Last week, Ubisoft revealed the system specs for the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which will release on November 19.
Rainbow Six Siege was announced last year, being developed exclusively for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. In May of this year, Ubisoft announced that the game would be delayed to October, but in August the publisher decided to push back the release to December 1st. The Siege development team posted a message regarding the delay on the Ubisoft Blog:
Whether it’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 people’s hands and listening to what they have to say helps us understand how we can improve their experience, and we’d like to thank everyone who’s taken part in the process so far.
With that in mind, we’ve decided to push the release date of Rainbow Six Siege to December 1, 2015 for all regions. 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. We’re taking a little more time to make these changes, and we think it’s the right call.
