Petter Solberg will show off his 2014 car and judging by teasers it will have a black/red/gold livery. I actually loved his bare black carbon fibre with stickers approach from 2013.
I saw the teaser picture of his 2014 car and was actually a bit disappointed. His 2013 car was easily my fave livery in the rallycross paddock last year, I was hoping it would be back for 2014!

It went awfully quiet on the DiRTi Gossip front...

I guess Codies are busy cooking up the GRID PR storm for tomorrow 22/414.

Perhaps we'll find out the release date of the next GRID game tomorrow. That date being in 2014 pretty much means that DiRT is unlikely to come out this year, due to over-crowding of Codies racing game market.

There's also a big World RX media event in Italy later this week. I think there'll be plenty of great news, but a tie-up with Codemasters is unlikely to be announced... (prove me wrong please!)

So with GRID: Autosport being released in late June, it still leaves plenty of hope for a DiRT3 successor to be announced (and released) in 2014. I just hope that unlike GRID it'll be available for next gen too.

Autosport, DiRT 4 and a new F1 by years ends.. that would be epic.
I am both holding my breath and rolling my pennies.
I am serious, I am holding my breath right now!................ Look at me codies.. I am doing it...  Holding my breath until the new DiRT is announced...  I'm turning red... I'll do it.
Ah.. nevermind I'll just wait patiently and stay tuned to the forum.

@Tark9m when i first glimpsed at your post , I thought it said "I am holding my breathe and rolling my penis"

It says the PEN IS MIGHTIER than the sword.  The spaces in there are kind of important.

I was hopeful for this year but would have expected the teasers to have started in earnest by now and, with GRID and F1 2014 in the pipeline for this year, it seems unlikely that the other big Codies series will also get a game in 2014.

It's also worth noting that following the very well received D3 playtest Codies have done something for similar for quite a few of their more recent titles. The D3 playtest was only 3 months ahead of the release so I won't be getting to excited just yet - at some point, Paul, Lee and JT are going to have to start ramping things up on Twitter. Then it will be time! :)

For those who missed it, this went on earlier today in the forums:
We won't hear anything until 2015 now because of the announcement of Grid Autosport.
... don't be so sure.

I was very hopeful when I saw that it was only two months until GRID's release, meaning that there is still plenty of time for a DiRT announcement this year!
In my view the release in June means that DiRT is unlikely to release in 2014..
I suspect that Codemasters do not expect their core player base and newcomers to buy more than two titles, even if they are 3 months apart.

On a more positive note I think that once GRID Autosport releases in June the development team would be moved onto the next DiRT. Seemingly a smaller team has been working on the rally game for some time, but with a significant expansion in team size development would accelerate (more stages please! :) ) and maybe we'll be looking at March-May 2015 release. 

(I'm enjoying making up these theories and gossip - we have no idea what we're talking about! :D :D That's why it's quite fun... :) )


The World RX event in Italy so far did not produce a game licence announcement... However, Mattias Ekstrom and Pontus Tidemand announced that they will compete in selected round in 2014 using an Audi A1 supercar:

Petter Solberg RX team showed their livery and I have to say I'm not a fan... :(

Quiet on the DiRTy gossip front I'm afraid.

With the release of GRID Autosport blog entries and Codies communications will be focused on releasing more info about the next game.

I'll be on the lookout for hints in tweets and interviews, but like I said in previous posts here's how I read the situation:

April - June - PR offensive for GRID Autosport
July - September - announcement and PR offensive for next-gen (current-gen by then?) F1 2014
October 2014 - F1 2014 release
November - December 2014 - hopefully time for next DiRT game announcement
some time in 2015 - next DiRT game release

Not sure we can afford that licence, he's a big name superstar now.

@justbiglee Hahaha! That's okay, but I think you should still consider it.

PS. does anyone know why the Easter Holidays were a week early in London compared to the rest of UK (or at least England)?
Not that it's a bad thing. I did get 2 extra days off College thanks to that...


PSS, can someone tell me what PS actually stands for?

Post Scriptum, I think. 


@docmartin, thanks. Somehow that reply reminded me that I have access to Google and you add indeed course, PS does stand for post script. I think. Thank you vw much for actually responding and not just asking why I didn't just Google it earlier.................................................. Now all that's left is to find out why Easter hols were early .............................................................. PS, still waiting on a fix for mobile forum formatting and paragraph spacing, @justbiglee. I hope u can find the time to do it soon!

So another week bites the dust :) Time for more overly hopeful analysis of dev tweets :)

Courtesy of @JonTucker we have:

and

The way I read the above is that perhaps a new tyre/surface model was tried last week and maybe it turned out rather well :)

In case you haven't read Handling Chronicles from GRID last week the tyre model is absolutely key to how handling feels in the game and any improvements are good news!
Hopefully the DiRTi team is taking note of how the development is progressing to give us some insight once the game is announced

@rallycameraman I think Grid Autosport has sucked the wind out of DiRT for a little while
No we're still going, its been one of those weeks where there is a lot of the behind scenes stuff going on and its taken up so much of my time I haven't been able to do the kind of stuff I normally do.

Don't worry I'll get back to teasing you soon.

Nice one @gfRally to get some attention from the Codies ;D

Just as @KickUp is saying there won't be much publicity for a rally game until Autosport comes out, but it seems the DiRTi team is hard at work :)

Let me read too much into more tweets :)

Here we have @justbiglee mentioning a podcast in planning stages, one can presume it will be DiRT related
https://twitter.com/justbiglee/status/463786731787923456

Mr @justbiglee has also updated his Twitter page cover/background to what I'm pretty sure is a photo of the rallycross track in Hell in Norway. Hint anyone?

Okay so this may be a bit far fetched but still likely: yesterday I have kindly asked for some bean spilling on the next DiRT game and @JonTucker accused Art Director Harvey Parker of being guilty of bean spillage in the past.

Harvey Parker as a reply posted a cool looking photo from Bombay (Mumbai?):
https://twitter.com/MrHarveyParker/status/463793710090575874

So from what I know Mumbai based Reliance Entertainment has a majority stake in Codemasters. Perhaps Harvey was showing off the advances in game art and technology to company owners to give them a taste of what is to come. 
Another explanation is that Harvey was on holiday in Mumbai.

@mastonvonblasta (cool name BTW) I was really just thinking the media stuff as @kickup said, didn't think DiRT team was taken away to support GRID, I am sure this happens to some degree at crunch time, but I did stir the pot a little  >:) not on purpose of course, or was it?  

Gee this post is almost as general and vague as a @biglee post (kidding)   :P

Oh yeah, also @mastavonblasta, interesting theory, ever make it a hobby to figure out the Kennedy assassination?

Good spot: definately looks like turns 1 and 2 of the Hell track! Got my fingers crossed this is a hint of whats to come.
Is Hell the track with the big blind jump on it? If so, that would be one cool track to race on.

Höljesbanan has a couple of blind crest/jumps at corners :)
