During a question and answer session held in recent days on Reddit, the Creative Director of Rainbow Six Siege, Leroy Athanassof, addressed the issue of the development of the sequel by discussing it with the visitors of the well-known videogame forum.
The exponent of the Ubisoft development team committed to supporting the iconic multiplayer shooter clarifies the doubts of fans by explaining to them that “Siege is a video game in constant evolution. The Rainbow Six Siege of the future will be radically different from today’s Siege, to the point enough to push people to believe it has become Siege 2. However, as a development team, we firmly believe we can make these changes incrementally while staying within the current framework of Siege. “
While confirming the development of a lot of content, Athanassof therefore believes that the GaaS nature of Rainbow Six Siege would not go well with the idea of moving to a new chapter: “Siege 2 would mean launching a new game, and with it a new environment, probably a new inventory and maybe even a new development team. We don’t think this is the way to go to support the community. The players have invested a lot in Siege and we want to protect that investment by increasing its value to make the current ‘home’ ‘of fans an ever better place. It’s a bit like renovating and renovating an old house to make it more modern, bright and attractive.
In a previous speech, Ubisoft representatives also discussed the possible transition of Rainbow Six Siege to the free to play model.
