Ubisoft says that Roller Champions isn’t going to be canceled and that it will continue to support the game with more content and fixes.
“Let’s clear it out of the way first, Roller Champions isn’t getting canceled, 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 improvements, and that supersedes all other priorities,” Ubisoft said in a statement on Twitter.
The game’s first and current season, Disco Fever, will be extended and an upcoming patch will include cross-invites, which allows players to bring in friends who play Roller Champions on other platforms. Additionally, the team is trying to fix issues and address player feedback before moving on to the game’s next season.
Ubisoft’s statement is seemingly a response to rumors that began circulating saying that Roller Champions would be canceled after its third season.
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 far as content is concerned, we can tell you that we’ve got exciting stuff planned for the net seasons,” explains the development team. “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.”
Roller Champions is a free-to-play game that launched on May 25, 2022, for PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. In our Roller Champions first impressions, we said, “Though it’s a solid start to what could be my next team-based competitive addiction, it also feels in danger of becoming repetitive rather quickly.”
