While Codemasters works away on DiRT 5, the developer has acquired the rights to make games using the FIA World Rally Championship license. To date, Milestone and Kylotonn Games have handled development on the WRC series, with the latter set to release WRC 9 this September.

The new five-year deal will allow Codemasters to release WRC titles for console, PC and mobile, with annual entries that will run from 2023 to 2027. The UK studio will also handle WRC eSports tournaments, while remaining committed to the DiRT series, the next of which is due this October.

"The DiRT Rally team is already working on their next project ahead of the WRC agreement in 2023,' Codemasters told GamesIndustry.biz, with the first Codies WRC game to land during its financial year ending March 2024. The WRC license will be joining Codemasters' official F1 license, with F1 2020 coming in July.
