Quite a very unfortunate delay for a certain game within the video game industry has been announced earlier this week, and that title is, Rainbow Six Siege.

Originally slated for a worldwide release on October 13th this year, apparently things aren’t going to smoothly as far as late development goes, as today Ubisoft has announced that the delay is pinned to adjustments and improvements within all game modes. The game has officially been delayed to December 1st of this year. While it is unfortunate that we’ll be getting it much later within the year, we can be grateful it wasn’t pushed into 2016 as a Spring release like many other titles originally slated for a 2015 release.

The official statements explains “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 multiplayer beta is still scheduled for September 24th, roughly only a month away, so that’s a plus. The beta will definitely give developers further opportunities to see what needs more tweaking on the game. It’s great to see developers now pushing games further to ensure they will actually be functional at release. We really do not need a repeat of last year.
