With their closed beta for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Siege Six set to begin on September 25 2015, Ubisoft have confirmed that they will be offering local Australian servers for the game.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be using the Microsoft Azure data centres located in Australia, which they claim will “ensure players can enjoy an optimal online experience when the game is launched”. These data servers will be up and running for the Closed Beta test, and will be ready for when the full game launches December 1st 2015 on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gaming platforms.

Local servers have been a priority from day one. It is essential that Australian gamers get to experience the same online environment as players across the globe.

Ubisoft’s use of Microsoft Azure datacentres in Australia demonstrates Azure’s cross-platform capabilities and is great news for the gaming community who will enjoy the benefits of a locally hosted environment and support.
