I want another ERC location, the Barum Rally Zlín, it is just pure awesomeness, stupidly narrow roads with crap quality tarmac and tons of high speed corners, it's like that forest section of the german stages, only better

You and me both. ERC has the best tarmac rounds in rallying; Zlin, Ypres and the one I'm going to next week: Valais.

Those are all just mods, like how I put the Celica GT-Four from DiRT 3 into Dirt Rally, both in Rally and on Pikes Peak.

On a fundamental level, I don't think the goals of the WRC for games lines up with those of DiRT Rally.
WRC is on the decline. One of their goal for the WRC License in gaming is to attract new fans, being as accessible as possible to the largest audience possible. Its merchandise.
To them, there is no benefit in targeting the hardcore or simulation rally market because not only is it niché, but they are already fans of their series. So when devs pitch more realistic games, I can imagine this actually being a cause for concern.

I wouldn't like to see it become a yearly release, no way. But what about a one off wrc content release? All the current cars and teams. Once we have Sweden we will already have 5 out of 13 (14 including China next year) current wrc locations. So 8/9 more location following the same pattern of 2 long unique stages with variations. If 8/9 is too much then there could just be a limited selection of additional locations

It's never going to happen, but it would be pretty cool
We have 4 Wrc events and 1 ERC since acropolis isnt a wrc event actually
Wales
monte carlo
finland
germany
and Sweden to come, so 5 plus Greece as a former wrc event and current erc

Not to worry ;)

So, we will be getting at least one more 1.6litre, either the polo, ds3 or i20 then?

My bet is i20 ( not my fav, for me is the worst and ugliest of the actual wrc) because of maybe kevin abbring who visited codies hq influenced hyundai to lend the license to codies, but just imagination

most of the wrc games have suffered same mistakes since launch lol. that alone proves they dont know what they doing . i played 1-4 all same issues.

dodge charger in rally would be terrible :D
Well, there's two sets.

You have the original WRC fivesome by Evolution Studios and all for the Playstation 2
World Rally Champsionship - 2001 and my first PS2 game along with Devil May Cry
WRC II Extreme
WRC 3
WRC 4
WRC: Rally Evolved.

These were pretty well regarded.

Then you have the Milestone tetralogy, which is more correctly called "WRC: FIA World Rally Championship", "WRC 2: FIA World Rally Championship", etc
Losing the WRC license, they are now making Seb Loeb Rally Evo, which will be build around the same tech.

WRC 5: FIA World Rally Championship is the first by Kylotonn, so although it's continuing the naming/numbering, it's got nothing at all to do with the previous 4 games, and so has its own host of new issues.

The tweet doesnt close the door for 2014 or previous WRC,only the current season car is out of reach so lets be positive and hope for the best.The best for me would be:                                                                           1)Mini changed from proto to 2011 spec(same 3d as rx car)
2)Fiesta mirrors changed from early spec to the later steady ones plus antennas.
3)A DS3 from 2013 or before.
4)i20 is getting obsolete very soon so it should not be impossible to get it.

Not the biggest fan of the 1.6L WRC cars. Feels like my bike has more power than those. 
Yet they continue to break stage records... and in 2017 they will be running 380 BHP!
All that means you'll be running even more turbo-centric power output... Maybe at least they'll start looking better with additional aero upgrades :P

So what, they still look and sound rubbish. :P
LOL xD Well, Fiesta doesn't look that bad though (then again not as good as Focus).

I actually really like the look of the Fiesta and the Polo. The DS3 is a bit tame looking, but once it gets a wider track and more aer that should improve things (assuming Citroen are still in the WRC at that point of course).

The sound is a fair point. Still, the Countryman sounded great (even if it did look awful), so it is possible for the 1.6T to make a good noise!

No you're not alone Mike, I love 'em! Can't wait for Rally GB!
Ohhhh goodness, it's almost time for an early, misty start to freeze my bollocks off in a forest. It's by far my favourite weekend of the year! 

I'm really tempted, just don't know whether I can justify the money being a student. Just about to start a dissertation plus another huge project as well, so I will probably have to put it off this year. The last two years I've had guest passes due to my brother and dad competing in the nationals!

Come to think of it, if Codies can't get the Fiesta RS WRC, why not try the R5+?

I think its not the WRC part which is the problem, it's the newer shape Fiesta that they can't license (correct me if I'm wrong)

@AstroMotorsport No its the 2015 WRC car that we couldn't get - we have the 2015 Rallycross Fiesta

— Paul Coleman (@Kick_Up) October 20, 2015

Paul has clarified already. If the problem was the 2015 shape, specifically, they wouldn't have the Rallycross Fiesta.

Also, Paul's favorite car from the new pack is:

@Job3kkk the red one

My guess is that we will be able to have the new generation I20 in prototype form. And the car looks bullocks. I personally also prefer the 1.6L cars over the 2.0L, specially the latter ones. C-segment cars were too big already to look muscular in race specs. This little things looks like they swallow a hole lot of steroids down with racing fuel. Simple crazy. And they sound better as well, at least for my taste.

The red one could be a 206/307 total to add to 2000 class, my bet is 307 to match more the 07' focus of Steve perez and because of periodic table

Looooooong long time ago, in the early days of the Gossip thread I posted a link to Jon Tucker's tweet. It showed the VW Polo WRC and said 'Braking news...'.

It was a long while ago, things may have changed, but I'm still hoping the VW Polo will be a part of the Modern Masters pack :)

But you can get a lot better noise from a 2.0L and bigger. Friggin greenpeace taking away our orchestry xD
I personally don't agree with this statement: the displacement of the engine isn't really relevant when it comes to engine note or volume. 

Rallycross Supercars are all still 2.0L and, for the most part, the basic engine notes are fairly indistinct from each other as they are all inline four cylinder engines. There are a handful of exceptions, but it is only the exhaust configuration and mapping of certain cars that gives them a distinct noise (Solberg's DS3 is foremost in my mind with that statement). 

The Delta S4 is a 1.7L and that sounds savage: that's nothing to do with engine displacement, but down to the forced induction setup. 

The current WRCars are relatively limited in terms of engine configuration, that is really the biggest flaw of the current rule set. The 2.0L era did allow some different engine types (such as Subaru's flat four) which will of course produce very different soundtracks. Having said that, the sound of a 1.6L car screaming through the trees has - like a lot of aspects of the 1.6L WRCars - slowly won me over. I personally think they are lot more spectacular to watch on the limit than the last of the 2.0L cars.

Everyone here keeps bashing WRC5, but the stages themselves in that game aren't half bad.

tbh, they're almost as good as DiRT3's Trailblazer sta- oh, wait... wrong discipline.

Ignore what's written above. WRC5 is a TOO WIDEARCADE POPCORN FAKE RALLY GAME with UNREALISTIC ARCADE PHYSICS and BAD GRAPHICS AND SOUND only for POPCORN PLAYERS!!!

Okay, you may now return to DiRT Rally.

Apparently, the issue of the 2015 Fiesta WRC was already discussed before EA even began. Because, according to Paul, they asked Ford if they could have the 2015 WRC model and they said no, so they asked for the previous one and that's what we got. In other words, if the 2015 Fiesta WRC was accepted, we would have had it in-game from the beginning of EA, instead of the one we have now.
