Video games as a service are becoming more and more popular. This is a means to provide a video game title that will hopefully continue to evolve and stick with players for years to come rather than a development studio spitting out a new installment later on. For instance, the video game title we’re focusing on in this article is Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege. Released back in 2015, the video game is still going strong today and it appears that we will see the title launch on the upcoming next-generation platforms.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is a popular online tactical shooter that you’re all likely familiar with today. There is a healthy community of players who log online to enjoy matches with friends and other gamers all around the world. Being a competitive title, we have even seen this game become a popular esports title for teams to compete against each other in grand tournaments. At any rate, to keep this momentum going, Ubisoft is planning on the video game making for next-generation consoles, but don’t worry it looks like support will be around current generation platforms.
Recently the UK publication Dailystar got to speak with Rainbow Six Brand Director Alexandre Remy and its according to Remy that Ubisoft has no interest in making a sequel.
Apparently, Ubisoft wants this current title to thrive on current and next-generation consoles. We don’t know the specifics yet but it does seem that the development studio is looking at ways to keep the community together despite what platform you’re playing on. For now, we’ll have to wait and see just how Ubisoft may solve this problem, though one way may just simply be backward compatibility. If you can recall, Sony has already confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will be able to play PlayStation 4 video game titles.
Regardless, we don’t have the specifics yet on any upcoming generation console platform yet but we’re expecting plenty of info on the Xbox One to come out during Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference.
