WRC Generations release date

At the time of writing there is an official release date for WRC Generations, but only on a few platforms.

We know that WRC Generations will be available on 13 October 2022 on PS4 & PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

However, both PC and Nintendo Switch are currently labelled as arriving later.

It's a bizarre state for the PC version. Usually, that platform is the first to be solidified, with console versions being finished and published later.

Perhaps Kylotonn has encountered a problem, or maybe they have something special for PC players up their sleeves.

What about Switch?

The WRC series is a regular Switch port, but usually not until a few months after release.

WRC 10, the latest instalment, only hit the handheld Nintendo platform at the end of March. That was more than six months after the initial release.

As a result, Switch players shouldn't expect WRC Generations to be available until at least April 2023.

Early access

Most racing games launch with some form of early access baked into a premium edition, like F1 22 will later this year.

However, the WRC series does not usually do this. There has been no reveal so far of any premium edition, as we don't expect early access to be a feature for WRC Generations.
