Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6: Patriots is still in development as stated by Ubisoft executive director Alain Corre in an interview done by IGN. Corre explained that the game is still not ready to be released into the market and not even a timetable is set for its release.
“It’s an important franchise for Ubisoft. We want to make sure, on this one, like all the other games we’re working on, that we bring it when we feel it’s perfect,” he said.
We want the people who play the next Rainbow Six to be astonished
And, the game may not be named Rainbow 6: Patriots after all “We can’t say yet. We’re iterating,” he said. “What we want is to have a compelling story. We want people who play the next Rainbow 6 to be astonished, to be very pleased with what they see. You’ve seen that the improvement in games over the last few years has been exponential. We have to reflect that improvement in quality. That’s what we’re doing on all our games.”
Corre also added that the main reason behind the game not being released is that Ubisoft wants it to be creative and innovative enough to entertain its audience and be “something worth waiting for.”
“On some games, it happens more often. Creation is not an exact science,” Corre said. “When we’re happy with what we see, when we think we can bring something new to gamers, then we say, ‘okay, this is a good time to release it.'”
Rainbow 6 was originally confirmed to be a next-gen game and it was also originally announced in 2011 with a 2013 expected launch for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
The game is developed by Ubisoft Montreal with assistance from Ubisoft Toronto and Red Storm. The plot is that Team Rainbow is called to New York City to deal with a terrorist group that calls itself the ‘True Patriots’. Picturing themselves as a populist militia group, the True Patriots have decided to act as a judge, jury and executioner on behalf of the people that are harmed of what they see as Wall Street corruption.
