DiRT Rally 2.0 Won’t Support VR (At Least At Launch)

DiRT Rally 2.0 17 October 4, 2018 by

If you’re hoping the upcoming release of DiRT Rally 2.0 will build on the VR experience of the original, we’ve got bad news for you.

Codemasters’ hardcore rally racing sequel won’t support VR on any platform when it launches February 26, 2019. While that may be a bitter pill for headset enthusiasts to swallow, there’s still hope for the feature post-launch.

Speaking with USGamer, community manager Christina McGrath kept the door open for VR. “We’re focusing on making the core game experience before launch,” said McGrath, “and after that, if there is demand from our community, then we’ll explore the possibility.”

There is form here. The original DiRT Rally received a VR upgrade (via paid DLC on PC and PS4) over a year after the game’s launch.

VR itself is still quite a niche aspect of gaming, and racing in particular. Sony just recently celebrated three million sales of its PS VR, which translates to less than 1/20 of the PS4s out there.
