Additionally, compatible Fanatec wheels are now recognised. Previously, connecting a Fanatec wheel caused the Xbox game to crash and boot back to the console dashboard.

KT Racing notes that players may still find issues with other Thrustmaster peripherals. An update is already in development to solve this.

There still are force feedback issues with Logitech steering wheels, but KT Racing says a future Logitech G HUB update should resolve this. It’s taken nearly a month, but WRC Generations is now finally playable with a wheel on Xbox.

An update will also be out for PlayStation consoles next week addressing the same issues as other platforms.
