Ubisoft has announced it is delaying Rainbow Six Siege until December 1st from the original release date of October 13th. The closed beta will still go ahead on September 24th, with the results of that allowing Ubisoft to implement any changes without having to rush for October. The decision came after extensive internal testing and feedback from player hands on at industry events.
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.
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.
Better this than releasing a game that requires a huge patch to fix it on day one.
