Last night it was announced that Rainbow 6: Patriots has been cancelled and replaced with Rainbow 6: Siege.
“It’s not in development anymore,” said Alexandre Remy, Rainbow Six brand director. “The main decision was some months after Patriots was announced in 2011 that was the first moment we knew the first generation of new consoles were coming. So obviously at that moment and for a franchise such as Rainbow we needed to decide if we could make something for next-gen and we were already pretty advanced in the development of Patriots.
“It would require doing a lot of extra things,” he said.
Instead, we were shown a trailer for Rainbow 6: Siege, which showed a team battle (Raven v Rogue), with players fighting over a hostage, including the interactive and destructible environments that are a signature of the series. It will be a game all about building up your own defenses and concurrently breaking down the other team’s in order to survive their attacks.
