    DiRTy Gossip Thread

    Hello, I've been following tweets, hints, interviews and posts appearing from Codemasters on the next rally game. I wanted to put the information in one place so that we can all try reading too much into it all :) If you spot a hint or an article please post in this thread - cheers! (Arranged in a slightly random order...) Codies Weekly Update blog entry 11-04.2014http://blog.codemasters.com/2014/04/codies-weekly-update-11-04-14/ It’s like the calm before the storm this week, developers are getting builds ready, the PR guys are preparing PR stuff and the Community Team are busy teasing something…  When I read the above I got very excited! The teaser next week may be for the next racing game (GRID TOCA?), F1 2014 (too early in the year IMO) or :| maybe just maybe the next rally game. Even a gaming site picked up this teasing paragraph :)Could this be? https://twitter.com/dirtgame/status/434359333204131841 Throwback Thursday tweetshttps://twitter.com/dirtgame/status/451750782237294593 https://twitter.com/dirtgame/status/449194387965095936 https://twitter.com/dirtgame/status/441599219326287872 https://twitter.com/dirtgame/status/436543658355990528 #tbt can mean many things, but I'll read into this what I want - the next game will be much closer to CMR series than ever :) Codies Weekly Update blog entry 11-04.2014 Great write up by @justbiglee on what DiRT devs were up to when they travelled to Wales to spectate on WRC Rally Wales GB. Would they bother if they weren't making something? :) DiRT Scooby adventures: Paul Coleman's blog entriesVery interesting insight into how Paul and Jon decided to compete as a team on rally stages. So now chief designer on the next rally game is an active co-driver and project manager is a rally driver? I'd say that's a pretty good set up for developing an authentic rally game :) Drivers visiting CodiesTom Cavehttps://twitter.com/dirtgame/status/413049018898739200 https://twitter.com/tomcaverally/status/413048353833119744 Liam Doranhttps://twitter.com/MrHarveyParker/status/395987607118970880 https://twitter.com/MrHarveyParker/status/395845924519673856 https://twitter.com/LiamDoran3/status/395598699667415040 David Binkshttps://twitter.com/David_Binks/status/451297850539134976 https://twitter.com/David_Binks/status/449100808060428288 https://twitter.com/David_Binks/status/449099942569971712 https://twitter.com/David_Binks/status/448820199845019648 (I think there were others, but I can't find them just now) Codemasters opening its doors to community play tests Great interview with Paul Coleman @KickUp about DiRT game design'so unbelievably stoked about the whole direction we're going in and the authenticity we've managed to get just from basically stripping back the system right down to its core; and starting building it back up piece by piece. It still feels like a great rally game, but it's so much more authentic in every way' Other hints/snippets/guesses:@dirtgame tweeting about WRC, Dakar and RX A short video posted by DiRT Art Director showing an innovative in-car camera view (video was later taken down)N4G page with DiRT news stories and hints Interesting gossip analysis by Rallycameraman 36 doughnuts must mean that DiRT devs are up to something Could this suggest that VW Polo WRC will be in the next game?
