Rainbow Six Siege has been delayed to December, Ubisoft has announced.

The multiplayer-focused shooter is due out on 1st December 2015. It had been due out 13th October.

"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," Ubisoft said.

"We're taking a little more time to make these changes, and we think it's the right call."

Meanwhile, the closed beta will still start on 24th September 2015 as planned. "The additional time will allow us to further test things like infrastructure and matchmaking," Ubisoft said. "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."
