Ubisoft wants Rainbow Six Siege to be a game that lasts for another 5-10 years.
Fans of the game were concerned that the release of the upcoming next-gen consoles would have a big impact on Siege.
Rainbow Six is currently only on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC and purchasable on both the Steam and Uplay apps.
Next-Gen Consoles and Crossplay
BREACH AND CLEAR - Play as over 50 unique operators in Rainbow 6: Siege
We don’t know yet whether there will be graphical
improvements on the new consoles. However, there is a high possibility due to the
game already having enhanced graphics on the PC version of the game.
As well as the improved graphics, we may see improved
servers. Meaning lowered Ping and faster load times.
Ubisoft has also confirmed there will be cross-play between current and next-gen consoles.
Ubisoft has said this is because they don’t want to split their community and instead, allow everyone to play together without breaking the bank.
Next-Gen Release Date
WHO DARES WINS - Play as SAS operatives!
Ubisoft Director Leroy Athanassof confirmed that Siege will release shortly after the release of the next-gen consoles.
This will most likely be sometime in January / February. Until then, the game will still be available on the Xbox One and PS4.
We can assume you will need to re-purchase the game on the next-gen console even if you currently own it.
There will be no changes to the PC version of Rainbow 6 Siege when the game releases on the next-gen consoles.
