Publisher Ubisoft and developer Ubisoft Annecy have announced that Riders Republic will getting delayed until later in 2021.
The game was announced last year and was set to launch on February 25 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC. The team says they need more time to deliver the best experience.
This is just the latest game from Ubisoft to be delayed as the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake was delayed from January to March and Far Cry 6 was delayed from March to later in 2021. It’s safe to assume that even more game delays will occur in 2021 as developers work from home due to the current pandemic.
In September, we gave you a first look at our massive multiplayer playground in Riders Republic. We promised an action-packed outdoor sports park, filled with all-out mass races with more than 50 fellow Riders on next-gen consoles, a variety of diverse activities, and insane stunts. We can’t wait to have you traverse our vibrant world and live out your own Rider’s fantasy.
Today, we want to let you know that we have made the decision to move our release to later this year. This additional time will allow our passionate team to deliver the best fun fueled experience to our players.
Thank you so much for your support and understanding. Stay safe and get ready to join the madness of riders republic soon!
