Colin McRae: Dirt 2 was released on September 8, 2009 by Codemasters. The game was developed by Codemasters. Colin McRae: Dirt 2 is a driving game.

It is the first game in the series since McRae’s death in 2007 and the last to feature his name in the title. McRae’s performances with the Subaru World Rally Team enabled the team to win the World Rally Championship Manufacturers’ title three times in succession in 1995, 1996 and 1997. After a four-year spell with the Ford Motor Co. team, which saw McRae win nine events, he moved to Citroën World Rally Team in 2003 where, despite not winning an event, he helped them win their first manufacturers’ title. He was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire for services to motorsport in 1996.

It features Ken Block, Travis Pastrana, Tanner Foust, Dave Mirra and Mohammed ben Sulayem. The game includes many new race-events, including stadium events. Along with the player, an RV travels from one event to another, and serves as “headquarters” for the player. It features a roster of contemporary off-road events, taking players to diverse and challenging real-world environments. The game takes place across Asia, Europe, Africa and North America.

Colin McRae: Dirt 2 features five racing disciplines, all of which are playable offline (against AI bots when applicable) and online. In addition, three “special modes” are included. Colin McRae: Dirt 2 runs on an updated version of the EGO engine, which powered Codemasters’ Race Driver: Grid as well. The engine features, most notably, an updated physics engine, which models realistic weight transfer during turning maneuvers, allowing the player to incorporate advanced driving techniques, such as the Scandinavian flick.
