Nothing more extreme than delaying your game (Pic: Ubisoft)
Ubisoft has opted to delay its extreme sports game, Riders Republic, for additional development time, but it will still release this year.
Looks like you’d better start getting used to hearing this. Following news that Warner Bros. is delaying Hogwarts Legacy until 2022, Ubisoft is doing the same for Riders Republic.
Originally, it was slated to release this February but Ubisoft has decided to push it back to later in the year, though it didn’t say how much later.
Considering Ubisoft has barely discussed or shown off the game since its reveal in September, this isn’t too surprising to hear and is undoubtedly for the best.
‘We promised an action-packed outdoor sports park, filled with all-out mass races with more than 50 fellow riders on next-gen consoles, a variety of diverse activities and insane stunts,’ reads the game’s official website.
‘Today, we want to let you know that we have made the decision to move our release to later this year. This additional time will allow our passionate team to deliver the best fun fuelled experience to our players.’
As a reminder, Riders Republic is an extreme sports online multiplayer game, featuring the likes of snowboarding, downhill cycling, and wingsuit flying.
It’s being developed by Ubisoft Annecy, which previously did the open world winter sports game Steep in 2016.
Riders Republic will release in 2021 for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Stadia.
