It is not enough to make free games to meet success: Ubisoft has been learning this the hard way for some time.
The French publisher wanted to change its strategy by successively launching two free games with diametrically opposed concepts. Thus, in 2020 Hyper Scape was released, a free battle royale that never seduced players and whose servers were stopped last April.

For the past few days it’s the other free to play game that’s been rumored to be dropped: it’s the right season since Ubisoft has already dropped Ghost Recon Frontline, Splinter Cell VR and two other as yet unannounced titles…
According to rumors, it is Roller Champions that could thus be dropped… The information was reported by Jeff Grubb, but Ubisoft quickly denied the situation. The insider mentioned an abandonment just after the season 3 of the title.
Ubisoft’s game is not as successful as expected despite a fairly popular concept in the US and almost no competition from roller derby games.
Even though Ubisoft denied the abandonment in the coming weeks, the title is therefore not off the hook for all that and it could be sacrificed before the end of the year if it does not gain more popularity.
