    Coming to think of it, a game centred around Extreme E does make sense given the lightning bolt hint and the promise of "something different".

    If I'm honest, it doesn't sound as exciting as the prospect of a mainline DiRT game or Showdown successor, but I'm happy to be proven wrong.

    Could they maybe just be starting afresh with the branding, and the next title is just "Dirt". That would be consistent with Grid.

    I just hope its not as bland as 4, it seemed like 4 didn't know what it wanted to be. Otherwise even if its a showdown ill still get it.

    That's what I was thinking. I find Showdown to be like MW2012 in that I did end up enjoying it. It's just seen as the red-headed stepchild of the DiRT series.

    I want the next Dirt title to come bundled with Rallycross just like Dirt 2.0. It wasn't something that I was very interested in beforehand but it got me hooked and it is a part of the game that I thoroughly enjoy.

    Its likely codies will be doing a remix of all their gaming assets in a quick to develop/to market game. They do the same quick turnaround with F1 so I think showdown 2 is a good shout maybe borrowing from f1, grid and dirt in equal measure, no doubte re-using lots of tracks and car models along the way. The lightning bolt is an interesting part of the tweet cant see electric cars in a dirt game, but maybe remote control cars lol might be a bit of a reach there...

    My bet is Dirt 5 with unique features.

    Think about the my course (course maker) feature as a headliner in Dirt 4. Dirt 5 will have another headliner feature but no idea what kind of it exactly at the moment.

    Just now Dirt 2.0 has just started updating to 1.24 and the download is 12.2gb seems like there might be some new content in something that size?

    Maybe just fixes?, the game installs new content even if you dont have access to it though, ive seen this each season update. Its a slim possibility but maybe season 5 / showdown 2 has just pre-installed I sure hope so, it might be subsequently be behind a paywall... There's no patch notes yet just a cryptic tweet to go off of.

    Patch notes are in the General Discussion thread ^^

    Re the new Dirt - that's a lightning bolt is it? That flew right past me... :O

    I reckon this will be out later in the year on the old consoles. Not sure what it is though.

    I want something similar to the original Dirt, a more arcade and open-ended title with a lot of various offroad categories to choose from.

    I loved the rally raid vehicles in the first 3 dirt games, would be great to see them back (we were supposedly getting a new Dakar game this year too).

    If we're wishlisting I would like the full World Rallycross Championship (Timerzyanov is my favourite driver so his car and Spa would be nice) and any DLC to be new, Scotland was great and fully worth paying for, re-releases from older games were not.

    The teaser Image looks as if we'll get Dirt HEAT!

    DiRT Showdown was a fun game even though a lot of people hated it.

    Most of those people never actually played it.

    I'd love a return to Dirt 2 or 3's focus on multi-discipline and especially the gymkhana stuff as that was my favourite bit of Dirt 3. Dirt 4 just didn't fill that need and still felt too sterile, much like the Dirt Rally games. Now, I'm fine with the dull presentation of DR1 and 2, but I also feel like not every game needs to be a hardcore sim and would appreciate a more light-hearted, arcade experience.

    It's interesting you bring up how the series has become sterile because I think that has been an issue with the DiRT series and GRID series in recent years. For some reason, the games released this generation lack the character and structured progression games had from the previous gen. I get that realism has its appeal, but I do miss games with a lively atmosphere, cheesy voice-overs and soundtracks with licensed music.

    Despite its poor sales, OnRush brought some much-needed arcade thrills this generation so hopefully the upcoming title builds on this.
