Rainbow Six Siege 'unexpected bug' delays next update0 Comments
The next patch for Ubisoft's team-based shooter Rainbow Six Siege has hit a snag, delaying it for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 while an "unexpected bug" is being dealt with.
The update 2.3 was meant to deter cheating and improve spawn points — along with other balance tweaks and updates — but an unforeseen issue causing longer-than-intended wait times for ranked matches forced Ubisoft to hold off on releasing the patch to consoles. While the PC version has been fixed, there is no set date for a console update.
"While we have seen improvements on queue time after this update, it is not up to our standards," Ubisoft said of the issue on its forums. "We are still working on the issue and we will communicate any updates on our progress. Due to these findings from patch 2.3 on PC, we will be temporarily delaying 2.3 on console in order to resolve this issue before deployment."
Well this is certainly not a good look for Ubisoft. These patches are supposed to alleviate gameplay issues, not add more to them. I hope Ubi can get this matter taken care of quickly and the update comes to the console soon, because this kind of problem could kill a successful online community if it's not fixed shortly.
