It seems that Codemasters are teasing the existence of DiRT 4, the long awaited sequel, or at least that’s the assumption that the Internet seems to arrive at, but is there any truth to it?
Speculation began when the official DiRT Twitter sent out a simple Tweet saying, “4”, followed by another an later that stated, “oops sorry finger slipped” Fans began wondering if this was teasing an announcement of DiRT 4. Websites began reporting on it, including IGN who make it sound like an announcement is all but assured.
However, hopes may have been dashed as the Twitter account followed up shortly after with another Tweet saying, “Sorry, that was mean of us, what we meant to say was: 4 amazing prizes to be won, check our next tweet for details.”
They then put up a Tweet announcing a competition in which there were indeed four prizes to be won:

So now there’s plenty of arguments springing up, with some arguing that it was actually a tease sent out deliberately to coincide with the competition in order to mess with people a little more. Others are happy to accept that it was a simple, albeit slightly heartbreaking accident.
