Ubisoft announced in a blog post that the upcoming Rainbow Six: Siege has been delayed from its original release date in October, to its new date of December 1, 2015 in all regions.
“Whether it’s been through playtests in our studios, the closed alpha, or recent hands-on demos at events like E3 or Gamescom, player feedback has been essential to the development of Rainbow Six Siege. Getting the game in people’s hands and listening to what they have to say helps us understand how we can improve their experience, and we’d like to thank everyone who’s taken part in the process so far.”
While this may disappoint fans, Ubisoft says it is to continue implementing player feedback and improvements of their closed beta, which is scheduled for September 24th.
“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.”
