Rainbow Six Siege delayed from October release
If you were itching to go on a terrohunt in the upcoming Rainbow Six Siege, like we did at this year’s E3, your wait just got a little longer. Ubisoft has announced today that they’ve delayed the title from its original release date of October 13 until December 1. They wrote the following on their official site:
“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.’
“With that in mind, 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, 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.’
“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.”
Inspired by the reality of counter terrorist operatives across the world, Rainbow Six Siege invites players to master the art of destruction. Intense close quarters confrontations, high lethality, tactics, team play, and explosive action are at the center of the experience. Breach enemy strongholds with new tactical measures or fortify your own with defensive resources in both sides of sieges, a brand-new mode of assault combat for the “Rainbow Six” series. Change the landscape of your assault with an unprecedented level of environmental destruction. Walls can be shattered, and floors and ceilings can be breached. Mastering the element of destruction is the key to victory.
Rainbox Six Siege will debut on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC at launch.
