Ubisoft has announced that the Rainbow Six Siege open beta, which was meant to go live today, has been delayed. The decision was made after the developers ran into issues with matchmaking times and disconnection on all platforms.
"We're currently seeing issues with matchmaking times and disconnection on all platforms," said Ubisoft. "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."
Ubisoft has not revealed how long will the beta be delayed, but considering that the game releases next week, it's surely only a few days.
The Rainbow Six Siege open beta will give players access to 14 operators, and three different maps: Kanal, Hereford and House. Three game modes can be played across any of these maps: Bomb, Secure Area, and Disarm Bomb. Unfortunately, any progression made during the open beta won't carry over to the full game.
Rainbow Six Siege releases on the 1st of December on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
