The Rainbow Six Siege open beta has been delayed

Ubisoft has delayed the open beta for Rainbow Six Siege, with just a week to go until the game’s release.

The open beta for Rainbow Six Siege was supposed to begin at 3PM GMT on November 25 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Unfortunately, things aren’t going to plan. Ubisoft has taken down the servers for all platforms in order to perform some essential maintenance.

After encountering several issues, the publisher has decided to postpone the open beta until further notice.

We do not yet know when the beta will be playable, the developers had the following to say in a recent post on the game’s forums:

“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.”

This is not the first time Rainbow Six Siege has encountered server issues.

A previous closed beta test was extended due to server maintenance, with players receiving double XP as compensation.

It is confirmed that the beta will run at 1080p on PS4 and 900p on the Xbox One. Ubisoft are still currently optimising the title before the final release.

Rainbow Six Siege will available for PS4, Xbox One and PC from December 1.
