Posted on June 15, 2013, Ian Miles Cheong Ubisoft: Rainbow 6 is Coming to Next-Gen Platforms
The title of Rainbow 6: Patriots may have been shelved, but Ubisoft still has plans to continue the Rainbow 6 franchise with a title bound for the next-gen platform. They’re not ready to tell us what that is just yet, but they have confirmed that a game is currently in development.
Speaking to IGN, Ubisoft Senior VP of Sales and Marketing Tony Key stated that the company is “absolutely making another Rainbow 6.”
“We’ve already said so,” he said—saying so for perhaps the first time. “We just, as we enter this new generation, have to make sure we make the right game at the right time with the right feature sets.”
Like Watch Dogs, The Division, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, and The Crew, the game will be bound to next-gen platforms, but it won’t be released during the same time-frame due to the simple fact that they already have so many games in the works as it is.
“Sometimes you have to take a step back and go ‘you know, I’m seeing the possibilities, but it’s gonna take more time,’” Key added. “We don’t really have anything else to announce or say about Rainbow 6, but we will say it’s a really exciting project for us and we can’t wait to say more.”
