Yep, next year there probably will be no Colin Mcrae in the WRC. (I bet he won't be missed too much, he's yesterdays news.)
If they want to stay with Ford, I'd think a Markko Märtin rally game would be just as awesome. (Especially with the new focus rally car!)
(Note: I am aware that is not Martin's car, its Duvals, but they are basically the same.)
As for rally games, unfortunately WRC 2 for PS2 was not released in North America, which sucks since its a great game, I guess its the masses of north americans that would rather watch Nascar races, experience the joy of watching cars turn left.
