Don't expect a sequel installment to release for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The creative director confirms future updates.
How about a single-player Rainbow Six? Like the R6 Patriots that was cancelled before R6 Siege.
Now that was a good idea
How about a Splinter Cell? Sigh..
How about non-live-serviced Ubi-anything?
This has nothing to do with Splinter Cell.
Ubisoft are stubborn like an ass ass, listen what the gamers want!!!!! Instead of making some weird shooter xdefa... waht the fuck is that crap?
While you may be right. This guy is the creative director for R6 Siege not an Ubisoft top guy.
Is he wrong though? What would be different about a Siege 2 except for charging you $60/70? I mean maybe they make it current gen only, but they could eventually segregate PS4 from PS5 players anyways and put the old version in legacy with no more updates, which would happen anyways if there was a Siege 2. What was the point of this article btw? Just to point out a single Reddit comment that anyone who cares about the game like a 'hardcore gamer' already read. I swear sometimes games media is so annoying in their genuflecting. On one hand we criticize games like FIFA and COD for charging yearly and having a bunch of mtx, but on the other we talk about how a long supported non-annualized game is not getting a sequel for no reason. BTW I have played about 2-3 hours of Siege during a Steam or Uplay free weekend so don't take me as some die hard fan.
One of the 2 games that have actually found success and has been supported over the years so it doesn't surprise me. It's constantly on sale so it probably brings over new players easily because of that and with the amount of content it has already it's easy to sell. Making a sequel would mean fragmenting the player base and trying to sell a 60 game that would probably be the same thing.
They need to improve the graphics, modeling, animations, etc across the board. Theres too many games that easily outdo siege in the presentation department, and they are way too slow to add meaningful updates that aren't just another battlepass, whale only event, and another gimmick operator. They stopped doing 2 operators per season, only do map changes that stealthily remove offensive content for a chinese release, and make obnoxious gameplay decisions that just remove parts. Honestly, a new release is the only solution because I doubt anything meaningful will get added in the next few years.
Imagine Ubisoft making a Rainbow Six game that honored the Tom Clancy name with a story about international conspiracy......yeah me neither.
Perhaps just a revamp of the graphics, animations, and presentation. Now they should do a new R6 that isn’t taglined Siege. Reimagine that Patriots idea.
Vegas 3 please? Single player coop and multiplayer
They need a new full team that take over [Siege 1]. The original team can be dedicated to a next gen [rainbow or siege2], if people decides to move on to next gen then both teams can let go of Siege 1 and so both teams than can work on extra content. Sadly, the Director lost interest in innovating. So even if a solution like this is valid and wise, it is no longer possible. What a shame..
This isn’t the original R6S team. It’s been handed off I think since last year. Things will change but it can happen with one update.
