Next Rainbow Six Game Going Next-Gen, Might Not Be Patriots

Rainbow Six Patriots
Ubisoft

Ubisoft debuted a new Tom Clancy game during its E3 press event, but it wasn’t a Rainbow Six title. That doesn’t mean the publisher doesn’t have plans for the successful franchise down the line.

“We’re absolutely making another Rainbow 6,” Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key told IGN. “We’ve already said so. We just, as we enter this new generation, have to make sure we make the right game at the right time with the right feature sets.”

Ubi announced Rainbow Six: Patriots back in 2011, but the game has since been languishing in development hell, with no clear answer as to when or where it will surface. It’s entirely possible Patriots is the game Key is talking about, but he makes sure to not actually state what the next Rainbow Six game will be in his statement. The only sure thing is that Rainbow Six’s next appearance will be on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

“Sometimes you have to take a step back and go ‘you know, I’m seeing the possibilities, but it’s gonna take more time,’” Key added. “We don’t really have anything else to announce or say about Rainbow 6, but we will say it’s a really exciting project for us and we can’t wait to say more.”

When Rainbow Six resurfaces, it will be interesting to see what form it takes. For now, we’ll just have to hope some semblance of Patriots will see the light of day.
