DIRT 5 developer, Codemasters, have confirmed that a major 2.0 update is just around the corner for the latest racing game sequel.
Those who have been playing on PS5 will be happy to hear that they addressing the issues surrounding glitched trophies. For some players, certain progress related trophies haven’t unlocked even after hitting completing the listed requirements. We have some first-hand experience with this, the gold trophy “Superstardom” still not popping even after reaching level 50 with other trophies being similarly bugged.
Here is what the developers have said in response to the trophy issue.
PS5 #DIRT5 players: Thanks for your feedback on some Trophies not unlocking 🔽
This is resolved in the next update, with any Trophies you’ve previously earned triggering after installing it and progressing in the game.

DIRT 5 update 2.0 doesn’t have a confirmed release date just yet. What we do know is that it will also include other fixes and features such as racing wheel support and further optimisations for next-gen consoles.
Beyond that, Codemasters will be adding more Online race events, including some multi-class races. They’re also making adjustments to the handling of Sprint cars, and will be tweaking the discoverability in Playgrounds so that you can find the best content quicker.
Codemasters also have some work to do with the graphics settings, and will be adding V-Sync options on PS4. They’re also making another pass on the next-gen versions of the game – this will likely be to address the disparity between PS5 and Xbox Series X in 120Hz mode, with Series X seeming to have lower quality visual settings compared to PS5, but having a steadier 120fps as a consequence.
There’s no word on if update 2.00 will also feature the revised haptic and trigger feedback for DualSense controller that was promised around the launch of the PS5.
DIRT 5 scooped an impressive 8 out 10 from our resident racing game expert, Thomas. Here’s what he had to say:
DIRT 5 strips away the more serious elements of the franchise and puts all its eggs in one, arcade cabinet shaped, basket. At times a riot, in other areas a little repetitive and lacking in finesse, it nevertheless delivers on the concept of an adrenaline-fueled off-road racer. It’s a game that makes you sit forward in your seat and savour the joys of jumping a Dakar Rally Peugeot 3008 over a ravine.
We expect patch notes to be available around the time of the update’s release.
DIRT 5 is out now for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
