Rainbow Six Siege 2: There will probably be no successor

Rainbow Six Siege 2

The release of the multiplayer shooter Rainbow Six Siege is now six years ago. The action game is still very popular at the moment and has a high number of users. However, some fans are wondering if and when an official successor could appear. Some Ubisoft Montreal employees provided the answer to this and other questions in a Q&A session.

In particular, the creative director Leroy Athanasoff spoke up on this topic and quickly made it clear that he would not be participating anytime soon a Rainbow Six Siege (buy now 15.99 € / 17.99 €) 2 is expected - if at all.

"Siege is a constantly evolving game. The victories of the future will differ dramatically from today's Distinguishing Victories - to the point where you could call it Victories 2. However, as a team, we firmly believe that we can make these changes in an incremental manner - within the current framework of Siege. A Siege 2 would be a new game, a New environment, probably new inventory and maybe a new development team mean. We don't feel like this is what the community needs. We are very attached to our investments in the game, we don't want one move on new. "

This statement does not categorically and for all time rule out that there will ever be a Rainbow Six Siege 2. However, the team seems very happy with the current course and has no plans to deviate from it in the foreseeable future. How do you feel about it? Do you really want a Rainbow Six Siege 2 or do you agree with the original and its further development? Let us know in the comments!

Here’s why ‘Rainbow Six Siege 2’ is probably never happening

Since Rainbow Six Siege launched back in 2015, fans may have been wondering whether there will be a sequel. But Ubisoft developers have now explained why this will be unlikely.

During a Reddit AMA yesterday (July 22), creative director Leroy Athanassoff answered that “Siege is an evolving game”.

“The Siege of the future will be dramatically different from today’s Siege, to the point where we could call it Siege 2. However, as a team, we strongly believe we can bring about these changes in an incremental way, within the current Siege framework.”

On what would constitute a sequel, Athanassoff added: “Siege 2 would mean a new game, a new environment, probably a new inventory and maybe a new dev team. We do not feel that this is what is needed for the community. We care about your investment in the game, we do not want to move to a new one.”

Instead, the developers want players to remain in their current “home” by iterating and improving it with regular updates.

“We want to protect your investment and increase its value,” Athanassoff continued. “It’s like renovations to your old house to make it up to date, shiny and appealing.”

During the same AMA, the development team also talked about how they are keen to were keen to keen to get rid of the Terrorist Hunt game mode, a PvE mode used as a warm-up before jumping into online lobbies. However, that would require creating a new ‘warm-up’ mode to replace it.

Elsewhere, Ubisoft is closing down Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad after 13 months, with a blog post explaining that the free-to-play mobile title was no longer sustainable.
