Rainbow Six: Patriots being Remade for Next-Gen

Posted December 18, 2013 by Kat in News

Earlier this year Rainbow Six: Patriots abruptly went dark from the radar of fans and the industry, with developer Ubisoft cancelling all pre-orders, and removing it from their roster of upcoming games.  Originally announced in 2011, the FPS entry in the long-standing Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six series first saw troubles back in March of 2012 when key members of the development team were removed from the project.

Now, more information regarding the decisions being made for the game, and when we can hope to see it, was given when Ubisoft North American president Laurent Detoc spoke to IGN about the game – including the fact that it has now been switched to next-gen consoles for its development and release.

“We had a core team,” explained Detoc.  “They had a good vision.  They got started, and then the game wasn’t working. So [they had] to start again. There’s an editorial group in Ubisoft, a big group, very influential. If the game is not good enough, they say it’s not good enough. Most of the time, the team will say, ‘yeah, I know.’ But sometimes they want to continue in a direction where you say, ‘no, it’s not going to work.’”  He went on to explain that they felt the game “had to be remade” and that it’s “possible” it could come out under a new name.
