Rumors about an early end for the roller derby action Roller Champions have been circulating for days, urging publisher Ubisoft to comment. The publisher says: Not true at all!
Will fans of the game have to give up their roller skates anytime soon? This was claimed a few days ago by the games journalist Jeff Grubb in the Episode 118 of the Xbox Era Podcast. According to Grubbs “breaking news”, the free-to-play title that was only released on May 25 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Switch should be discontinued after the third season.
Ubisoft denies the rumours
Ubisoft is now targeting players via the official Roller Champions Twitter account: Roller Champions will not be discontinued, but will continue to be supported by Ubisoft. The sports game does not join the list of titles recently sawn off by Ubisoft. As we reported last week, the publisher pulled the plug on four titles in development, including a new installment in the Ghost Recon series, due to cost-cutting measures.
The team behind Role Champions wants to take community feedback seriously and resolve current issues before releasing a new season. Therefore, the disco fever season should be extended. The players can skate under the disco ball longer and, as the publisher emphasizes, look forward to “further exciting content updates”. The current statement does not reveal when exactly this should follow and which problems will be fixed in addition to the missing cross-invite function.
Hello champions! Let’s clear it out of the way first, Roller Champions isn’t getting cancelled, and Ubisoft fully supports it.
You can rest assured we’ll keep you updated as we roll forward.
