Rainbow Six Siege release delayed until December

"We felt there are adjustments and improvements we can make"

Ubisoft has made the decision to delay the release date of Rainbow Six Siege to December 1 for all regions. The game was originally due to go on sale on October 13.

"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," Ubisoft said in a statement.

The planned closed beta for Rainbow Six Siege will still start on September 24.

This delaying tactic isn't hugely unusual for AAA development, or for Ubisoft. Watch Dogs was originally planned for a November 2013 release but eventually hit shelves in May 2014, Assassin's Creed Unity saw a two week delay before going on sale. The Division, another Tom Clancy title, has seen a couple of delays and is now due in March 2016.
