Rainbow Six: Siege Delayed To December
Rainbow Six Siege has been delayed to 1 December, 2015, Ubisoft has announced.
The game, previously scheduled to launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 13 October, has been pushed so Ubisoft can continue to balance the game. The closed beta is still scheduled to go live on 24 September as planned.
“This wasn’t an easy decision,” said Ubisoft in a press release, “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,” Ubisoft added.
This puts Siege in something of a tricky position. It will now arrive after every major FPS release. If it had landed in October as planned, it would have launched ahead of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3, Star Wars: Battlefront and Halo 5: Guardians.
