Gavin Chesire, the VP of Codemasers, talked to Edge Magazine and mentioned that DiRT 3 has been confirmed as being in the works. Here is what he told them.
"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."
So, that means that DiRT 3 is gong to re-invent the wheel again?.. so to speak? He also stated that DiRT 2 was far too American, While I can totally agree with that statement, I hope this title doesn’t end up just a US bash fest.
Personally, I can NOT wait for this game to drop. I loved DiRT, Grid, and Dirt 2. I am a little nervous about them messing with the mechanics of Dirt 2, but I have faith, Codemasters haven’t steered this series wrong so far. Keep up the good work!
