Codemasters has confirmed that it is developing a new Colin McRae Rally game, which is set for release in 2007. The game has been given the working title of CMR '07 and is in development for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. It will feature races with multiple cars on one track simultaneously, as well as online multiplayer.
The series has been on a break for two years now, and the time has allowed Codemasters to implement racing modes that will supplement the traditional point-to-point rallying in the form of hill climb and rally cross events. CMR '07 will also offer cars that have been modeled on the real thing, in addition to official rally tracks from around the globe. Although little else is known about the game at this stage, Codemasters is also promising gravel, mud, and dirt racing and a wide variety of off-road and rally disciplines.
The game is still in an early stage of development, but we'll keep you up to date on all the latest developments.
