Ubisoft have decided to delay the open beta for the soon-to-be-released Rainbow Six: Siege due to last minute issues.
And it’s live now.
Updated 16:23 on 26th November
Ubisoft have released an updated statement on their Rainbow Six forum, suggesting that the game may be fixed ready for Open Beta tomorrow.
“Some platforms are still under maintenance but we are working to complete them as quickly as we can. We will be monitoring how the fixes impact the game experience throughout the night. We will give you another update tomorrow at 10AM EST. In the meantime, our Closed Beta continues.”
The beta was due to go live yesterday on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but Ubisoft posted this message on their site, explaining that the game would stay in Closed beta until they ironed out some bugs:
“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.”
Testing will continue on fixes to the closed beta and we’re expecting a further update at 3pm GMT today on whether the open beta will finally go live this week.
The full game is due to arrive on 1st December, under a week, but it seems Ubisoft are confident that with these fixes and anything they find in the open beta, everything will run smoothly for launch.
