Codemasters plans DiRT 2 for September

Jumpgate, Overlord dates detailed.

Codemasters has said Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will launch here this September.

The dirty racing game - in development for PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii and DS - will be bigger and more aggressive than the first, and uses the same, apparently impressive, EGO engine that Codemasters keeps waffling on about.

The DiRT date coincides with calendar organisation for Overlord: Dark Legend on Wii and Overlord: Minions on DS, both of which will be here in June.

Codemasters also said spaceship MMO Jumpgate Evolution will be here in June, but we already knew that. Old.

That's quite a busy 2009 for Codemasters, which also launches FUEL and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising this year.

Handily, we've just published our impressions of both Operation Flashpoint and FUEL, so pop over to those articles to bone up.
