Codemasters said today that the PC version of DiRT 2 will “support the wealth of new performance enhancing features that will be available in DirectX 11.”
In order to get the features in, however, the game needs to “benefit from an extended development program” and ship in December. Not September. As originally planned.
DX11 hardware is expected in the back half of the year. The upgrade will ship with Windows 7 and as a download for Vista.

Codemasters has posted up a DiRT2 teaser trailer on the game’s site: hit this.
You can’t see it if you’re in the US, apparently, probably because there’s video of a woman in a shower in it and America has a problem with the fact people have skin.
There’s no much by way of gameplay in there, but you will see some cars. It’s all you can hope for.
Take a look. The game’s out in September.
