The publisher confirmed on Monday that the current-gen and PC versions of the racer had slipped from October 16 to November 6.
Last month Codemasters delayed Dirt 5’s release by a week, from October 9 to 16.
Frank Sagnier, Chief Executive at Codemasters, said of the latest delay: “Dirt 5 has received widespread critical acclaim, culminating with the game receiving the gamescom 2020 Best Racing Game Award on 30 August.
“The revised launch date will allow us to take advantage of the next generation console launches which are expected in time for the holiday season.”
Dirt 5 was unveiled with an Xbox Series X reveal trailer in May. The game will support Microsoft’s Smart Delivery scheme, which lets players buy a title once and play it across multiple Xbox generations.
The game’s career mode features Troy Baker and Nolan North and lets players choose the events they want to play, with the goal of earning enough Stamps to qualify for Main Events that unlock subsequent chapters.
