Speaking seriously i dont want to see infection and cat n mouse modes in any Dirt game by CM , that modes are for pure arcade games like Forza horizon , Gravel  On rush etc
I bet you're a blast at parties.
What do you mean?
I don’t see the problem in having a fun game mode in a serious racing sim. Allows for a bit of a distraction from endless racing, and it keeps players coming back. If you looked at dirt 3, the party modes were the longest surviving online lobbies, same with demo derby on grid

I generally agree with you , Grid 1 demo derby was my favorite mode ever i can say in a racing game but i can not put in in same class with infected car and cat n mouse of Dirt 3 as demo derby exists in real life..
Also i have Dirt 3 and i agree that the most busy lobbies are those of party modes like infected car etc..
I have Forza 7 also and there is infected car mode like in Dirt 3 , its funny enough and i can say that even in such arcade mode i prefer the handling and physics (like in forza 7)  to be semi-sim than completely arcade..
I am not opposed to arcade modes in semi-sim / sim game if devs will not replace  any pure rally content with it(if we speak about Dirt series)
For example Forza 7 has so much content , 700 cars , 31 locations with many layouts each , endless customizations etc , the party mode is about the 5% of whole game content or even less..
But look at the Dirt 3! There are so few locations for pure rally mode , few for RX as well.. Is well known that CM games have poor content .So if means that having party modes there will be 5 rally locations , 3-4 RX tracks and some party mode content and if there is not party modes means that the game will have 7 rally locations and 5-6 RX tracks i would say "NO" to partry mode addition..
For me the ideal next Dirt would be something very close to Dirt Rally with more content ,official rally tracks , i can live without hill climb and i would prefer and RX mode closer to Dirt 3 , longer tracks , no joker lap ,not on rails driving feeling, i dont care for offcial content about RX , and good online mode for rally (missing feature in Dirt rally)

But if you wanted a more realistic experience, why would you get rid of what makes rallycross, rallycross?
Just i dont like a lot the short tracks and official content.. I prefer more variety about enviroments like snow , impressive stadiums , monaco location (Dirt 2 - Dirt 3) ..Offiical ones are a bit boring to me..And also more cars and many classics between them..

The future of DiRT

We’ll be back here in the coming weeks for a more candid Road Book on what’s going on here at DiRT HQ, and where we go from here. We’ve seen every comment – good and bad – and we’re making sure that whatever happens next has those considerations in mind. For now though, we want you to enjoy Clubs in all of its glory – let us know what you think!

I can see where you are coming from. I love the official calendar and cars of World RX so I am hoping that the next game features all the cars and tracks from RX. But that shouldn't stop CM from putting in the other tracks like in D3 and D2. I have seen games before make separate sections that through back to previous titles.

So you want a sim, but you want to axe real-life content in favour of spectacular fantasy tracks? Horses for courses, but be aware you're asking for the same mix of realistic/fun as people who want Infected mode in a sim.

And anyway, who says there can't be snow in rallycross?

Yeah i just said my preferences... Yes i want a game with Dirt rally real rally stages and RX tracks like those of Dirt 2 and Dirt 3 with Dirt rally physics  , and not that on rail sense of Dirt rally - Dirt 4 RX mode..

That looks like some monte carlo hairpins to me, very unlike sweden!
@Fedemaisonnave it was talk about already back in may 2017.. the layout is really looking like Monte Carlo.. and that was in time ( two or three weeks before realease of Dirt4 video)..
Check Monte Carlo dirt rally stages, it isn't part of it

I've tried to compare the image on the screen to these satellitar images of the stages of DiRT Rally and Route de Turini - Descente is quite similar to that stage but I can't tell if they really are the same
This is a complete guide with all stages from DiRT Rally and relative aerial photos

I can't find a match on any DiRT Rally stage. It's a new section of road. Could it be a Your Stage creation?

Don't think so. We know YS has difficulties crafting a road in a mountainous environment and this is why generally DiRT 4 stages don't have many tight corners/hairpins. That stage looks to have at least three hairpins and possibly in a sequence and that's not something the version of Your Stage we have could possibly craft, also because there seems to be mountains in the region judging by the shadows

I'm actually on a hunt now to try and figure out where that terrain scan is from. It's a challenge. I've been trying Sanremo, New Zealand, Argentina, Japan to try and spot a mountainous region like that. No avail, so far.

EDIT: It could also be a completely original environment, only loosely based on a real place, perhaps.

Maybe any Dirt 4 monte carlo location as DLC.??

Me watching the DiRTy Gossip thread, waiting to see what happens next.
ahaha I love spongbob i think it would be a good idea CM to get license and create a cartoony kart racing game like F1 stars etc..SpongBob and his company is beloved and it could attract many customers..

I imagine these were some of the tests they did with Your Stage on mountains, on which they eventually decided it wasnt good enough.

That makes sense. At 0:25 in this trailer for DiRT 4
https://youtu.be/uPGxOIXSAG4
there is a stage in Sweden running between two mountain lines, and that's impossible to see in the finished game. I think Paul said it was some testing with different parameters for Your Stage but it didn't work well enough

Whatever happens next, I hope that if they keep the WRX license we get all the tracks this time. COTA probably wouldn't even be that hard to implement, they already have it modeled for Grid Autorsport.

That would depend on if they want to update it. Not sure how good it is in Autosport. If they decide to update it, it would require a fair amount of work.

Also COTA from F1. They also have hockenheim from grid (although I have a feeling it’s not a round this year), plus Barcelona from f1
Barcellona, Hockenheim and COTA all have to be present in F1 2018 so they already have the environments, but you're right, Germany is hosted in Estering this year. But the new WRX circuit is in Silverstone which is already included in F1 games

I have a feeling there's a chance something will be announced on the DiRT Grand Final. I don't think it'll be DLC though. I don't think DLC, after the game's been mostly abandoned, for quite a while, will sit too well.

The German round has always been at the Estering, Hockenheim was another round and it's been removed to make room for the USA round this year.

I still have my hopes up that the Polo R5 means Skoda will move from R5 into WRC in 2019. Seems like a stupid move for two VAG brands going head to head in the same class.

Seems to work for VAG, think it lets them corner the market and know that spectators are always drawn to watching series with multiple brands involved.

GT3: Lamborghini, Porsche, Bentley, Audi
TCR: Audi, VW, Seat

Even P1 they were happily racing Porsche v Audi, with the competition benefitting both (because more eyeballs), which was only stopped prematurely by dieselgate...

I don't see two R5s being a massive stretch.

After quite a lot of radio silence, today the official WRC Games account answered to two tweets asking about WRC 8 with these

https://twitter.com/wrcthegame/status/995967934085451776?s=20
https://twitter.com/wrcthegame/status/995968115719704576?s=20

It isn't much but it shows at least that there is something to say. And it may be approaching. Analysing the tweet doesn't seem worth it though, it looks like a very standard pre written response while they wait for the time to come

WRC 6 and 7 were both announced this month, with release in Autumn. I think if late May, or early June, come and we still hear nothing, we may have to, more heavily, entertain the idea that a game might not be coming this year.

My biggest bet is the DiRT World Championships Grand Final, for a Codemasters announcement (if they are in charge).

We are into solid territory now for the announcement of .... something ?!

i) 1 year ago almost to the day WRC7 was announced.
ii) Big Bens Finance report I think end May.
iii) Big Ben stand at E3.
iv) E3 mid June.

Problem is that if there is going to be some sort of announcement by Codies that will make them awfully busy. Got Onrush release, F1 2018 and maybe XXX to announce all within a few weeks ? Time for the pro plus or expresso from hell.
