In a statement on the Ubisoft forums, the developer has revealed that a delay is coming to the Rainbow Six: Siege Beta. They note:
“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.”
They go on to specify some of the errors they have been receiving:
“Game sessions are not starting properly and we’ve encountered server issues, leading to failed connections. We’ve identified the root issue that was introduced after the Technical Test while fixing a separate aspect of the game. A fix is currently under test and will be deployed within the next few hours.”
Despite all this though, Ubisoft is confident that this delay of the open Beta will not affect the release of the game at all:
“We are confident the game will work as intended since the known issue will be fixed soon. Therefore the launch will not be impacted by this issue.”
If further delays arise, we will let you know.
