When it’s ready, we’ll announce more details 🙂 

 

Also it could be worse; where I’m from (Ireland) summer doesn’t exist 😉

Jon Armstrong, the resident rally driver, posted a couple of stories on Instagram. One of them showed Oculus and the other one a DR 2.0 sim and filming setup. That could mean something 😊

PS: here in Atlanta, USA, summer lasts from April to September so still a couple of months for Codies to bring VR 😛

Good find, thanks. Same studio that did the Dirt Rally VR port for Oculus, so that's encouraging, but some of the wording gives me pause for concern...

Climax took the premier driving title Dirt Rally 2 and gave it a new dimension in VR to really draw the player into the action. The primary goal was to keep the experience as exciting as the original whilst making sure it was also comfortable for the player as they race around the tracks.

We worked closely with the publisher to keep the features from the original and add fully immersive rallying on iconic real life tracks with you literally in the driving seat of some of the most power off-road rally cars of today, and in historic classics.

  • Keep the experience as exciting as the original?
  • Keep the features from the original?
  • Port?

Maybe I'm reading too much into this given how cheesy, overly verbose and poorly structured those sentences are, but I had until this point assumed VR was being added as a feature of DR2 not being completely ported. What I want is VR as it is in Dirt Rally 1.0 - I sure hope they deliver.

BTW it seems HTC Vive support is also being added, which is nice. The share links at the bottom of the Climax page contain these urls:

I don't think that is a typo.

Half year after release, we received the answer for your question.

And a half year after release I received also answer for my question. 

"There are no plans to add PSVR support to DiRT Rally 2.0."
