During an interview with EDGE magazine, vice president of Codemasters Studios, Gavin Cheshire, has clearly indicated that a third iteration of the license for Colin McRae: Dirt is being prepared.
The officer there said in effect that "great things will happen [the studio] from Birmingham, who went on DiRT 3", indicating that this episode could be designed with a mind more British than its predecessor: DiRT 2 is a brilliant game but very American in its approach, perhaps are a little too much on this side. We should perhaps show a little more than our colors. Given the liabilities of the series, we can expect a development on multiple platforms, but it will probably be an official announcement from Codemasters to see the console and the output period covered.
Cheshire wasn’t quizzed on details, platforms or dates, but he did mention that DiRT 3 may be a more British proposition than DiRT 2.
"I guess in today’s world, every day you’re dealing with people from all over the world. So it’s a British company and the last bastion of British publishing, and there is some pride in that, but it doesn’t take control of your life.
"It’s about the culture we’ve created and making the best games you can. DiRT 2: brilliant game but it’s all American accents, so maybe we’re a little over the top with those. Maybe we should fly the flag a bit more," he said.
