It’s been a long time since a new WRC game was released, but it appears that the wait will be over soon. Codemasters has bought rights to the World Rally Championship (WRC) game license from KT Racing and will now succeed WRC Generations.
A number of credible sources confirm that the next World Rally Championship (WRC) game by EA will be released in the spring of this year, and Geoff Smith, former head of Dirt and Grid games at Codemasters, will oversee the game all the way to its release.
In particular, a renowned data miner, billbil_kun, on Twitter revealed the next inline title, WRC 23, is ready to launch and to back his claims up; he also posted 26 achievement icons that will be available in the game.
However, these are just rumors; normally, titles in the WRC series are released later in the year. Nevertheless, an early release this year might still come out, tentatively in either March or June, before the F1 edition of the game rolls out later in July.
Tom Henderson, a trusted reporter at EA, unveiled that WRC 23 will provide players with complete freedom to design their rally car however they want. This reveal is consistent with what Insider Gaming exclusively revealed in September 2022, so it’s pretty much on the table.
It was also at that time when Insider Gaming claimed to have the footage of the game in its early stages; however, they were not provided the freedom to make the footage public, and they were bound to the condition of anonymity.
