Here’s what they said about the delay:
This wasn’t an easy decision, but based on the feedback we’ve received, and based on our own internal tests, we felt there are adjustments and improvements we can make, including improving the co-op experience across all game modes, weapon and gadget balancing, as well as menu and interface navigation. We’re taking a little more time to make these changes, and we think it’s the right call.
The closed beta (get your code here) will still start on September 24, giving Ubisoft Montreal more time to “further test things like infrastructure and matchmaking. That extra testing and added polish will make for a higher-quality experience at launch.”
“We understand that many of you are excited to get your hands on the final game,” Ubisoft adds, “but as gamers ourselves we know that quality comes first and we are committed to delivering the best game possible.”
