Ubisoft details Rainbow Six: Siege updates for January

News Xbox One

Ubisoft today outlined its next major set of technical updates for Rainbow Six: Siege following a period of “degradation” over the Christmas period.

In a post on the official Rainbow Six forum, Community Manager UbiEpi detailed some of the key issues being addressed.

  • Error 41 – Most recurrent PvP connection error
  • Extended matchmaking connection time – Irregularly long loading time for some players (especially in Ranked).
  • Failed data synchronization – Failed data screen resulting, in some cases, to no renown being issued at the end of a match.
  • Loading screen freeze (smoke background) – Some players get stuck in a screen when loading a match.
  • Game exploit in which Defenders are able to go outside during the preparation phase (bypassing the red wall).
  • Party of 4 Matchmaking – Some users experience much longer matchmaking times if they try to matchmaking with a party of 4 players.

Fixes for these issues are to be spread across two patches dropping this month, the first of which will be available today for PC users with console versions coming next week.

This comes before the game’s first major content update in early February, introducing two new operators, a new map, and additional in-game content.
