Hey Riders,

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!

As revealed during Riders Republic’s September announcement, the extreme sports outing is from Ubisoft Annecy, the studio behind Steep and is set across seven different U.S. national parks and other landmarks brought together into an open world. Players can choose from skiing, snowboarding, downhill biking, wingsuiting, and rocket wingsuiting to traverse and explore the environment alongside other players.

Late last year, Ubisoft also revealed how Riders Republic and a host of other games would be enhanced for the PS5 and Xbox Series X and S.
