Riders Republic, Ubisoft’s wacky excessive sports activities recreation, has been delayed. The title was initially slated to launch February 25 however will now arrive at an undetermined date later this yr.
Ubisoft’s tweet explains the rationale for the delay is to easily permit extra time to offer the sport some extra TLC given its giant scope, particularly in its on-line multiplayer.
Riders Republic premiered throughout final September’s Ubisoft Ahead occasion. The sport pits as much as 50 gamers in opposition to one another in quite a lot of excessive competitions together with biking, snowboarding, snowboarding, and wing suiting. Regardless of the massive participant rely, the sport can nonetheless be loved solo in addition to in co-op. Gamers may compete in occasions, such because the X Video games, and signal sponsorships to lift their Rider’s clout. One other cool characteristic is the sport’s real-world places primarily based on America’s nationwide parks reminiscent of Bryce Canyon, Grand Teton, and Mammoth Mountain. We don’t get many AAA excessive sports activities video games anymore, so Riders Republic is a welcomed venture and appears like a blast thus far.
Many studios are nonetheless discovering their groove in relation to working from house, so I wouldn’t count on Riders Republic to be the final massive launch to undergo a significant delay. We’ve already seen marquee titles video games reminiscent of Outriders, Hogwarts Legacy, and even the already far-off Pragmata get pushed again. However as many people ought to already know, if delaying a recreation ensures a greater product, builders ought to take the entire time they want.
When Riders Republic ultimately crosses the end line, search for it on PlayStation 5, Xbox Sequence X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC.
