Roller Champions may be one of the more interesting sport game prospects out there right now. Ubisoft is taking roller derby and applying some ball scoring mechanics in a free-to-play format. The game has been in development for a few years now and was set to go live soon, but it looks like Ubisoft wants a little bit more time to polish things up. A recently posted delay will push the release date of Roller Champions back to the end of spring 2022.
Ubisoft’s latest delay of Roller Champions was posted quietly in the game’s Discord, as spotted by video game industry insider Tom Henderson. According to the announcement, Ubisoft has found that player feedback and a look at the current state of the game has dictated that a minor delay is what the developing team needs to get the game fully polished up to what Ubisoft wants it to be. With that in mind, the game’s full release will be pushed back to the end of spring 2022. Roller Champions was originally expected to launch around March 31, 2022.

Ubisoft shared apologies for the final delay before the homestretch of Roller Champions launch and thanked fans for their patience and feedback so far.
Announced back at E3 2019, Roller Champions has been delayed a few times as it slipped into 2021, and then 2022. However, this last delay seems more miniscule. For those who have been waiting, hopefully this will be the last of the delays for the game. Once we have the latest updates, such as a final release date, we’ll share it here at Shacknews.
