Rainbow Six Siege delayed to December
Rainbow Six Siege won't be hitting its Oct. 13 release date, instead, the game is scheduled for a Dec. 1 release in all regions.
The delay is intended to give the team more time to improve "the co-op experience across all game modes, weapon and gadget balancing, as well as menu and interface navigation," according to a blog post from Ubisoft.
The Rainbow Six Siege beta will still launch on time Sept. 24, Ubisoft added, with the delay providing the team with more time to test network elements like infrastructure and matchmaking.
The decision to delay the game was spurred in part by both internal playtesting and gameplay sessions at both E3 and Gamescom, according to Ubisoft.
