We jokingly said that the ‘word of the year‘ for the gaming industry in 2021 was ‘delay’ when Ubisoft announced that Rainbow Six Extraction would pushed from September 2021 all the way to January 2022.

Riders Republic, the new EXTREME sports online competition game from Ubisoft also received a much shorter delay, from September 2 to October 28th, which really isn’t all that bad. Unless that happens to be the day when the new Call of Duty hits. Uh oh.

Here’s Ubisoft’s official statement:

We can’t wait for you all to hit the Republic in our upcoming beta! This will be the first time you get to go hands-on in this massive multiplayer playground and we are looking forward to hearing what you think.

To ensure we can deliver the best game for all players, we’ve made the tough decision to delay our release date from September 2 to October 28. This will give us more time to fine tune the experience and give you another chance to jump in before launch and provide feedback.

We’ll have more to share soon, so stay tuned!

Speaking of the upcoming beta, there’s still time to register for it! If you missed the deep dive from last month, give it a watch. Riders Republic looks like an absolute blast.
