Ubisoft’s Roller Champions Will Reportedly Be Cancelled: Ubisoft’s free-to-play sports game Roller Champions is rumored to be wrapping up production shortly, only a few months after release.
According to Giant Bomb journalist Jeff Grubb, who made the assertion on the Xbox Era podcast, “Roller Champions is going to be scrapped after Season 3.”
In order to get Ubisoft’s take on things, VGC has reached out to them for a statement.
Roller Champions, a free-to-play online sports game created by Ubisoft Montreal, was announced in 2019 and set for release in May 2022.

According to Ubisoft’s most recent earnings call, the game is performing better than Hyper Scape, the now-canceled battle royale from Ubisoft. This is despite the fact that Hyper Scape was released with multiple seasons of content after the game’s initial release.
According to reports, however, this hasn’t led to any significant increase in popularity. There were fewer than a hundred individuals watching the game on Twitch at the time of writing.
Hyper Scape, created by Ubisoft Montréal, was a free-to-play, 100-player battle royale first-person shooter set in a futuristic metropolitan area dubbed Neo-Arcadia.
In July of 2020, the game’s open beta version was made available to the public. However, Ubisoft discontinued the game’s major updates less than a year after its initial release.
During a conference call with investors on Thursday, Ubisoft announced the cancellation of three games: Ghost Recon Frontline, Splinter Cell VR, and two more.
Additionally, the release of Avatar: The Frontiers of Pandora was also postponed. Its original delivery date of 2022 has been pushed back to the start of the company’s fiscal year in April 2023.
