Over at Eurogamer, there's some interesting release information for players awaiting upcoming Codemasters titles DiRT 3 and Operation Flashpoint: Red River. According to company CEO Rod Cousens, both titles will be released next year "between 1st April and the end of June." Both games will be available for the PC as well as the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Red River, a tactical first-person shooter, will chronicle a fictional conflict in Tajikistan. Considering its predecessor, Dragon Rising, was lauded for its graphics and detail, it will be interesting to see what graphical improvements make it into Red River.
The DiRT racing games let players compete on some great off-road tracks throughout the world. DiRT 2 is a popular game here at The Tech Report and can often be found in our reviews and benchmarks. If the graphics offered in the actual game live up to this teaser trailer, then DiRT 3 will be a visual treat.
Cousens also briefly touched on the sequel to GRID. He declined to share any specifics about the game, but he did mention that it will be released in 2012 as part of the company's plan to alternate the release years for DiRT and GRID games. (Thanks to Shacknews for the link.)
