Ubisoft’s upcoming Rainbow Six: Siege title has been delayed until 1 December for more time to make ‘adjustments and improvements’ to the game.
Originally scheduled for October, a short statement on the Ubisoft corporate blog confirms that the title will be pushed back a couple more months.
“Based on the [Rainbow Six: Siege] feedback we’ve received, and based on our own internal tests, we felt there are adjustments and improvements we can make,” the post reads. The list of areas under consideration for improvement runs quite long, perhaps going to way towards explaining why a delay is necessary.
It includes “improving the co-op experience across all game modes, weapon and gadget balancing, as well as menu and interface navigation”. Later in the piece, “infrastructure and matchmaking” get a nod for some improvements too.
The release delay will not affect the launch of the closed beta, which is intended to go ahead as planned from 24 September.
