Confirming what a recent leak suggested, Codemasters and Koch Media announced that Dirt Rally will release on April 5, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, following its Steam release today.

Codemasters CEO Frank Sagnier said:

The launch on Steam early access has been a resounding success. We want to thank the community for their valuable feedback and support which has guided our development for the past eight months, resulting in a 92% positive user score. We are now ready to launch the final version of the game on PC. Following this success on PC and a vocal demand from consumers, we are delighted to announce that Dirt Rally will be available on consoles on April 5th 2016.

Here’s the description for Dirt Rally:

With Dirt Rally, Codemasters has captured the essence of what makes rally unique – that sense of trying to remain in control of your emotions, as you hurtle along dangerous, undulating roads at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time. It’s the ultimate test of a driver’s skill, and it’s the ultimate in high risk, high reward gameplay.

The community is Dirt Rally’s co-driver and their feedback is helping to shape the evolution of the experience. For players joining Dirt Rally in Early Access and the road ahead, the team want their feedback. They’ll be helping to test theories and providing vital data that will help to refine Dirt Rally.

During Early Access, Dirt Rally’s dedicated players drove over 90 million kilometres, raced 3 million clean stages, and performed nearly 2.4 million barrel rolls.

Aside from the release date, specific details for the console versions weren’t given.
