" and "shed-ule" in the sequel.
"Dirt 2: brilliant game but it's all American accents, so maybe we're a little over the top with those," Cheshire said. "Maybe we should fly the flag a bit more."
