Ubisoft has delayed the release of its free-to-play online sports game Roller Champions.
Previously planned for release during the company’s current fiscal year ending on March 31, the game will now arrive in “late spring”.
The delay was confirmed in a message sent to beta testers on Discord, which was spotted by Tom Henderson.
“After evaluating every possible scenario, the team has concluded that they will need a bit more time to deliver the successful game you deserve,” the message reads.
“We believe it’s the right decision to properly honour your excitement (and our own!) for the game and the competitive scene you’ve started around our beta.”

It added: “We know that many of you have been following the development of the game for a while now and to showcase our appreciation of your continued support, we wanted to make sure you get this news first: Roller Champions will be releasing this late spring.”
Announced in 2019 and originally scheduled for release the following year, Roller Champions is in development for PC and consoles at Ubisoft Montreal.
It pits two teams of three players against each other in arenas around the world. “The rules are simple: take the ball, make a lap, and score,” according to Ubisoft.
Earlier this month, Ubisoft also delayed its The Settlers reboot based on beta feedback. Prior to the delay, the PC game had been scheduled for release on March 17.
