Rainbow 6 Patriots Pre-Orders Removed From GameStop

IGN - After two years, the retailer has removed Rainbow 6 from its system -- something it rarely does without reasons for concern. (PC, PS3, PS4, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Patriots, Xbox 360)

I was really looking forward to buying r6p. I loved rainbow 6 Vegas. It was a classic.

I see this going in a couple directions:

1) It's actually cancelled. The game never found a direction and got canned.

2) Ubisoft decided to turn it to a next gen title and decided to switch the title, meaning that Rainbow 6 doesn't exist as patriots, but some other sub title.

3) Maybe they decided to start over from scratch and change the game's direction, therefore delaying it indefinitely.

No matter what, I really hope it's not cancelled.

Anyone else got any ideas?

I hope it number 2 and pray that it isn't number 1.

If UBISoft has though me anything,when a Tom Clancy title is announced add 3-4 years after the original release date is announced.

Just going by the track record of the last 2 games, Ghost Recon , Splinter Cell.

Ghost Recon was a joke. By the time it came out I didn't care.

Vegas was awesome. I loved my online back around 2006. I wish I could have that initial buzz back with games like R6V.

Same here. I could play Attack & Defend on Calypso Casino for days.

I assume they are doing the same thing to it that they continue to do with every Tom Clancy title. Remove more tactical elements and replace it with instant kill buttons, small cramped desert settings, and generally have the games just play themselves.

They now live for the "I hated the old ________ games, but I really love this one" crowd, so I'm sure they are just making extra sure R6 continues along with this trend.

The funny thing is that Rainbow Six Vegas was dumbed down too, but it was still fun.

Also, Ghost Recon was dumbed down for Advanced Warfighter, but it was still amazing. You still had control of squadmates, had health packs, it was tactical but easier than the earlier ones. Future Solider was terrible.

Double Agent was dumbed down, but it was still Splinter Cell. Conviction was nothing like SPlinter cell.

This new Rainbow Six should just be called "Tom Clancy's Call of Duty".

I think one thing that is really bothering me that the games have started to morph into the same thing. Ghost Recon, originally, had huge maps where you attack objectives at different times, with two squads. Rainbow Six was smaller scale close quarter tactics, and you still had more people than in Vegas in your squard team. Splinter Cell was all about hiding in the shadows, utilizing gadgets, hiding bodies, etc.

Now, Ghost Recon is Rainbow Six is Splinter Cell. They have all started to blend together into one bland mass appeal object where the less the player has at his/her control = better, and there can't be enough explosive sequences of epicness. It's unfortunate in my opinion.

Everything is getting codified, it's sad.

Oh, and I failed to mention that Future Soldier underperformed and sold wayy less than Advanced Warfighter. They sold fewer copies and spent several years making it by catering to the cod crowd. What a waste.

hope it goes back to hardcore roots, before the dumbed down Vegas games

Rainbow Six 3 was the last great one
