Upcoming rugby video game, Rugby Challenge 3, is set to receive some news, a trailer, and some new details regarding the release date of the highly-anticipated game “very soon”.
According to a new Tweet from developer Wicked Witch Software, who took over work on the game from New Zealand developer Sidhe, who worked on Rugby Challenge 1 and 2, fans can expect an update on the game’s arrival date shortly.
In the absence news from @trublugames we can say that the game is finished, trailer is made, boxes done, and hope it is released very soon!

Rugby Challenge 3, which is set for release on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, never had a firm release date, however the initial release window was mid-to-late October 2015. A delay for the game was then announced.
Hopefully the delay will only boost the quality of Rugby Challenge 3 which, given the previous games in the franchise, has a lot of potential to be something special.
Rugby Challenge 3 will bring some new features to the series, as the game is set to include a Be A Pro mode, a Fan-hub to allow players to create their own players and teams, the Super Rugby, ITM Cup and Currie Cup tournaments and team licenses, and for the first-time in a video game, Sevens rugby.
It’s also interesting to note that this is the fourth rugby-oriented game coming out this year, with Rugby Challenge 3, Rugby World Cup 2015, as well as Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which will feature Sevens rugby.
