Whether itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 peopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hands and listening to what they have to say helps us understand how we can improve their experience, and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d like to thank everyone whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s taken part in the process so far.
With that in mind, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve decided to push the release date of Rainbow Six Siege to December 1, 2015 for all regions. This wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t an easy decision, but based on the feedback weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re taking a little more time to make these changes, and we think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the right call.
The closed beta for Rainbow Six Siege will still start on September 24, 2015 as planned, and the additional time will allow us to further test things like infrastructure and matchmaking. That extra testing and added polish will make for a higher-quality experience at launch.
We understand that many of you are excited to get your hands on the final game, but as gamers ourselves we know that quality comes first and we are committed to delivering the best game possible.
Bringing Rainbow Six Siege to life continues to be an incredible experience, and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d like to thank all fans for your feedback, support, and unwavering enthusiasm. We couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t make the game without you. We hope youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all excited for the upcoming closed beta on September 24.
