Rainbow Six Siege will receive an update that makes it easier for players to match with others who are near their rank. It intends to match more balanced teams when playing online.

Ubisoft announced the update on its forums, saying it will arrive on February 23 during an estimated 30-minute period of maintenance. Xbox One and PS4 players will see the maintenance start at 1 AM PST, while PC users will have to wait until 7:30 AM for their version of the game to update.

The current matchmaking situation has large "Skill Rank" relaxation increments with no limit on how different in skill teams can be. This results in matches where one team can be full of high-skilled players, while their opponent is comprised of beginners. Tomorrow's update hopes to fix this problem, though it could lead to longer matchmaking times.

In other Rainbow Six Siege news, the team-based shooter's upcoming DLC was recently teased. And if you wanted to host custom games on dedicated servers, the last patch made that possible. It also fixed numerous issues including headshots not registering properly.
