Rainbow Six Siege

Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 gamers will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the final version of Rainbow Six: Siege. The game's developer and publisher Ubisoft announced today that the revival of the Rainbox Six tactical shooter franchise will now be released on December 1, rather than October 13.

In a blog post, Ubisoft said:

"Whether it's been through playtests in our studios, the closed alpha, or recent hands-on demos at events like E3 or Gamescom, player feedback has been essential to the development of Rainbow Six Siege. Getting the game in people's hands and listening to what they have to say helps us understand how we can improve their experience, and we'd like to thank everyone who's taken part in the process so far."

"With that in mind, we've decided to push the release date of Rainbow Six Siege to December 1, 2015 for all regions. 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 closed beta test for Rainbox Six: Siege, which will be available for people who pre-order the game, will still begin as scheduled on September 24
