Russia might be out of the Olympics next year, but not the video game version! 


Ubisoft says that, despite being banned for cheating, Russia will stay in its winter sports game "Steep Road to the Olympics." It's an expansion to the 2016 game "Steep" and it was released just a few days ago -- on Dec. 5th, which coincidentally was the same day that Russia was banned from the Olympics for widespread doping. Talk about bad timing!


Ubisoft told Kotaku, though, that "there are no existing plans to patch Russia out of Steep Road to the Olympics." 

It's worth noting, though, that some Russian athletes still might compete in the Olympics, just under a neutral uniform and without the Russian flag or anthem.
