FIA World Rally Championship fans will soon get the opportunity to take on the off-road challenges of the WRC in an upcoming game from Black Bean called WRC: FIA World Rally Championship. The game was recently announced as a title currently in development and scheduled for release in 2010.

According to the press release, Simon Long, ISC CEO commented saying…
“The official WRC game will engage a whole new audience for the sport and we’re tremendously excited at the opportunities to grow our fan base and the profile of the WRC. It provides a hugely powerful touch point for us in which to showcase the WRC to consumers, and it will be the most realistic and playable rally game of all time. We chose to work with Black Bean Games because they have a proven track record making top level games with the official license in two-wheel motorsport.”

MileStone, the developers, is the same studio behind SBK the one we reviewed here earlier in the year. The company is taking on the WRC license to make a kick-butt rally game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, though. This means that Colin McRae’s DiRT series will be getting a little competition.
