It’s always the worst news to hear when your overly excited for a new game to be released, but sometimes it’s for the best and thats what Ubisoft announced today regarding Rainbow Six Siege, no longer will it be hitting shelves on October 13th instead being rescheduled for a later date of December 1st.
In a press release on Ubisofts Uniblog they discuss the reason for this decision stating that:
“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.”
The game has been tested a lot recently over open events.
“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.”
Don’t forget the closed beta thats due to start on September 24th which I myself have 4 places to execute precision kills, maybe of my own team? Which consists of both my brothers and my dad, time will tell.
“The closed beta for Rainbow Six Siege will still start on September 24, 2015 as planned, and the additional time will allow us to further test things like infrastructure and matchmaking. That extra testing and added polish will make for a higher-quality experience at launch.
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.”
So it looks like Ubisoft will be using this time to really balance and perfect their new title which I myself really don’t mind, considering the recent release of train wreck games with numerious bugs and huge day one patches lets hope Ubisoft really knock this one out of the park.
Did you sign up for the closed beta on IGN?
