Ha! The reason is it is Ubisoft. ONE WEEK before the new operators and new map in Rainbow Six Siege were about to be released, they suddenly decided to delay it and release 'operation health', an entire season dedicated to fixing bugs and problems in the game (ironically creating even more problems!). Ya know, something they should be doing regardless!

Never trust anything Ubisoft says until you actually see it in the game/in your hands.

Look on the bright side... at least they didn't charge you for 'operation health'.... right?

Maybe they liked the good feedback about origins and want more of that.

Wouldn't it be great if they aimed long & regularly released early instead of the opposite???

Looks like they've definitely learned their lessons from AC Unity.

Would rather a delayed product over a broken one. I kinda feel like Ubisoft are the lesser evil atm, especially after AC Origins which revived my love for the franchise

Hmm, hopefully doesn't end up in RDR2 territory.
