Ubisoft have announced that their upcoming shooter, Rainbow Six Siege, has been delayed to December 1st. A statement reads:
“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 think it’s the right call.”
Rainbow Six Siege was originally slated for release on October 13th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and, although only a minor delay, Ubisoft clearly felt the need for the extra development time in order to allow for a more polished experience at launch. Ubisoft went on to confirm that the Rainbow Six Siege beta will remain unchanged, and is scheduled to begin on September 24th.
“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.”
