Rainbow Six: Siege delayed to the end of the year

Ubisoft today confirmed that Rainbow Six: Siege will not hit its 13 October release date.

Instead, the title will be delayed until 1 December.

“We’ve decided to push the release date of Rainbow Six Siege to December 1, 2015 for all regions,” Ubisoft confirmed via its blog. “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.

“The closed beta for Rainbow Six Siege will still start on September 24, 2015 as planned, and the additional time will allow us to further test things like infrastructure and matchmaking. That extra testing and added polish will make for a higher-quality experience at launch.

“We understand that many of you are excited to get your hands on the final game, but as gamers ourselves we know that quality comes first and we are committed to delivering the best game possible.

“Bringing Rainbow Six Siege to life continues to be an incredible experience, and we’d like to thank all fans for your feedback, support, and unwavering enthusiasm. We couldn’t make the game without you. We hope you’re all excited for the upcoming closed beta on September 24.”

Rainbow Six: Siege will be available from 1 December on Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC.
