Rainbow Six: Siege was due to kick off another beta test today, though this time it would be open to everyone. That is concerning enough given that the game actually releases next week but now the beta itself has been pushed back due to issues on the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For now, the game is still under ‘closed beta' status while the issues are resolved.
In an update on the Ubisoft forum, the game's community manager explained that the team is “currently seeing issues with matchmaking times and disconnection on all platforms”. As a result of that, the open beta is being postponed until “a later time”.
The open beta is supposed to contain three maps and three game modes two of which are PvP while the other is a PvE mode. There will be around a year of free updates to the game with new maps and such, though there will also be a season pass involved.
For now, we don't know when the open beta will take place but it seems that Ubisoft is really trying to stick to its 1st of December release date for this game.

KitGuru Says: This isn't great news for those looking forward to Rainbow Six Siege. Having an open beta less than a week before launch is also not a great move, particularly if there are things that need testing for issues.
