Codemasters has announced today via a press release that the PC version of their upcoming racer Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will be delayed until December 2009.
Originally scheduled to be released alongside the console versions in September, the PC version has been delayed so that the development team can incorporate support for DirectX 11. Apparently, this means the game will look more fluid, with notable improvements in the appearance of water and other surfaces, and crowd animations.
DirectX 11 is expected to be released as part of the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system on 22 October 2009, while a downloadable version will be made available for Windows Vista users. Codemasters were also kind enough to release two new screenshots from the PC version, both of which can be found in the media panel.
