Rainbow Six Siege Open Beta Delayed Because The Game Keeps Breaking Down
Nevermind that it’s a little hilarious to have an open beta this week for a game releasing next week but now issues have arisen to prevent said open beta from going live. Again, we have less than a week to go until Rainbow Six Siege releases.
The kicker is that Ubisoft is still intent on releasing this open beta.

Ubisoft has announced that it is unable to put the open beta online yet due to serious matchmaking and server disconnect issues. As tends to happen when one is dealing with Ubisoft servers unfortunately.
“We’re currently seeing issues with matchmaking times and disconnection on all platforms,” community manager Jax explained via the Ubisoft forum.
“As such we’re postponing the Open Beta until a later time and keeping the game under Closed Beta status. We apologise for the delay and can assure you this is our top priority. We will keep everyone updated regularly as we continue to deploy improvements.”
The Rainbow Six Siege open beta was due to start yesterday and end on Sunday but it’s unlikely that it will happen at all at this point. Connectivity and matchmaking issues aren’t typically fixable within a day or two. We may see Ubisoft offer the open beta as a free demo next week with the option to buy Rainbow Six Siege. That could certainly work.
As it stands though, any version of Rainbow Six Siege has already been printed and packaged so if you were planning on picking the game up then I strongly suggest you wait until confirmation from Ubisoft that the issues have been resolved.
