Is there a release date for Dirt Rally 2?

I bought Dirt Rally Legend edition but it was the Dutch text cover version, so played it a while then returned it to amazon for a refund so I can buy the English language text version.

Thinking maybe I should just wait it out until Dirt Rally 2 is out. But I think I only scratched the surface of Dirt Rally, my progress was as follows;

Just started Elite championship Rally

Hardly touched Rally X so the FIA had just opened and I hadn't even bought a Rally X car for it yet.

Not touched Pikes Peak.

Level 78 team.

36% trophies if that's anything to go by.

Should I buy it again and progress further?

If you liked it, you should buy it. If not, you should still buy it, because it's still a great game.
Of course, the choice is yours, but only as long as it's a yes.

More seriously, there is no release date for DiRT Rally2 (or even confirmation of its existence). As for repurchasing DiRT Rally, I'd recommend it but ultimately it's your money and your choice: you should only really buy a game if you want to play it. Though, of course, you knew that already.
If you want to but don't want to pay full price, you could always wait for a sale, but again, it's up to you, as you already know.

That milestone...

I think they've simply got their next project approved and managed to get a proper, full blown budget, coded a proper new-gen engine or a new iteration of Ego that's much better than the old one and able to incorporate many more features, and got a 'base' ready for the next game - basically a working game but with little to no content as of yet - and have reference and research material and are basically ready to make the next title.

Or maybe they've already reached the testing phase (doubtful, though they are prepping for a community test session, but that's probably for a VERY early version of the game, as it was with DiRT Rally back before they'd even named it...)

Or maybe they've secured some previously impossible licenses,

Or maybe... they've finally got something capable of properly doing the Safari Rally!

The possibilities really are endless. All that's certain is that it's NOT DLC for what is essentially an experimental project to prove a point to the men in the suits and to test the waters.

Probably not that because they said a good while ago that they had something, that already made DR feel old. The testing could be more plausible

Lol cool I'll probably buy another one. Wouldn't mind if a steelbook pops up for sale!

I'd reckon a sequel is probably at least 2 years off, even if it does get announced soon, so if you enjoyed the current game you should probably grab another copy to tide you over for a while.

I want bring up a comment here that was in the desktop wallpaper thread.  There was a little discussion about the wheels on the Escort MK2.  I guess this is because its modeled off of Colin's car (it is), but here is my suggestion, why not have both the 13in wheel version and the McRae version.  Sure there is more to it than the graphics, but I would like to have some of these lesser variants in the game sometime.  I am sure it comes down the the L word so right now I am just talking our my butt...  Thats quite a site, and I had beans for lunch... :neutral:

L word?   Hmmm... I can only think of Lunch, Lucky, Lazy... Lurch... my sisters name... my aunts name...limerick?
I googled words that start with L, and it came up with limnic. Which is interesting. And Firefox wants to correct that to limn, which means something completely different. Darn you GF! I wasn't looking for a vocabulary lesson... How deep does this go? You've now provided me with at least an hour of entertainment.

This is easily the most confusing dictionary definition of a word I've ever seen.
Lexemes : a basic lexical unit of a language, consisting of one word or several words, considered as an abstract unit, and applied to a family of words related by form or meaning.

Unfortunately no real fun words.

Hmm. Saw about 3 minutes of InsaneGaz livestreaming and he said it doesn't allow full screen.

However, since our own resident @enamel has it, I can just ask him for the port report. Can I do triple screen? With the Horizon series I'm okay using a controller since my wheels a Fanatec. FH also does a great job of making every car feel unique, and about like you'd expect, while still simplifying it a bit.
What hardware do you have? I'm only running a 960 right now... think it'll handle it well?
Sorry @JZStudios been busy and just saw this. I am not sure about the triple screens, I am running an i5-6600K @4.2GHz, and a 980ti on a 1440p display. With that setup on the "high" preset (dynamic optimization off) I am just barely able to keep 60FPS in the city, which is the most demanding part of the game.

So triples on a 960 might push it a bit, but you might be able to make it work, I hear turning off MSAA helps a lot for performance. There will probably be a demo out soon, so I would recommend waiting for that if you are more patient than me.

Yeah, according to Digital Foundry it basically requires some real high end hardware. MSAA is apparently a hell of a killer too.
And according to PRC it has some sort of DRM that's very CPU intensive and runs the entire time your playing. I was real excited for this, but seems like MS is failing at this whole store gamefront UWP thing.

you want atleast a 980ti/1070gtx or 1080 gtx.

tbh going with a 980ti now would be silly unless its cheap as nvidia often make newer driver perform worse as time goes by on old cards.so you upgrade or have to because newer games want newer drivers.

shame as the performance is literally the same between a 980ti and a 1070.

So better to wait a year to upgrade for a faster 10XX card?

I honestly love how misinformed your are on the subject of GPU performance. Here, have a nice video demonstrating that 1070 is faster than Titan X, let alone 980Ti ;)

If you're willing to wait a year, then you'll be looking at maybe even 11XX series of cards from nVidia, as they plan to have a new GPU released on every year on a special event of sorts. So either upgrade to 1080/1070 today... or wait a year for 11XX series. That's the gist of it. Your wallet most likely will be the main deciding factor I believe.

I have a 960, so it's worth it for me, but for you... yeah. Should probably hold off. The 1080ti should be dropping soon if you're one of those guys that likes to spend $600 every year.
However, I've also heard news that CPU's are bottlenecking the GPU so we'll have to see where that goes. I'm still waiting to see what AMD's Zen id going to be like.

The fact that the 1070 stock runs the Witcher 3 at 1440 at 70 FPS makes me ashamed of my 960 a little. I'm only running on medium/high at 1080 and still getting about 50. 1070 should do my triple screens pretty well though.

And a new GPU Architecture every 2 years.
