“No, no, no. The Rainbow Six solo/singleplayer experience is dead.”
That’s what the franchise’s brand director, Alexandre Remy, told journalists when he was asked about a new single-player Rainbow Six game. Ubisoft had one in the works called Patriots, but it was canned for the multiplayer-oriented Siege.
The possibility of a new solo title was drummed up again earlier this year when the company sent out a survey gauging the interest of a campaign mode, but the responses evidently fell on deaf ears.
“For Siege, forget about a solo campaign. We want this game to be a pure competitive multiplayer experience. All of our resources are going in that direction and to invest those resources elsewhere would be a digression.”
“When you have a game that requires so much support, and so much caring in patching and balancing, I don’t think you have the luxury to divert. “
“Our fans expect a certain level of quality and a mastery in our games that is extremely high. Why would you only make an OK-ish solo campaign?”
