Another game has fallen victim to the curse of the delay: Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six: Siege. It’s not too bad, though, as Ubisoft has announced that the tactical shooter will be deploying this December 1st instead of October 13th.
For a moment we feared that yet another title was going to be on the back burner until 2016, but thankfully that’s not the case. Ubisoft explained that the delay was in response to feedback that the developers had recieved.
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.”
We’d much prefer a fully working game come a little later than have Ubisoft taint the franchise by shipping the title in an inferior state.
Rainbow Six Siege will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC from December 1st, 2015.
