Yes, rallycross in D4 was by far the best feature of the game (which may not be saying much, but I did enjoy it).

My own view is that they should have done a SuperMod class where you could modify and rebuild a production car, put in upgraded engines, transmission, suspension etc. That would have added to the creative aspects of the game - anyone for a Chris Evans' Micra?

I would also think the licensing is due to Milestone producing a garbage WRC game just about every year just like Codies do with f1, its probably contractual, I personally don't see why Codies can not do something, but I guess legal would have something to say.

Yes I don't understand how anyone including the WRC can copyright or licence the likeness of public roads but I guess Codies need the FIA on side due to the lucrative F1 licence. I suppose the WRC class is covered by a licence- hence no current gen world rally cars.

Perhaps someone should just do a really good group B sim with proper physics instead - a sort of GPL for rally fans. The Group Bs in current sims aren't great and don't capture the quirks of individual models. I would prefer that to the current crop of cars anyday.

Codies i am sure do not ahve a WRC licence, that is already used by someone else, hence the issues with using stages from existing events.

If you were Milestone even though you routinely produce rot, you would not want someone else being able to use the titling, cars and countries you had purchased.

Codies will never make this a yearly thing, it is cyclical, DR was a taster, the cars in the notes are the same juts about, with a few extras. Most of the old cars from DR are still there

Milestone last made an official WRC game in 2013. Since 2015, WRC games are made by Kylotonn.

Yep, that was a Milestone game.

I have been tempted to buy WRC7 a few times as I have been told it is an improvement on the previous games. With DR2 out in less than a month though I'll probably just hang on for that now.

Agreed

The only bit I could do without is the rallycross segment, not because of any hatred I have of WRX, but because I would rather have some more stages and cars for the real stuff rather than a thing that is there to appease IMG's marketing team and to make online play possible.

but you can't have everything.

Not tried the newer WRC games, but they don't get good reviews

Rallycross is somewhat of a distraction. Even if I enjoyed playing it in DR and D4, I still get the sensation that their games could be better as a whole if it just had a focus on rallying.

I have seen people and reviews suggesting that WRC 7 is a better rallying game compared to D4. They seem to have gone in a new direction with that game.

WRC7 is a strange one - the R5s handle really convincingly and sim-like. Sadly, the modern WRCs are very arcadey. It is also let down by poor framerates, poor replays and not enough stages on individual rallies. Its another case of an unfinished product being put out.

Car list is out already, didn't know that. No WRC/RC1 cars, wasn't expecting it.

Notable that Group B RWD, F2 and Group B rallycross cars are all missing (all three classes were in Dirt 4).

I suspect that the Group B RWD cars (now including the 911 SC RS) will form part of the first DLC and the Group B rallycross cars have been pretty much confirmed for the second DLC. I hope the Group B RX cars are better implemented this time.

Ascona 400 is sort of GpB

The WRC cars missing would be about licencing issues

First season of DLC revealed:



Looks like two Group B RWD cars and four (unofficial) WRCars, plus three revised DR1 locations.

Looking forward to trying the R5's at Monte Carlo and Germany.
