Ubisoft delayed their upcoming first-person shooter, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege from October 2015 to December 2015.
“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,” said Ubisoft.
The delay doesn’t affect the closed beta which is due to begin on September 24, 2015 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
“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.
We understand that many of you are excited to get your hands on the final game, but as gamers ourselves we know that quality comes first and we are committed to delivering the best game possible,” the firm added.
The game is “inspired by the reality of counter terrorist operatives across the world, Tom Clancy’s 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.
The multiplayer gameplay of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege sets a new bar for intense firefights and expert strategy in the rich legacy of past Rainbow Six games.”
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will launch December 1, 2015 for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
