Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft has decided to postpone plans for an open beta for Rainbox Six: Siege on the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The open beta for the upcoming tactical shooter was to have started today and last until Nov. 29.

In a statement on the game's official forums, Ubisoft said:

"We're currently seeing issues with matchmaking times and disconnection on all platforms. As such we're postponing the Open Beta until a later time and keeping the game under Closed Beta status. We apologize for the delay and can assure you this is our top priority. We will keep everyone updated regularly as we continue to deploy improvements."

There's no word on when the open beta will begin, but the full game is due to be released on Tuesday, December 1, so Ubisoft doesn't have a lot of time. The open beta is supposed to give gamers free access to three of the game's levels, along with several modes and 14 out of the game's 20 operators.
