Is This a Multi-Generation Title?

Rainbow Six Siege is about three and a half years old. In its fourth year of activity and twenty-eight additional operators later, Siege is still going on as strong as ever. All good things must come to an end, right? That may be true, but Ubisoft is not planning on letting Rainbow Six Siege stop any time soon. According to Alexandre Remy, Rainbow Six Siege will be transitioning to the PS5 and next-gen Xbox, whatever that may be. When talking to Daily Star, Remy said that they “don’t want a sequel whatsoever.”

While that may sound like a disgruntled and frustrated man, he is in fact quite the opposite. Remy actually wants Rainbow Six Siege to grow to a roster of more than 100 playable characters. As it stands now, the game has 49 operators, so they are half way there. Surely, by then we will be well into the next generation of consoles, and maybe even the one after that. Luckily, Ubisoft has a plan to bring Siege all the way there.

“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’ve been asking how can we make the player base of Siege today be able to migrate – if they want to migrate, that is – but also make this cheaper [than buying a new, next-gen copy of the game] as much as possible or through backwards compatibility.” Remy also says that they are early on in conversations with Mircosoft and Sony on this big transition.

Do you think Rainbow Six Siege will have the longevity Alexandre Remy claims? Let us know in the comments below.
