A rep from UK-based Codemasters made an important announcement on the company's forums today, declaring that there will be no PlayStation 2 release of Colin McRae Rally 2005 in North America. Furthermore, the PC version will be available only through Codemasters' online store. Only the Xbox version will ship to retail outlets. The European and Australian releases are not affected by this announcement, however. Players in those territories will still be able to pick up Colin McRae Rally 2005 for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC when it is released in September.
No Colin McRae for US PS2s
Only the Xbox version of Codemasters' upcoming rally racer will be in stateside stores this fall; PC version will be available online.
