Roller Champions, the 3v3 PvP Free-to-play sports game by Ubisoft is out for a while. Right after its release, however, the heat for the title went quiet. Many blame the lack of marketing for the game. It is natural for people to think that the company might pull the plug on the game. After all, this isn’t the first time Ubisoft’s done that.
A recent report by Eurogamer suggested that the Assassin’s Creed developers may cancel the game, citing the recent financial call and based on claims made by Jeff Grubb on the Xbox Era podcast. In the same financial call, Ubisoft mentioned that even though the title performed better than their failed Battle-Royale Hyperscape, it wasn’t successful enough to continue support.
After this report received traction, the company took over Twitter to squash the claims. Through a post on the official Roller Champions account to issue a statement.
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.

As per the statement, Ubisoft reaffirms that they are not cancelling the game. However, they did say that the current season, called “Disco Fever”, will extend. The reason for this is they are working on a patch that includes cross-invites and fixes for issues pointed out by players.
Finally, Ubisoft assured the player base of keeping them updated. So fans of the game don’t have anything to worry about yet.
