Ubisoft have decided to delay their extreme sports title, Riders Republic, to later this year. A statement from the company was posted on their website, revealing that additional time is required to “deliver the best fun fuelled experience to our players.”
The game was originally scheduled to release on 25th February 2021, but has been delayed with just over a month until release. The game will now release some time in the latter half of 2021, but the exact release date has not been revealed.
The statement from Ubisoft reads:
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 fuelled 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!
