Dirt 5 Supports Cross-Gen Saves On Xbox Series X/S, But Not PS5

In another example of Sony's confusing cross-gen save support, Dirt 5 will not let players transfer their progress with the free next-gen upgrade.

While Codemasters' Dirt 5 will offer free next-gen upgrades for both PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S players, the former will not be able to transfer any progress from the PS4 version of the game when making the jump to the newer console.

This was confirmed on the game's official Twitter account in a response to a fan question. When upgrading Dirt 5 from PS4 to PS5, the game will allow you to move across any Playground track creations but no progress from its campaign, any in-game currency, and custom livery designs. By comparison, all of these are supported when moving your save from Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S.

Dirt 5 is supporting Microsoft's Smart Delivery program, which makes its cross-gen save situation easier to understand. But it's now another game in a growing list of PS4 titles with next-gen upgrades that won't support save transfers. Yakuza: Like a Dragon will also not let you transfer your save when it launches in March for PS5, while Sony's own Spider-Man will not let you bring over your progress to the PS5 remaster. Curiously though, save transfers between the PS4 and PS5 versions of Spider-Man: Miles Morales are supported.

Dirt 5 is launching alongside the Xbox Series X on November 10 after two small delays. It will also launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on the same day, before coming to PS5 on November 12 when Sony's console launches.
