The next installment in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six series has had gamers waiting patiently for over seven years, and now it seems we will all have to wait just a bit longer. Announced earlier today in a blog post by Ubisoft, the developers have decided to delay the initial release by a few months, after taking into consideration the fan feedback they've received from the closed alpha, along with the hands-on demos at 2015's E3 and Gamescom events.
Originally scheduled to launch October 13th on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, the developers have determined it would be for the best to push back the release, now planned for December 1st, across all regions. In the blog post, Ubisoft said that along with all of the feedback, and their own internal tests of the game, they personally felt there were some adjustments that could be made to improve the overall co-op experience across all modes, as well as tweaking the general balance of weapons, gadgets, and the menu/interface navigation.
Along with this news, Ubisoft said the upcoming beta will continue as planned, starting September 24th, for those that preorder Rainbow Six Siege. The full blog post made by Ubisoft can be read here.
