In a blog update this morning from Ubisoft Montreal, the Rainbow Six Siege development team has confirmed that their upcoming title has been delayed.
“We’ve decided to push the release date of Rainbow Six Siege to December 1, 2015 for all regions. This wasn’t an easy decision, but based on the feedback we’ve received, and based on our own internal tests, we felt there are adjustments and improvements we can make, including improving the co-op experience across all game modes, weapon and gadget balancing, as well as menu and interface navigation. We’re taking a little more time to make these changes, and we think it’s the right call.”
Ubisoft Montreal still plans to go ahead with the title’s closed beta beginning September 24th. The team hopes the additional time will aid in further testing for the matchmaking and infrastructure within Rainbow Six Siege. Kudos though to Ubisoft for going with the 8 week delay. It will assuredly bring us a better product as opposed to one shipped broken as many publishers do these days.
Rainbow Six Siege is now set for December 1st on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
