One of the biggest games on the consoles is still not in development, Ubisoft madaboutgaming thinks at this moment the next rainbow six can even take the Call of duty series' crown. Its been too long ubisoft we want rainbow six back.
yes please. i would LOVE another Rainbow Six.
And it will be gangsta!
I just realized today that I am tired of Call of Duty games! I can't wait for the next Rainbow Six game. Right now, I am looking forward to Ghost Recon, Socom 4 and Gears 3. @Elwenil... Don't worry, Rainbow has always been more about realism, so no arcadey crap. The only problems I have had with it is running at 30 fps, seemed a little too slow, and the aiming! Looking at the overhaul that the new Ghost recon has gotten, you gotta assume that Rainbow will come back better than ever! Rainbow six vegas was one of the best games this gen because that was a good game to help build your friends list up. We had a good group of over 40 people to play with and we all had our specialties. We had a girl who would tear your ass up with the 870. We had tactics for entering a room that was covered by the opposing team and all kinds of sh*t. Once Vegas 2 came out, the group kinda slowly broke apart. Then everyone kinda went in their own direction. At least we played together for about 2 years though. I have not played a game since then that encouraged me to talk with people and set up strategies. The closest was Socom Confrontation, but if you make a small mistake, the b*tches kick you out of the match! Now, I rarely bother talking to people because they are mostly winey b*tches. I only put my headset on so I don't have to hear their annoying voices through my tv. I think 2011 will be better, because even though there were some good games such as GoW 3, Halo Reach, CoD, BO, Red Dead Redemption, etc., I still feel unimpressed because there are no games I feel I need to play! I'm probably alone with that, but that's how I feel anyway!
The only problem with another Rainbow Six is the direction that all FPS games seem to be drifting this gen and that's toward arcade bullshit. If they are going to pop out another CoD4 clone then they can keep it. Personally I would much prefer that the game go back to it's roots like the original game, Rogue Spear and Raven Shield. The Vegas games were ok, but lost a lot of the appeal that longtime R6 players enjoyed. @TacosRcool, There ain't a goddamn thing "gangsta" about Rainbow Six, thankfully.
Black Arrow. I cut my teeth on that FPS MP. Man, I still have cafe and airport memorized.
I love the original first couple of games on PC... I'd spend hours on MSN Zone playing R6 & R6 Rogue Spear. By far my most played & my top game MP game of all time. That's was when FPS games were pure! Even the Quake & Tribes series were pure as well. Back then it was all about winning the match, not worrying about your k/d ratio or having perks that allow the computer AI to do half your kills for you... you had to do it all on your own!
those were back in the days when fps gaming was untainted. this gen has ripped the soul right out of fps gaming. It's depressing. btw ask any r6/rogue spear fan what they think of r6 vegas and you better bring a flamesuit thick enough to withstand the fiery pits of hell itself.
I would really* really* love a new R6 game. I was just talking to my friend about R6 Vegas 1 today. Loved that game.
Vegas 1 was my favorite R6 of all times. Love the co-op and the multi-player.
Yeah Ubisoft, I'm getting real impatient of your lack of awareness of whats hot and whats not. Rainbow Six HOT.....Lazer Tag NOT.
As long as its. A real rainbow six not that garbage Vegas spinoff.
I want the next rainbow six too. I hope they make one with the cryengine 3.
That UE3 has got to go! The CryEngin3 would kiss some serious arse!
A new Rainbow six would be great
The new Ghost Recon hasn't even come out yet. So I'm guessing we'll see a new R6 towards the end of 2012 or early 2013.
I'm not vaguely interested in GR, it looks to have too much technology in it. Cloaking and rocket launchers on your shoulder... give me a break.
i dont remember seeing rocket launchers on your shoulders in the new ghost recon but it sounds bad ass. and cloaking is always great. im looking forward to future soldier. new rainbow six should definitely be good though. its a good series.
Who needs rainbow when you have Ghost Recon: future soldier which is IMO a mix of both.
Ghost recon is nothing like Rainbow 6 sorry.
lol nothing says tactical challenge like turning invisible and avoiding braindead AI would wouldnt see you anyway... and THEN breaking into a scene from WW2 beach storming! woah thats tactical :D
The last time Ghost Recon was a good game was when they came out with Jungle Storm on PS2 and Island Thunder on Xbox.
Please, make the next Rainbow Six more like Raven Shield and less Vegas.
The thing is, it's probably undergoing some kind of "reboot" and god knows what's coming out the other side. I'd like a realistic, SWAT4ish experience myself. But if Ghost Recon is anything to go by, they are probably setting the new R6 in freaking space.
And while we're at it, maybe bring back some characters from the original games (and books). Ding Chavez has to come back somehow!
Leave it to next gen i say
They'll focus on Assassin's Creed right now. It's making them the most money. We may not see a Rainbow Six til next gen or maybe end of this gen.
They would be stupid not to with how huge FPS games are with this gen. But then again, Ubi hasn't been known for smart decisions when it comes to Red Storm's masterpiece series.
After ubisoft bought the franchise from Red Storm Ent., it started going down hill, because the guys from RSE had less & less input as the years went by.
IMO R6V2 was the best FPS on consoles so far. With the customization, great cover system, the need for actual skill, and terrorist hunt there is just not a game that has done anything better then it.
I liked the 4 player campaign co-op on Vegas 1 better though.
To all the old school R6 players, how were the Vegas games so differently? Those were the only two I've played.
The only thing that was really different was that there was no cover system on Rainbow Six 3 and Lockdown.
None of the classic R6 games had any sort of cover system. You took cover yourself or you stood there like a bullet sponge. Your choice. R6 was the birth of tactical FPS games IMO and the series needs to get back to it's roots so we can forget the mistake made with the Vegas games, Lockdown and the console adaptations. To be perfectly honest, I really miss the planning stage and the more exotic missions in games like R6 Rogue Spear. The latest games have wasted the original game down to what is basically a glorified SWAT team with arcade gameplay. 99% of the players that love the Vegas games would not make it in Raven Shield.
How about a new Brothers in Arms while your at it. I love squad based tactical shooters.
but didn't like the second one because theymake players run really fast !!! >.< ... i would love to play another rainbow game :P ..
That's what I hate about the Vegas games NO BACKING UP OF SAVE DATA!!!
Where is anything even remotely decent...? Rainbows don't count. sorry
aren't they busy creating fitness games for kinect?
yes we want another Rainbow Six game.. Last two game was cool. especially terrorist hunt mode was very cool.. we missed Rainbow Six. Back On Me !!. GO GO GO !!
I'd love a new Rainbow Six game. Vegas was great but unfortunately wasn't that popular. I don't believe Rainbow Six could ever compete with COD though for one simple fact... COD has mass appeal i.e. hardcore gamers play it but so too do casual players. On Rainbow Six, Casual players get destroyed because it's a more realistic tactical shooter. At least on COD a casual player can get some kills, have some fun, use killstreaks etc. I saw so many people join our rooms on Vegas and never get a kill before quitting. I do really want a new R6 game though but perhaps more black arrow than Vegas. Also Vegas 2 was a complete cash in but was still fun to play (cus it was identical to Vegas)
The good old days of Rainbow Six Vegas 2... Man, I kind of miss this game now..
I believe new Rainbow Six like Rogue Spear and Raven Shield + A few elements of Vegas, but not the Arcady ones that distract from realism.
was very very good. It allowed for team dynamics that the OG vets say were missing from the single player. But most of the time in V2 online you coordinated how to bring down people held tightly in a room. And if you didn't talk, you got shot.
love rainbow six games and ghost recon games more tactical than cod. Hope to see how the new ghost recon turns out but i would love to see a new rainbow six game.
