'Patriots' Subtitle MIA
Ubisoft's E3 press conference had a Rainbow Six: Patriots-sized hole slap bang in the middle of it. Having missed several trade shows after its formal announcement, it appears that Team Rainbow will be breaching and clearing onto next-gen consoles at some point, but the 'Patriots' concept may have been shelved.
"We’re absolutely making another Rainbow Six," Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key reassured IGN. "We’ve already said so. We just, as we enter this new generation, have to make sure we make the right game at the right time with the right feature sets.
“And Rainbow Six got caught in the transition of going to next-gen and essentially we’re figuring out ‘well, are we making the right game for the right hardware systems?’ And you know, on Watch Dogs, the guys have been working on that game and it’s always been a next-generation game in their minds and the way they were designing it. And at the end of the day when the specs showed up for next generation, they had guessed right. That’s not always the case.”
You'll notice the obvious lack of 'Patriots' subtitle there. This could just be down to phrasing, but perhaps the concept has been canned?
