After the last outing on the Xbox 360 back in 2013, the WRC had a pretty quiet 2014.
All that is about to change.
Big Ben Interactive have announced that a new officially licensed rally sim, WRC 5, will be heading to Xbox One in the autumn of this year.
Buckle yourselves in, ply your co-driver with coffee and prepare yourself for the biggest rally simulator yet. Development has shifted to genre-newcomers, Kylotton Games, formerly 4X Studios.
Diego Sartori is a Creative Director of the French studio and had this to say about the announcement,
We are very proud and excited to work on a title dedicated to one of the most challenging and spectacular forms of motor sport.
WRC driver and 2013 WRC 3 champion, Sebastien Chardonnet, will be the official game ambassador and has been involved in the concept and planning of the game from the early stages,
It’s exciting to help Kylotton to make the best WRC game ever seen. Combining my driver and gamer experience with their technical point of view is something interesting when you are trying to do the most realistic game possible.
The game will include the usual environmental challenges in the stages, with mountains, snow, valleys, rain and dust. The vehicles will be decked out in the current WRC 2015 livery and will feature brand new stages and new games modes too.
