Welcome to the brand new Codemasters Forums! Be sure to check the FAQ and Forum Rules before you get started.

Still no new Road book, updates or news.

I feel like this guy.

    ...They listen to our money more than our requests & complaints. They'll continue selling whatever we continue buying. What we put up with, we end up with. If we want better, we have to stop throwing money at worse. #NeverPreOrder

    It's been 4 months, I think I've let this sit on my hard drive without being played for long enough. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    I'm bummed it didn't work out the way I had hoped, but I won't say I didn't enjoy the 36 hours I played. I just didn't enjoy them *enough* to turn that 36 hours into 405 hours like Dirt Rally.
    I have spent 69 hours , but i feel done with the game and i dont think new content can bring me back...
    Dirt 4 was a mess , no bad at all but not great too...Better codemasters to start creating its new game i dont think people will come back to Dirt 4 .. Online is a desert since release

    If only Codemasters would give their fans a specific date for the release of a patch/update, instead of just saying "we're working on it" from time to time, I'm sure there wouldn't be this much bad energy here... I like the game, but it is annoying to be stuck in limbo to be honest.

    yep its sad to say it but dirt 4 is over but im not that bothered about that more that the damage it has done to possible future titles.

    that article has pretty much put what many of us felt and said.its not quite project cars 1 bad but its not great.

    Same for me. I'm actually one of ones that likes the game for what it is (and defended it) but was holding out for some tweaks,  improvements and possibly DLC's. I've been around gaming since well, the first consoles and have never seen this type of action from a dev (at least with the games I was vested in). Especially these days. For better or worse, there's always subsequent patches, support and DLC's. CM just rolled this out, slapped a couple patches out and called it a day. Blows my mind. 


    As some one else said, as long as consumers keep eating crap, they'll keep selling steamy piles with a smile.

    Maybe the team should at least give us just some information on what they are working at the moment @ChristinaMc

    Because I'm convinced many people will go on playing Dirt 4 as soon as clubs and other things are being updated...but the team should keep the players motivation alive by sharing at least a bit of information on what is being developed... @KickUp @CMMcBabe

    Some people here just speak negative but I'm sure there are lots of true fans out there who still believe in this game (I do!)

    I never play at the weekend - it's family time then!
    Guess I'm not the only one that plays just during the week...so I don't really give anything about statistics!

    weekend is when most people play games...
    It always used to be for me, but most of my weekends are either spent at motorsport events or doing DIY if I'm at home! I pretty much exclusively game in the evenings now. From the few members of the forum that I know, I think there are quite few of us who are a bit older and have commitments!

    I would like to know what's going on at Codemasters. Having met a few members of the dev team it was pretty apparent that they were all genuinely passionate about the subject material and the game(s) they were producing. I daresay you didn't even need to meet them to appreciate that: just look at how many members of the team were posting on the forum, at all hours of the day, to answer questions...

    ...and then, almost overnight, that stops. If the game was a total disaster, then that might explain it, but it's not. Critically it was well received and, although some areas need work, I still think the positives by far outweigh the negatives. That means there must be some other reason for the silence.

    Thanks @ChristinaMc for the reply...maybe you could give a small hint what fixes you're working on...?!

    Just playing devil's advocate here - what if there isn't a specific date for updates locked in yet? We want to let you know it's coming, but we don't know when - surely slightly vaguer phrasing is better than no phrasing? We're working on the Clubs update and the accompanying patch which will include a suite of fixes, and as soon as we have a date, it'll be everywhere we can feasibly put it! But for now, it's just not something we can share. And while it's frustrating, it's a lot better than us making up a date and not delivering when the time comes because of an unforeseen issue - we just want to be sure. :)

    Seriously? A big company such Codemasters work that way? No deadline or anything like that?

    I can understand there is always bugs and undesired technical issues during development, but there is always a deadline (even if it's not clear the exact day). This sounds like in a few months you will post "We tried hard to deliver the best update possible, unfortunately the changes were not easy and we will apply it in our new 'hiperhyped' title, which by the way is now ready for pre-order/early-access".

    Why would you spend that much time in a game no-one is playing?
