Rainbow Six Siege has managed to keep a relatively strong online playerbase since it launched way back in late 2015, and apparently Ubisoft has no plans for it to go away any time soon.
The squad based tactical shooter, which has received additional content updates regularly for over three years now, has done a great job of keeping players around and engaged, and apparently if Ubisoft gets their way the game will continue its life for quite a while to come, even into the next generation of home game consoles.
Speaking to Daily Star, Rainbow Six brand director Alexandre Remy expressed that there is no sequel to the game currently planned, and that the game will likely come to next gen consoles as a way to keep the series alive. The hope is that next gen console owners can easily move over, while still being able to play with their current gen console owning friends.
"The reason behind this is we don’t want to segregate our community between the different platforms. In an ideal world tomorrow, we’d love players from every platform to be able to play together. We are approaching next-gen with the same spirit."
"We have to make every effort possible that when next gen comes in, they are treated as a high-end PC versus another PC."
While a PS5 and next gen Xbox port of Rainbow Six Siege has not been formally announced, it sure does sound like one is likely, and the game is likely to keep getting updates for some time to come.
