Serial dataminer and leaker @billbil_kun has revealed that the first WRC developed by Codemasters and published by EA will release in July.
Billbil_kun, who previously revealed 26 achievements coming to WRC revealed that the game will launch on July 28, 2023.
Insider Gaming sources spoke of WRC 23’s development in September 2023, where we reported that the game will allow you to develop your own rally car.
Early footage of WRC 23 that was provided to Insider Gaming under the condition that the footage was not shared publically, or privately and that the sources remained anonymous shows that the game had 16 individual car classes. Players will be able to pick everything from their drive chain to the engine, differential, gearbox, clutch, radiator, suspension, brakes, exhaust, and more.
Insider Gaming sources have told Insider Gaming that WRC has been built on the foundations of the canceled DiRT title that was meant to release sometime in 2023, with the idea being to save time and money based on both games’ similarities.
It’s unclear when WRC 23 will officially be revealed, but datamined information usually suggests that an announcement is likely on the horizon.
As first reported by GI.biz, a new license between EA and WRC was signed in 2020 and will span from 2023 to 2027. The deal includes the rights for the studio to publish new titles, in addition to running its esports events.
