DiRTy Gossip

Recommended Posts

It would gather some big attention at E3. Huge games have already been announced/detailed yesterday, so people will be getting excited to see what will come of today. They could be announcing both F1 and DiRT

The best prediction of how people behave in the future is how they behaved in the past.

Look at how the release process works for other games, and figure out why it works like this.

Add in the other facts you know, there are plenty sprinkled around.

Then think about E3. Is it the right place to launch a rally game ?

OK my guess.

CM might announce another game sometime after GA releaes, maybe within 1-2 months.
This game will probably be F1.
Then it will be time for the new Dirt, which will be announced maybe 1 month after F12014 has come out and might! arrive in time for Xmas.

Can't lose with this prediction. If I am wrong I get games I love earlier than I expected !
I also thought that we wouldn't hear anything about next DiRT until Autosport and F1 2014 are promoted and released, but the hints (which devs wanted us to see) suggest that something DiRTy may be released around the E3 time (this week!)

Even if it's just a statement of intent of making a rally game I'd welcome it. If it's a teaser trailer then YAY. If it's more then :D :D

Something may have changed with priorities at Codemasters and, like I suggested in one of my previous posts, they felt they need to show something next-gen now. E3 is so huge, gaming news are everywhere, so perhaps some announcements are less prominent than others and get drowned in the huge mash up of game news.
If Codies news were to do with next-gen racing technology, and if it looked/seemed better than Forza/Driveclub, then it would get a good level of attention.

It will be interesting to see whether Codies will release new info or not. 
Ehhhh enough of speculation...

It would probably depend on how far into development they are as well. If it is nearly finished then they need to announce it. I met Paul and Jon back in November at Wales Rally GB, and Paul said they had SOMETHING in development for just over a year. So another 8 months or so forward and that's nearly two years of development

I'm thinking of some sort of tech demo. some kind of next gen particle system for mud/gravel and MAYBE terrain deformation of some sort. That's the kind of stuff that would stand out from all other racing games at e3. Really announcing anything about the next DiRT game at E3 would draw a lot of attention.

DiRTi devs seem to be on a Twitter frenzy dropping hints left, right and centre! The hints are so subtle, that only overly optimistic and keen interpretations can spot them :P 

https://twitter.com/jontucker1/status/476465023246929920

Mr @JonTucker is in the city of angels. He's also on the mission. The DiRTi team are preparing for?
a) Codemasters 'media briefing'
b) behind closed doors demos for press or lucky and beautiful people
c) teaser trailer release
d) on the floor, public gameplay booths? Hmmm


@justbiglee dropped a rather obvious hint, perhaps too obvious... 
https://twitter.com/justbiglee/status/476441976322396160


@KickUp recording gameplay for a 'playback' demo?
https://twitter.com/Kick_Up/status/476469702836113408

There's so much hinting going on that it's hard to believe... 
Like I said before I really hope they're not being cruel to us... :)

My prediction: Codemasters will release a DiRT teaser trailer and will host some behind closed doors sessions with press for previews to come out in 2 months time


Less likely scenario: it seems the fashion in the industry these days is to have pre-alpha/beta access to games to help develop them and feel a part of it. The team seems to post quite a bit about PS4 so maybe an early access game on PS4 is in the works? I'd love such a concept, but Codies historically have never done this, so it's quite unlikely

Wow... Exciting :)

Saw this post earlier:

https://twitter.com/justbiglee/status/476501935458377728

Something happened Tuesday morning.  @MastaVonBlasta seems kind of early for a media presentation, unless that is how E3 works out.  This is just way to vague only for a time frame.  

Could there be a media embargo until the official surprise in the next couple of days?   

Trying to work this all out in Rally terms/procedures  

Either @MrHarveyParker holds secrets like a sieve or him and @justbiglee are playing good cop/bad cop.  So we don't know what the heck is right or wrong. 

If anything @MrHarveyParker is mentioning is even close, then DiRT4 will have some exciting NEW features.

One more thing... funny how Mr. ThierryNeuville has gone all silent after his visit to codies HQ, he has checked in the forums I see, but hasn't posted anything since June 2nd.    All I am saying is that NDA that code masters has you sign, involves surgery.. fingers, hands, or other 'bits' that you may get back if you don't talk before XX date.

This is too much. I keep hearing 'You know nothing MastaVonBlasta' in my head... 

I've had this suspicion that @justbiglee is not in LA after all... He's tweeting at 2am LA time, and considering there may be quite a bit of activity coming up he should be fast asleep :P Or maybe he's struggling with the jet lag...

Andy Gray used to be the PR and communications person at Codies for the DiRT series. Lee wishing he was still at Codies hopefully means that some 'communication' is imminent :P

One can also count on Mr Parker to go a step further:

That's exactly how I'm feeling now! :)

When there's an overflow of hinting you just don't know who to believe!

Two days ago @justbiglee wanted us to believe he's in LA, now he's posting pics from his desk playing Destiny... Tweets with 'how warm it is' and 'what time zone am I in' were purposefully deceiving! :D

I hope that the news will appear soon and I can breathe and think clearly again.. :P 
I still think @KickUp and @JonTucker are in LA and they're plotting something. Hopefully, we'll find out soon enough.

@ThierryNeuville did go quiet after his visit to Codies - he knows we'll disect his each post and he's worried he'll spill some beans :)

Usually DiRT announcements are on Mondays... I think we should wait for Codies Wekly Update! Maybe @justbiglee‌ will give us some Codies weather update?

Spot on, overly optimistic interpretations - I was thinking the same when I saw the tweets :)

Something just crossed my mind. Couple of months ago @JonTucker posted a tweet with VW Polo WRC and I felt at the time that the tweet was a subtle expression of joy at securing the Polo for the next game.

What if... and that's a big if, Codies secured the WRC licence and want to tell the world about it soon?  Then again Milestone announced their 2013 game in July last year. 

I quite like this tweet:

Something is brewing :) Despite @justbiglee 's desperate attempts to mislead us :P

It'd be lovely if they did get the WRC license, but Codemasters have always tended to so things more cost effectively, e.g. License the cars from WRC teams alone, then use real and imaginary locations. Plus I don't know how long Milestone have the WRC license for.

How about this for a hint?

https://twitter.com/dirtgame/status/476765436454141955

DiRT4 with FIA WRC license might be a possibility?
