Ubisoft Might Cancel Roller Champions As Per Reports



ubisoft might cancel roller champions

Ubisoft is likely to scrap its recently released multiplayer game Roller Champions. As per video game reporter Jeff Grubb, Ubisoft is planning to formally cancel the game after the game's third season comes to a close. 

Quoting an anonymous source from Ubisoft, he revealed this news in the latest episode of The XboxEra Podcast.  Although the company has not made any official announcements, Jeff Grub remarked that this is “breaking news” since he firmly believes that the claim was not unsubstantial. 

Ubisoft had initially introduced Roller Champions, along with a pre-alpha demo of the game, in 2019. As per plans, Roller Champions was supposed to be released by Ubisoft in 2021. 

Here's a trailer of the game:

The date was postponed and Roller Champions was finally released as a 3v3, free-to-play game for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC in late May 2022. There have been reports that Ubisoft didn’t choose to publicize the game that much.

The game was released the following month on Nintendo Switch as well and received a favorable response from players and critics likewise. However, reports indicate that the game has failed to gain traction as it hasn't been able to attract many players on all of its platforms. 

As per data from Twitch, it has just 1700 viewers on average. This signifies that the game has not been successful in holding the attention and investment of gamers. 

The cancellation of Roller Champions would not be unexpected given that Ubisoft recently shelved four other titles due to reasons related to cost-cutting. Splinter Cell VR, Ghost Recon Frontline, and two more undisclosed works-in-progress have all been shelved. 

Along with the series of cancellations, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has also been postponed until 2023–2024. Given the disappointing mood of fans, Ubisoft will need to create something genuinely exceptional to win back the trust of the gaming community.
