WRC 8 is being developed by Kylotonn – whose recent work includes TT Isle of Man and V-Rally 4 – and will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

The series returns after a two year absence, during which time Kylotonn say they have been busy tweaking all aspects of the game, with a focus on improving vehicle physics and handling.
