Rainbow 6 Patriots Release Date Revealed

StickSkills.com writes, "As Ubisoft prepares to release their upcoming shooter Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, it appears that a release date may have slipped for another shooter from the company. Previously, Ubisoft had only mentioned 2013 for Rainbow 6 Patriots but had refused to go anymore specific with the release date." (PC, PS3, Rainbow 6 Patriots, Xbox 360)

January 1 2013 is a long way but man I do plan on getting this game.
chriski333  +   1085d ago
i bet u anything the date will change
Ashunderfire86  +   1085d ago
Well of course it will change its a place holder date.

rainbow six vegas was one of my fav games, here is hoping this one has a great and lengthy campaign
J5Feedback  +   1085d ago | Well said
I still play terrorist hunt when I'm bored. Calypso Casino is one of my favorite multiplayer maps in history.
KwietStorm  +   1085d ago
I just hope it doesn't play like that target demo trailer. The last thing I need is for them to casualize Rainbow Six.
THC CELL  +   1085d ago
J5Feedback a true rainbow six player will tell u garage was the best map ever in the rainbow series

Playing rainbow six since rainbow 3
Summons75  +   1084d ago
they already casualized it with Vegas, I want them to go back to more strategy like the old games
KwietStorm  +   1084d ago
No agrees and 4 disagrees. So you all want QTEs in Rainbow Six? You want it to play like Heavy Rain? Because thats exactly what the trailer emulated.
Kurt Russell  +   1085d ago
I hope they get that blonde stupid looking skank to advertise this one as well!!!... Only kiddin'

I have missed the Rainbow 6 games, I loved Vegas!

The first one was amazing the second was the equivalent to eating a terribly prepared piece of bone in rib eye...a crime in this world which should never happen. The third one at least from the videos that I saw will be a classic. They are takin their sweet time with this game as they should.
PerpetualMathx10  +   1085d ago
very excited for this game, ive been holding off after i got burnt out on fps games. so im very much looking forward to halo 4 and rainbow 6 patriots!
Brosy  +   1085d ago
I hope it's as good as the Vegas series.
Bathyj  +   1085d ago
I thought I was the only one who loved Vegas.

Yeah I know it was different to the early games, but it was still great, and gave you lots of options and choices in taking out tangos.

We need more shooters that give a bit of freedom and allow you to think. A nice change from the space marines and run and gun military shooters.

PS
Did you know about 50% of koalas have chlamydia?
Dirty little bastards.

Vegas is a good series, man wish they had came out with a Vegas 3 before now.
Kingdom Come  +   1085d ago
I felt Vegas 2's multiplayer, rank system and customisation was an improvement but they should have kept Logan as the protagonist in the campaign, Vegas 1's campaign was so grounded, character driven and suspensful, whilst in Vegas 2 I hated the protagonist, and we designed him...
DeadlyFire  +   1085d ago
Vegas was primarily First person. This game is third person view only. So I see a big negative on that already. It worked for Mass Effect, but that wasn't a tactical type of game.

January is a very unexpected release date. It doesn't fit in at all with their goal of taking on frontline shooters. January is just a placeholder. Date is more than likely Septemberish or later.

I don't like the direction Patriots is going in, but I can't stop it. I just wish there was a Vegas 3 or Raven Shield 2 or something along those lines.
i_da_pappy  +   1085d ago
January 1st? i dont think so. as bad as i want this game, in January nobody wants to spend money its right after christmas. they need to put it out before christmas or push it back to february.
blackhammer  +   1085d ago
What about the kids who get their holiday money in their stockings and stuff? They'll spend money. I know I spend some on steam deals.
ian72  +   1085d ago
Looking forward to seeing how this game turns out. The new Ghost Recon isn't doing it for me, I hope this is better.
Pintheshadows  +   1085d ago
Well the concept trailer was incredible so i'll definately be picking this up. Both the Vegas titles were quality.

Not as good as Rogue Spear though.
SignifiedSix  +   1085d ago
Raven Shield was pretty sweet too!
CaptCalvin  +   1085d ago
Wow. Didn't know anybody still remembered.
nachokingp  +   1085d ago
Amazon posts guesstimates of dates frequently, that's not a guarantee of ACTUAL release dates. Those dates change all the time. Halo 4 had a release date of 12/31/2012 forever until 343 Studios announced the real release date. You guys need to stop acting like amazon gets insider information, it's just a placeholder people.

This. Its pathetic how these amature gaming blogs continue to reference Amazon's estimated release dates as insider leaks. If amazon posted a link for Xbox 720 with a release date for next week I guarantee some idiot blogger will report it as a leak and submit it to this site.
Commodore  +   1085d ago
If you think this game is getting released on New Years Day....please think about it. Winter Classic, Bowl Games....not happening.
blackhammer  +   1085d ago
Yeah, doubtful it's the actual release date.

I'll play it, but I won't purchase it due to my lack of faith in practically any Ubisoft developer these days. Vegas, Vegas 2 were my least favorite in the whole series (and we won't talk about Lockdown... never).
tigertron  +   1085d ago
New Year's Day? unlikely.
MidnytRain  +   1085d ago
Unlikely? Yes. Epic? YES.
Der_Kommandant  +   1085d ago
I can't freaking wait!!!!
TheEatingOrange  +   1085d ago
LOL it says january 1st 2013 cause Ubisoft said it's gonna be released in 2013 and january 1st is the first day of 2013..
TheDareDevil  +   1085d ago
I know right?
I can't believe they made a story for this. I mean as game journos you should know better that when a retailer lists a games release date as Dec 31st or Jan 1st, it's NOT the exact release date, just the year
azshorty2003  +   1085d ago
its a freakin placeholder date! why are stupid people allowed to post shit online?
richard919  +   1085d ago
all that means is it is next year with the 1st being at least. come on now how many times have we seen this too much.
Funky Town_TX  +   1085d ago
Don't screw it up Ubi
Splinter Cell is screwed up, and it looks like Ghost Recon is screwed up also. I just hope R6 is just like R6 of the past. R6 was one of the first FPS I played online on a console.
theeg  +   1085d ago
pc and next gen only!

*fingers crossed
Kamikaze8  +   1085d ago
Clearly a placeholder, Amazon has done that before. The closest assumption I would make is the first quarter of the year if not simply 2013.
MIDNIGHT 21  +   1085d ago

Black Arrow was so much fun. I can still close my eyes and run Airport in my head...Cafe, too.
Dogswithguns  +   1085d ago
Im a bigfan since forever..
Hayabusa 117  +   1085d ago
Never liked the Rainbow 6 games TBH...but target gameplay trailer looks dope! If it PLAYS anything like that, it'll rock.
sandman224  +   1085d ago
If its going to take that long they better polish the heck out of it. The the previous game was one of my favorites. The only problem with the game was the graphics. I hope it's pretty on the eyes when released.
