Ubisoft has issued a statement following the recent allegations that Roller Champions was cancelled. Yesterday, we reported on the news that sources on the internet claimed that after its third season, Ubisoft was going to cancel its free-to-play rollerskating game, Roller Champions. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
In a statement, Ubisoft says that firstly, the game isn’t cancelled and the studio currently doesn’t have any plans to can the game after its third season. The statement also announced that Ubisoft will be extending the current 80s Disco Fever season as the studio tackles social issues in the game and gives players more time to unlock content in the game.
The statement reads:
“Hello Champions! Let’s clear it out of the way first, Roller Champions isn’t getting cancelled, and Ubisoft fully supports it.
What the Roller Champions dev team is doing is making sure we focus on what our players have told us needs improvement, and that supersedes all other priorities.
As far as content is concerned, we can tell you that we’ve got exciting stuff planned for the next seasons.
We strongly believe, however, that before we release new content, we’ve got to do right by our players, hence why we are taking the time needed before we do.”
Hello Champions! Let’s clear it out of the way first, Roller Champions isn’t getting cancelled, and Ubisoft fully supports it.
You can rest assured we’ll keep you updated as we roll forward.

During its financial call last week, Ubisoft claimed that Roller Champions was performing better than its other recently cancelled free-to-play game, Hyper Scape. The company also cancelled Ghost Recon Frontline and delayed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora to late 2023. Roller Champions is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox and PC.
