DP: Ubisoft's acclaimed tactical 1st person shooter, Rainbow Six, hasn't seen the light of day for a while, since Rainbow Six: Vegas 2. It seems like Ubisoft may be working on the title, despite silence from Ubi about the series for some time now.
Tactical FPS at it's finest
Yeh awesome game, preferred RSV1 because I thought the maps were better but still RSV2 was a great game. New Splinter Cell, New RS, New Creed, SC HD. Seems it will be a good year for Ubi.
Don't forget the new Ghost Recon, as well. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, should be out this year.
Its about time
Not going to happen this year with GR coming out. It'll be 2012.
i lol at the peeps who still think ghost recon is coming this year :L ubi knew it tanks compared to rainbow six and shoved it aside :P oh yes its rainbow six timeeeee
For the guy who disagreed with FanOfGaming....Let me guess, Black Ops is more tactical huh?
Lol, must be an Activision activist.
at ITS finest
Who would disagree with you? lol I thought the cover system and recoil of the weapons in the latest 2 installments were almost perfect. I loved the MP in those games. Edit: @Joni-Ice, I've been thinking that lately. It seems as though you'll see 1 disagree on everyone who comments sometimes. Ridiculous...
Who you ask?.....The Disagree Clan (DC) These dude are everywhere. They are worse than Anonymous. You would never see a video from The Disagree Clan saying We Are Legion nonsense. No positive comment can hide from them. Hacking? Yeah right! These dude are worse, they disagree.
I thought RS 1 was better, RS 2 seemed the same as the first just different maps. Also the lack of UBI updates and their crappy servers was a total fail.
Only the new Rainbow Six and Operation Flashpoint Red River are the only Tactical FPS this year. I hope they release more Tactical FPS Games.
I really hope so. It was tactical and cool and everything. And I met my best friend ever playing R6 Vegas 1. Been waiting for a new one for years.
Yeah most likely it'll be announced seein how this year developers wanna bust out of the flood gates this year throw down some major announcements unlike last years sleeper E3.
One of the finest Tactical shooters around
Not likely to happen in '11, given both the crowded market and the fact that Ubi has got their own new Ghost Recon title to promote as well.
Hmm That is true but even if they do announce it its gonna be released after GhostRecon.
I hope so.... I loved the first RBSV. I will never forget the fun times at Calypso Casino and LVU Campus.
whoever disagreed is probably working on their 5th prestige level in black ops simply for bragging rights. there's nothing better than breaching into a room only to be greeted by mercs screaming, "MOTHER FUCKER!!!!!"
Haha so true! I used to love playing Rainbow online with rooms that had explosives disabled, but most people would forget to take off breach charges and I would always time them right and own people with a breach charge! Good times lol.
LVU & calypso were class maps, come to think of it most of em kicked ass, and team leader, I loved that game mode sooooooo much and havn't found another game like it, I really hope this is true, come on ubi make it happen. GOOD TIMES :)
Forget Facebook *like* where's the love button I'm hype - EDI
2 much fps games,no need. w8 for new generation
Just stay in cover all the time XD
Can't wait. Hopefully they fix their server issues and sign in issues. The whole "Failed to Initialize network" problem is inexcusable.
As much as I loved playing the Vegas games on the PS3, there were plagued with bugs and lag. Hopefully Ubisoft have taken the time to work on that in the next installment.
I remember bad connection issues when it released, but it was fixed quickly. That was a long while back anyway.
It would be unwise from a business stand point it would get drowned in the tidal wave of shooters coming this year. Maybe 2012 or 2013 perhaps.
a new vegas would move to the top of my list, even over deus ex, rage, and red river. i'll always prefer loading out with a g36 equipped with a red dot sight, and a mk23 high capacity mag, incindiary grenades to boot!!!
please dont go down the cod speeded up arcade route. r6 has always been a great tactical shooter. playing total conquest on black arrow on the first xbox is still one of the finest on-line gaming times i have had! i even bought a second 360 to use as a dedicated server for vegas, cos that game was so good. i have a good connection, and the dedicated let me have 16 no lag or screen tearing... real good working together as a team completely shutting out the other team in attack and defend. i would love to see a new r6 with the total conquest mode included, and a better optimised engine. make it happen
Black arrow was my first real online addiction
I hope they finish Future Soldier before starting on a new game, but after FS a new Rainbow Six is definitely needed.
I hope its true...and good lord ITS ABOUT TIME UBISOFT!
Doubt it will be this year. More like 2012.
Please dammit be true
rainbow six vegas 1 was amazing , i loved it , it was fun especially the online but i didn't like second game for many reasons , the most thing i hate is the sprint , in R1 it already make the player look like he's running , in R2 it was really really fast and it ruind it for me...
YES YES YES!!!! i'm praying it's not a portable rainbow six, and a true sequel to the vegas series. if it's true not only will my anticipation incapacitate me until its release but can't wait to see the new engine!!!! until then....MOVE...SILENT....
Can't wait! Kinda hoping it wont be in Vegas again though. It was fun but I want a new place...
Ps3 and 360 owners should rejoice RV is an awesome games I loved vegas 1 to bits brilliant online gameplay, vegas 2 whilst good didn't have as good maps plus coop play was a bit bitty. I really hope RV3 is an improved game I'm very much looking forward to it, out of all games RV gives you most satisfaction when you kill campers
Doubt it'll happen in 2011 but GOOD GOD Please give us a Rainbow Six in 2012! The franchise is a truly brilliant hybrid of tactical and straigh up FPS action with a brilliantly incorperated cover-system and squad mechanics system. Hopefully, if found to be true, the campaign will be as gripping as th original Raibow Six Vegas, with Logan back as the protagonist. It was good to be able to play as our custom character for campaign, but for that to sacrifice story and personality isn't worth it. Logan was a great lead and the plot was riddled with twists and memorable scenarios, the second had memorable locations but not much else. However, it did progress with its multiplayer component and Ranking System. Please Ubisoft, make it happen...
I HOPE THIS IS TRUE! WOULD LOVE TO JUMP BACK INTO TACTICAL
rogue spear and the rs1 addon eagle watch were so amazing back then. I remember playing them for weeks. no new rainbox six title will be able to top them. still rs3 and the vegas games were good games.
