Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6: Patriots was first revealed this year when a video that displayed a prototype version of the game was leaked onto the internet just days before Game Informer shipped out an issue of their magazine with the game being featured as the cover story. Since then, we have had little to no updates on the status of the game, and with the development studio losing some of its key members earlier this year, we were a bit worried.
However, today in an interview with Polygon, CEO Yves Guillemot told them that the game is great so far and when they finally decide to reveal it, “it will surprise the industry.”
“The only thing I can say is that we have a good team working on it, and it’s really looking good,” Ubisoft chairman and CEO Yves Guillemot told Polygon. “So when it will come, it will surprise the industry.”
While Guillemot couldn’t confirm that Rainbow 6: Patriots would or would not be a next-gen title, he did say that “there’s a good chance it can be.” Rainbow Six has been dormant since Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 released in 2008. With this latest installment, Ubisoft is looking to regain the title of the top multiplayer shooter, although what’s more important to us is the story. Patriots will take place in the US and follow a home-grown terrorist plot. As the prototype video displays (shown below), Ubisoft is making a game where moral choices will be made by the player, with those choices heavily impacting the story.
We will be continuing to follow Rainbow 6 Patriots and report on any updates we recieve, so make sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter to stay up to date with all the latest.
