WRC Generations has been delayed


The last WRC title under Nacon's umbrella will be delayed. It will be a short amount of time, from mid October to November 3rd and the reason is to gather all different editions in just one release date, avoiding splitting the audience and potential issues.

This way, console editions, which were planned initially for October 14th will have an a couple of weeks attention to polish possible bugs or other hickups.

This change was decided due to community feedback at Gamescom and recent esports events. A later release on PC was often questioned by vocal WRC fans and this new release strategy is the way to make it clear for everybody. This is what Kylotonn stated with this announcement.

WRC Generations will have two editions: Deluxe and Regular with a difference of 10 dollar/euro, starting from 39,99 dollar/euro. Deluxe edition has some interesting content consisting on:
  • The WRC Generations base game
  • Sébastien Loeb's Citroën C4 WRC
  • Additional livery for Romain Dumas' Porsche 911 GT3 RS RGT
  • Bonus items to enhance the livery editor
  • A Career Starter Pack with experienced crew member cards for Career mode
  • Three months of free access to WRC+, the official streaming platform of the FIA World Rally Championship
On PC and consoles you can enjoy Marcus Grönholm's iconic Peugeot 206 WRC from 2002 if you purchase the game in the first two weeks after the release date on PC and making a preorder on consoles. After that the car will cost 4,99 dollar/euro.

Given the confusion in past years' WRC games with different release dates and special packages – as well as the possibility of further optimizing the game – this is good news to me. I eventually want to pick up one game of the WRC series in my library to play in single player and experience the amazing stages (e.g. Kenya, Japan). Since it will have oodles of stages, I'd love it if Generations was that game... so any additional chance to balance AI and "work out the kinks" is welcome.

Oh boy... I hope this installment won't get messed up.

Edit: There is no doubt that the PC, PS5 & Xbox Series X versions are going to be superior to the Nintendo Switch version, it's not just the hardware power. Mainly, the ability to use a wheelbase that supports force feedback with add-ons such as load cell pedal set, handbrake & gear shifter which the Nintendo Switch cannot support. Sorry for my grudge against Nintendo consoles when it comes to driving games.

3 months of wrc+ I wish I could've them when I bought wrc 9 and 10... I know I've pre-ordered them on CD keys and instant gaming but ... ://
 
I hope they have built in telemetry support for bass shakers. The "Dirt 2 patch" did a nice job for WRC 10 but would really appreciate less hassle.

Better tke time and have a polished overall game rather than rushed product.
 
Delay is good. Wondering what the feedback was about.

"A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad."

not true though.
the division 1 was terribly rushed yet it turned out one of the best looter shooters.
wildlands the same, no mans sky...
 
No VR sadly.
Seriously, we're almost in 2023! No RV no purchase!!!
Especially a rally simulation where the VR is so interesting and ultra immersive in very tight turns or controlled skids.
What a stupid thing!
There are more and more virtual "pilots" who are equipped with VR headsets, I think very few of them will buy this game.
Not me anyway.

Insane developers to leave VR out. They gave up already because EA bought the license I think.

While I'd agree and I think it's great that developers can improve the experience, if they or their publisher are willing, as someone outside the sphere of FPS gaming I only know of the Division for having a bad launch so it does still have an impact especially on initial uptake.
While you may refine it down the line it does seem potentially worthwhile to make sure the launch version isn't going to hurt your reputation.
