Milestone loses the Rally Sim war before it even began

2015 is shaping up to be the year of the Rally Sim, with DiRT Rally, Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo, and WRC 5 all due to be released within a month or two of each other. While DiRT Rally is already available on Steam in early access format, we’ve heard very little about Milestone’s Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo. Originally, I’d been pretty excited about the title, until DiRT Rally dropped on us out of nowhere.

After a few weeks spent with DiRT Rally, it’s hard to believe the guys behind WRC 4 and MotoGP 14 could build a serious competitor – and preview footage released today seems to back that belief up. Despite being labelled pre-alpha as a form of damage control for the inevitable negative comments, I just don’t think what we’re seeing today will change all that much compared to the release version in a few months:

Now, look at what Codemasters has managed to put out, with the game still heavily in the early access phase:

Coupled with the news that DiRT Rally will come to both the Xbox One and Playstation 4, Milestone is already at a disadvantage.

  1. The more time goes by, the more interested I find myself in DiRT:Rally over Project CARS, and I’m willing to say it’s that’s good thing.

  2. What’s the point for Milestone to release two similar rally games same fall? I guess they were trying to capitalize on their monopoly situation, what a misfortune that’s no longer the case.
