McRae DIRT in June

Codemasters says so.

Codemasters is planning to launch Colin McRae: DIRT simultaneously on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in June, the publisher told Eurogamer this morning.

"At the moment the guys in the studio are working towards June, more likely to be the end of June I'd imagine," said a Codemasters spokesperson.

"As far as we're concerned internally, everything's on track."

It will be the first next-gen rally outing for the publisher, who is eager to impress us with heaps of sparkly high-definition mud.

The game will have the usual boot-full of point-to-point races and plenty of off-road excursions, as well as new Rally Cross events. You'll be able to hop behind the wheels of 2WD, 4WD, Classic and RWD vehicles, drive carelessly, and make a right old mess.

DIRT's got a flashy new damage engine too, multiplayer support and European, International and Global rally championships. It's enough to get our engines purring.

While you're waiting for the June release, you can gander at the screenshots elsewhere on the site.
