Codies plan new Colin McRae game for 2009

DiRT 2 confirmed

The Colin McRae series will be making something of a return in 2009 - Codemasters confirming that they have reached a deal with McRae's family affirming they will create a new DiRT title as tribute to the acclaimed driver, who died in a helicopter crash last year.

"He could do things with a car that no one else would and that's where we're taking the series with new events at the extreme edge of rally and autosport. It will be a great tribute to an incredible champion," offers senior producer Gavin Raeburn.

Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will be released for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 - with titles also on the way for the PSP, Wii and DS.

Many of the cars from the first DiRT will be carried over, and we're promised next-gen technology that will really push handling, graphics and physics.

Various modes are on offer and we're more than a little excited by this prospect.
