MotoGP 23 will be released later this year, but which editions will be available?

With the potential for special editions to return in 2023, there's a lot of reasons to be excited.

Here's everything you need to know about MotoGP's editions!

MotoGP 23 Editions

We haven't heard anything official from Milestone regarding their 2023 Motorcycle Grand Prix game. That isn't unusual, as the Announcement Trailer doesn't normally get released until the end of February.

So, as of the time of writing, we don't know which versions of MotoGP 23 will be available to gamers on the game's release date.

MotoGP 22 did not have any special editions released alongside the regular game. In fact, we haven't seen any special editions of MotoGP released since 2020. Could that change in 2023, though?

Standard edition

One version that we know will launch for sure is the Standard Edition of MotoGP 23. This is the base game that will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, Switch and PC via the Steam Store.

We're not sure right now whether Xbox One and the PS4 will also get MotoGP 23. These systems did get MotoGP 22, and if they also get 23, then the PlayStation and Xbox versions should be cross-generational.

The PC and Switch versions of MotoGP 23 should be the cheapest, as they usually retail at around £39.99 on release day.

The PS and Xbox versions for both old and next-gen should cost £44.99. This price won't change even if the old-gen versions aren't available. By current standards, these are very cheap video games for their size and scope.

Other editions

Milestone didn't make any other versions of MotoGP 22 available to fans. The VIP and Limited Editions that we were used to in past games didn't return in 2022.

Could that change this year, though? Well, anything is possible, especially with games like Need for Speed making full use of special editions. However, it appears that special editions are something Milestone are moving away from.

This is a good thing in a sense, because all content will be available to all players, regardless of which edition they buy.

There should be a lot of content as well, with not only MotoGP, but also Moto2, Moto3, MotoE and special modes such as a new version of the Nine Career Mode that was so refreshing in 2022.

MotoGP 23 release date

The MotoGP 23 release date is likely to be in mid to late April, as has been the case for MotoGP games for years now.

MotoGP 22 was released worldwide and on every system on 21 April 2022 and there's no reason for that to change 12 months on. The announcement trailer in late February will confirm this year's game's release date.
