Ubisoft have revealed via their Rainbow Six Siege blog that the title will be delayed somewhat, missing its October 13th release date but still hitting the 2015 schedule. The game will now release on December 1st.
Firstly on the blog post, Ubisoft thanked fans for taking part in closed alphas, testing environments and live demos, and showed their appreciation for all feedback given.
“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.”
Based on that, Ubisoft felt that due to the feedback they’ve received, and based on their own internal tests, they felt there are adjustments and improvements that can be made, including improvements to the co-op experience across all game modes, weapon and gadget balancing,
This will result in a December 1st release date in all regions, across all planned platforms. The already planned beta due to take place on September 24th, so if you have previously been made a part of it, you can still look forward to that.
Will Rainbow Six Siege’s delay bother you, or are you happy that Ubisoft are taking the time to polish their shooter instead of patching it after release? Silly question, eh?
