Roller Champions should skate out next year

When Ubisoft announced Roller Champions with great fanfare and a public alpha test at E3 2019 but only a few months later announced a delay and went a bit quiet, I thought it might join the ranks of their many seemingly-dead games. But those forgotten games are on: Gods & Monsters is due in December (even if it has a daft new name), the space game teased in Watch Dogs 2 is out next month, Ubi even swear Skull & Bones is still happening, and now they’ve announced Roller Champions ‘rolly’ (really) will launch in 2021.

Ubisoft CEO apologises to people they didn’t protect

Three hours before tonight’s Ubisoft Forward stream, their latest blast of announcements and trailers, CEO Yves Guillemot issued a public video apology to people hurt by the company’s failure to protect them from abusive employees. This year, accusations of sexual harassment, abuse, and discrimination were made against numerous Ubisoft employees and studios, including several high-ranking people. If Guillemot’s apology video was planned to clear the air so today can just be feel-good marketing, it’s unfortunate that only seven hours prior, a new report came out with allegations of abusive behaviour at Nadeo, the Ubisoft studio who make Trackmania.
