During the EGX 2015 game event, Ubisoft confirmed that the next game in the Rainbow Six franchise—Siege—will not have a single player story mode.
The art director Scott Mitchell had the following to say:
There is no story mode per se. You go through training, where you get to experience different operators and their devices. You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customise matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things. It’s a pretty good training ground, and on top or that you’re unlocking the same content as you would playing in PvP. You’re still gaining stars, reknown points, and new operatives.
With this, Ubisoft is primarily focusing on the multiplayer aspect of the game and leaving its single player component to the wayside.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be launching for the PS4, Xbox One and PC on December 1, 2015.
Ubisoft made it seem that single player for Rainbow Six Siege was going to be important in previous showings.
