Sam Fisher is Coming to Rainbow Six Siege
Sam Fisher is making another comeback and this time around will be venturing over to Rainbow Six Siege.
Well, it’s official: Ubisoft is apparently dead-set on bringing Sam Fisher to every one of its properties except for, you know, Splinter Cell.
Revealed in a new trailer this afternoon, Ubisoft announced that Sam Fisher, the iconic protagonist from the Splinter Cell series, is now set to make his way to the world of Rainbow Six Siege. Fisher, who will seemingly go by the designation “Zero” in-game, will be the next operator added to Siege and will be made available as part of the Operation Shadow Legacy event. Further details on Fisher’s inclusion in the highly-popular multiplayer FPS weren’t given, but more information is said to drop this coming weekend on August 16 during the NA-Mini Major Finals.
While it may be surprising to see Fisher make his way to Rainbow Six Siege, this is actually something that Ubisoft has slightly teased that it has had an interest in for a bit now. Earlier this year, one of the game designers behind Siege hinted to us that we might start to see some guest characters from Ubisoft’s lineup make their way over to the game. Considering that Fisher is one of the more popular characters in Ubisoft’s portfolio, and he makes sense to fit into the world of Rainbow Six, it’s not too shocking to see him now being added to the shooter.
As for Fisher himself, the character’s latest stop in Siege is his latest in a long list of appearances. The Splinter Cell protagonist has notably popped up in other franchises such as Ghost Recon and Elite Squad in recent memory. Notably, a new Splinter Cell game itself has yet to be confirmed to be in development at Ubisoft, however.
Rainbow Six Siege is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. More information on Fisher’s addition to the game and Operation Shadow Legacy as a whole should be coming soon, so stay tuned.
