Dirt 5 has been delayed until November

Codemasters has announced that Dirt 5 has been delayed again, and will now launch on November 6.

The game, which was previously delayed until mid-October, has been pushed back another few weeks and will now arrive in a similar window to the next-gen consoles.

"The revised launch date will allow Codemasters to release all versions of the game in a shorter timeframe, with the next generation of console launches expected for the holiday season," says the developer in a press release.

Neither Microsoft nor Sony have yet to announce solid launch plans for the Xbox Series X or the PlayStation 5, though the timing of the delay seems to imply the developer expects the new hardware to be available around that date.

If you purchase Dirt 5 on either PS4 or Xbox One, you will be upgraded to the next-gen version for free thanks to Microsoft's Smart Delivery tech for the Xbox Series X, and via a free upgrade on PlayStation 5.

Those who purchase the Amplified Edition will get early access to the game three days ahead of launch on November 3.
