Rainbow Six: Siege will miss its October 13th release date. Now slated for a December 1st, nearly 2 months later. Rainbow Six will move well past one of the biggest weekends for sales in Black Friday. Due to a number of reasons including feedback from alpha testing and various playtests Ubisoft has decided that the game will benefit from a delay.
“We’ve decided to push the release date of Rainbow Six Siege to December 1, 2015 for all regions. 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.”
There will be a beta that will start on September 24th that will provide Ubisoft Montreal more information on how to improve their game. The delay is a bit of a surprise, but if Ubisoft can make good on their word and improve Rainbow Six then I’m all for it.
