Codemasters: ‘DiRT 3 Well Under Way’
Codemasters is currently gearing up to release a PS3 platinum edition of Colin McRae DiRT 2 after the critically acclaimed title shifted 1.7 million units since September. Ahead of the June 9 re-release, the developer revealed it is currently working on the sequel.
Codemasters brand manager Edward Newby-Robson revealed to MCV that, "The racing studio is already well underway with the next project and continues to develop the EGO engine and push in-house technology to bring new consumer benefits. Some features which have as yet not been seen in a Codemasters Rally Studio game will make a welcome return and, of course, it wouldn’t be a Codies game without some new surprises. The nature of a unified engine means features developed for one franchise will benefit others, so you’ll be seeing the dynamic effects in Formula One 2010 in future racing titles."
