Ubisoft’s latest tactical FPS, Rainbow Six Siege, has been in development for some time now, and with its full presentation at E3 2015 set to be its last, we have received news that the title will face a minor delay. The game was originally set to release on October 13, but has now been pushed back to December 1.
Ubisoft has released a statement on the matter, stating, “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.”
With the game’s closed beta still planned to go ahead on September 24, this delay doesn’t seem to be anything major. A game being delayed for a few weeks to polish up the experience is always a good thing, especially due to Ubisoft’s recent history of releasing poorly optimized, downright broken games.
Rainbow Six Siege will release for PS4, Xbox One and PC on December 1.
