So, you know how many games are delaying patches because of reasons relating to the pandemic? Some of these games delay patches the day before, or a few weeks to a month earlier. Well, Rainbow Six Siege just took it to another level!
Posted on the official Rainbow Six Siege Twitter account, they decided to delay a patch on the day of its release. The patch in question, Y5S2.3, was supposed to release on July 28th. A Maintenance tweet went out earlier in the day; however, it was followed by the tweet saying that the patch will be delayed "due to unforeseen circumstances."
