    On top of payments to the game publishers, I take it GamePass doesn't mean the DLC is for free. There will be an interesting point when WRC 2023 is released. If from that point, the Dirt Rally series is dead and cremated, there will be an outcry from peeps like us. But if it is to continue, then how is it distinguished from the WRC games, and what will it offer that is lacking in those? A lot of different cars and tracks will mean a lot of extra work for assets that can't be used in the other game. I can only guess the historic element will be nobbled in WRC. But can Dirt Rally offer a unique career mode that is totally different to WRC? There simply hasn't been any real career aspect of any substance in Dirt Rally so far. We can assume (or hope) handling and physics in WRC will be as good as Dirt Rally, because gimping that will mean few of us Dirt Rally fans would buy into the series.

    'Scary as Hell' was the Blair Witch Project tagline so maybe we will get an update of Screamer Rally where you play a girl running around in circles in a forest screaming a lot I hope so!

    We need a gritty, down-low, hand-held trackside replay camera set, with pans and zooms like RBR. Not an airy-fairy too-smooth floating drone style replay cam. The latter is weak and lacks the immersion that a game with Dirt in the title warrants.

    Jimmer's an interesting character. The man-child aspect is part of the appeal and he makes light acknowledgments of it. His random streamed playthroughs are not what he's good at. Where he shines is when he focuses and provides long-form racing commentary. His voice is terrific and ability to maintain the commentary is right up with the old pros. He evokes Murray Walker, who wasn't a real-life race driver either (his motorcycle efforts notwithstanding). Anyhow, carry on!

    NB the Xbox One X has had this feature with all games for a long while now, not sure about the S though

    What'd be nice is replays for all runs, even when re-starting. So those epic crashes you just couldn't stomach keeping can at least be viewed properly.

    Interesting take. I could really enjoy an offline career mode with the equivalent of 'timed quests'. You either take the rally on-offer in the next couple of days, or forfeit for what might come up next (randomised rally tree). Daggerfall the great, ultimate off-line RPG that was bigger than every on-line RPG and had procedurally generated quests, had this great trait.

    Hot Dog, great recommendation!! I bought it on the xbox after checking its reviews - played it this evening. Very enjoyable so far! Hopefully it gets less on-rails and the environments get a little larger, but anyhow. Thank you! Also: "The game outperformed EA's expectations, with CFO Blake Jorgensen voicing his pleasure at the game's success in the company's latest financial call. "Sales of Star Wars — Jedi: Fallen Order significantly beat our expectations," he said. "We had forecast 6 million to 8 million units for the fiscal year, but to hit the high end of that in the third quarter, and now we anticipate selling around 10 million units in the fiscal year, a very strong result for a single-player action game." https://www.inverse.com/gaming/star-wars-jedi-fallen-order-2-release-date-sequel-2022-already-in-development Single-player, off-line, no micro-transactions. You digging this, Codies?

    This is exactly what I'm saying That's awesome for you regarding career mode, you clearly don't play it But for those of us who do, you should be able to see that it makes sense for it to be off-line

    Agree with @JorritVD , keep career mode where it belongs: Offline I really can't see why on-line events should allow for any advantages among individual players based on what they may have done in career mode. Just allow all vehicles to all players on an absolutely even keel, and let them compete in events based on their on-line track record. Not their offline fictional pursuits. Then restrict the career mode more heavily, so cars are hard-won and there's a longer, more interesting and immersive rally driver pathway.

    Dear EA...

    We think you're great, and more power to you for purchasing Codies, who are pretty awesome. So this is just a note, for what it's worth, from a fan: As you probably already know: what is worth more than gold? The handling and physics model of DR2.0... This is the heart, soul, lover, and mother, of Dirt Rally. Without this, it becomes nothing. If cars magically 'right themselves' when they shouldn't in real life, it's all over, and the customer base is lost. Along with newcomers who find the authenticity to be a refreshing change, and a hook for lasting immersion and challenge. Yours, Jake the Rake

    EA and DiRT Rally - What do we think will happen?

    Now that is truly positive thinking! I still want Dirt Retro to be made. A 16 bit retro rally with rpg elements. So, an RRRpg. EA execs, DM me if this floats your Citroen DS, I have a stack of design concepts for it ok fine

    EA and DiRT Rally - What do we think will happen?

    But the negative's too much fun! Oh alright, alright: - Serious cash and resources/tech injection. So night-time lighting can finally look current-gen. And a better brand of rain noodles at launch, like gourmet italian.

    Blargh. I've now got the fear and agree this could be bad news. Merging of teams, 'synergies' and appeal to US tastes are all scary prospects.

    Per Steamspy, F1 2020 sold the same number roughly as DR2.0: https://steamspy.com/app/1080110 https://steamspy.com/app/690790 Obviously there's lots of variables in this, including console sales, but at first blush it doesn't indicate a glaring deficiency in DR2.0's sales compared to F1 I think DR2.0 had a lot more DLC as well?

    EA sports have published decent simulation oriented titles I believe, such as the golf titles. If a take-over took place before 2.0 was released, we might be a bit more worried. But now that 2.0 has set the direction firmly with a good commercial result, it would be really surprising if that direction was up-ended. I'm now REALLY glad that Codies took the Dirt series in that path! It's the lightning-rod for 'arcade direction'.
