Rainbow Six Siege Planned for Next-Gen Platforms

Rainbow Six Siege Brand Director Alexandre Remy discusses the future of Ubisoft Montreal's successful competitive shooter.

In a recent interview with Rainbow Six Siege Brand Director Alexandre Remy, the future of the game, including sequel plans, its availability on next-gen platforms, and migration options have been unveiled.

Reported by Daily Star from the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Series Finals in Milan, Ubisoft Montreal does not have plans for a sequel. “We don’t want a sequel whatsoever,” Remy remarks, stomping on any hopes for a new iteration of the popular shooter.

However, the team behind Rainbow Six Siege would like the game to come to next-gen consoles. The dream is to have every player can play together. “The reason behind this is we don’t want to segregate our community between the different platforms,” explains Remy. “In an ideal world tomorrow, we’d love players from every platform to be able to play together. We are approaching next-gen with the same spirit.”

What about players who have already purchased Rainbow Six Siege on a PS4 or Xbox One but want to move on to the next generation of consoles when that time comes? According to Remy, Ubisoft Montreal is trying to find a way to give players that choice. “We’ve been asking how can we make the player base of Siege today be able to migrate — if they want to migrate, that is — but also make this cheaper [than buying a new, next-gen copy of the game] as much as possible or through backwards compatibility”

In other Rainbow Six Siege news, the Year 4 Season 2 update dubbed Phantom Sight is upon us. As per usual, this will include two new Operators; this time around, the sharply dressed Warden and stealthy Nøkk will be joining the ever-growing list of Operators. Instead of a new map, Kafe Dostoyevsky will be getting a rework.

Rainbow Six Siege is available right now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
