Rainbow Six Siege Open Beta has Been Delayed

Beta testing us used to find any problems in a game before it heads towards release. Normally though an Open Beta would at least start before problems would be found.

Today should have been the start of Rainbow Six Siege’s big Open Beta session, but it looks like there are problems that are going to hold it up, as revealed on Ubisoft’s forum:

“Hi everyone.
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.”

While this is obviously going to be annoying for people who are looking forward to trying out the game, at least Ubisoft have found a problem and are working on finding a solution. On a positive note, at least they have found it now before the release of the full game, which would have obviously caused many more problems for players.

When these problems have been dealt with, people who try out the Rainbow Six Siege Open Beta will have access to three maps – Kanal, Hereford, and House. Three game modes will be available which include two Pvp modes – Bomb and Secure, with a PvE Disarm Bomb mode which can be played by 1-5 players who must take out terrorist units.
