High user ratings lead to over two million multiplayer races across PlayStation and Xbox; further updates in coming months, including 2023 Season Update and Nintendo Switch port
After bringing the “Greatest Show on Dirt” back to the console gaming world for the first time in over a decade, World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing has been a major success for Monster Games and its parent company, iRacing. Universal acclaim from the community—including an average rating of over 4.5 stars—has led to record engagement levels, setting the stage for a major 2023 Season Update and Nintendo Switch release in the fall.
In all, World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing engagement has roughly quadrupled, with more multiplayer races completed than our previous three games combined. Since its release, players have created more than 2.2 million multiplayer races across the Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox console families, with the PlayStation 4 and 5 combining for 1.2 million sessions and Xbox One, Series X, and Series S combining for the remaining million. In addition, the title has set new all-time records for peak users and continues to delight our passionate fans on a daily basis.
Thanks to the continued popularity of World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing, the title will receive an extensive 2023 Season Update this summer that will feature new drivers, paint schemes, tracks, and series. The 2023 Season Update will be a paid add-on to the game for PlayStation and Xbox users, following the conclusion of the 2022 Season Pass. In addition, a Nintendo Switch port of World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing will be released in the fall; the Switch port will integrate all content from the 2022 Season Pass and 2023 Season Update into the base game. Players don’t need to wait to get in on the action, though; World of Outlaws: Dirt Racing is on sale for $39.99 now for all PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
