Sadly it appears Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will not include a traditional single player campaign with a narrative or story.
As reported by WhatCulture, the game’s art director, Scott Mitchell spoke more about the game at the EGX 2015 event.
He confirmed “there is no story per se“. However, the game will still offer single player content of some sort. He mentioned gamers can “play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps” He also said players can customize matches too.
Ubisoft responded officially to the comments made by Mitchell via a statement received by Cinema Blend. They said Ubisoft always had the ambition to deliver a “compelling cooperative and multiplayer experience for Rainbow Six Siege.
The publisher went on to say that gamers can still play the game’s “Terrorist Hunt offline & online“. However, they will speak more about the game’s single player offerings in the near future.
It sounds like Rainbow Six Siege is similar to Star Wars Battlefront. Both games offer single player offline modes, but they don’t have a proper story or campaign.
This is a trend that has been happening with many AAA video games. It started with Titanfall, Evolve, Star Wars Battlefront and now Rainbow Six Siege joins the same club.
