WRC 6 Announced for PS4, Xbox One, PC

Narrower courses and longer races headline changes.


Kylotonn Racing Games has announced WRC 6, the latest entry in the long running rally racing series. The title is scheduled to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2016.

According to a press release, Kylotonn has used much of the feedback from WRC 5 in designing its follow-up.

"We spent the last 8 months, since the release of WRC 5, collecting and studying all the feedback from the community to improve the experience and take it to a new level," said game director Alain Jarniou.

Among the changes made based on feedback is narrower and longer courses, Jarniou went on to explain.

"The experience gained from WRC 5 helped the team to completely understand the expectations of racing fans when it comes to rallying. Roads were too wide in WRC 5? They will be narrower and more bumpy in WRC 6. Stages were sometimes too short? We created new longer stages and reworked everything to make them longer and more challenging."

The developer has said it plans to announce additional features "in the coming weeks," and will show the game more at E3 in June.

WRC 6 will be the official game of the FIA World Rally Championship and, as such, it will feature all 14 rounds of the 2016 WRC season, along with drivers and teams from the main and junior WRC categories.
