Bigben Interactive has announced WRC 6, the next game in the long-running rally series heading to PS4, Xbox One and PC this autumn.

Developed by Kylotonn, WRC 6 promises to introduce a "batch of new features" along with improved graphics and audio that will help "raise the WRC experience on consoles to a new level of realism and excitement". You can check out the first screenshots through here.

The game will also mark the debut of Rally China and expand on the eSports WRC introduced with WRC 5. All 14 rounds of the 2016 WRC season will be included, too, along with every star WRC driver and a "wide selection" of WRC 2 teams and competitors from the Junior WRC category.

"We spent the last 8 months, since the release of WRC 5, collecting and studying all the feedback from the community to improve the experience and take it to a new level," said game director Alain Jarniou. "The experience gained from WRC 5 helped the team to completely understand the expectations of racing fans when it comes to rallying. Roads were too wide in WRC 5? They will be narrower and more bumpy in WRC 6. Stages were sometimes too short? We created new longer stages and reworked everything to make them longer and more challenging.

"These are just a few examples of the massive improvements we are bringing to WRC 6 and we already know that players will definitely appreciate these changes."

More details on WRC 6 are set to be revealed at E3 next month.
