Riders Republic, the ambitious sports sandbox from Ubisoft originally scheduled to release on 25th February, has removed its helmet and taken a chill pill until “later this year”.
The development team shared the news on Twitter, although it opted for a white background as opposed to the customary yellow we’ve all been trained to associate these kind of updates with.

The studio said that the additional time “will allow our passionate team to deliver the best fun fuelled experience to our players”.
There’s no word of a new release window or when we can expect more information, but this is the second delay of the week after Hogwarts Legacy was pushed back yesterday. Expect it to become a trend as the industry continues to wrestle with coronavirus.
