No more Rainbow 6! R.I.P.

10 replies 545 views Edited Apr 5, 2011

or any more Tom Clancy based games

I was speaking to an employee of Ubisoft and there are no plans to make anymore of these.

The franchise may well be dead.

They are concentrating on three other games at the moment - one of which being Assassins Creed. The other was a music based game, and the other was some RPG.

It might not be the definative end as i cannot hear the fat lady singing but it doesnt look good.

Ubisoft mentioned over a year ago that will definately not be a Rainbow 6 Vegas 3 so that confusion is over.

Things are how things are.. There little that I or anyone can do about it. It was a relatively successful franchise and with the money brought in by the COD series you would think they would still be riding on this bandwagon.

I will miss it. I think it had excellent gameplay, certainly in the offline parts if its offering.

In fact, I still thnk its the best campaign I have played, both on R6V2 and R6V3.

The mix between arcade battle and strategy was superb.

Oh well - live in hope.

I think its funny and quite ass backwards of them to make a new Ghost Recon (which pretty much NO ONE AT ALL is playing) and NOT make an addition to the R6V2 series, which people are still purchasing and just starting to play. It just makes absolutely ZERO sense. I play R6V2 A LOT and pretty much everytime im on there are guys from COD who ranked really low and trying to level up. And, more often then not, they say that R6 is better than COD. But they chose to make another Ghost Recon?! WTF?! I mean seriously. What idiot is making such stupid decisions over there anyway?

Dude during the Microsoft E3 Press Conference they said that all future Tom Clancy games will get Kinect support... Which kinda implies that they will make more Tomy Clancy games. Just because you spoke to a person of Ubisoft does not mean they know everything. For one he/she may work at an entirely different branch of Ubisoft and their branch doesn't deal with Tom Clancy.

Ahh bummer, but something that i kinda knew about the RSV series. I freaking loved those games so much! I played endless hours, seriously. Till my eyes burned and my head hurt. I always hoped that one day they'd continue on to the third one. Oh flippin well.

Don't diss Rayman. The 3 main Rayman games were amazing. Rayman 2:The Great Escape on Dreamcast was/is one of the best games ever.

That frkn sucks. I barely picked up rsv2 for $8 and love it. It's fun and I like how its team based, def more fun than cod. Me and my bro are always playing. I never picked up a rainbow six game because back in the ps1 days I remember playing one and it was slow and not very fun. So that ruined it for me. I really hope they make a Vegas 3 or another rainbow six game, maybe Europe or something, that would be cool change in scenery.
If there is a future release ill be sure to buy it
