Ubisoft executive director Alain Corre has confirmed that Rainbow 6 Patriots is still in development, when speaking with IGN at Gamescom 2013.
“On Rainbow 6, it’s still cooking,” Corre told IGN. “It’s an important franchise for Ubisoft. We want to make sure, on this one, like all the other games we’re working on, that we bring it when we feel it’s perfect.”
Corre wasn’t so keen to elaborate on how much the game has changed since its original reveal in November 2011.
“We can’t say yet. We’re iterating,” he said. “What we want is to have a compelling story. We want people who play the next Rainbow 6 to be astonished, to be very pleased with what they see. You’ve seen that the improvement in games over the last few years has been exponential. We have to reflect that improvement in quality. That’s what we’re doing on all our games.”
“What we have to do, and it’s something that is very important for us, is that we bring a new iteration when we believe that we have enough creativity, enough innovation, to make something worth waiting for,” he said. “On some games, it happens more often. Creation is not an exact science. When we’re happy with what we see, when we think we can bring something new to gamers, then we say, ‘okay, this is a good time to release it.’”
Rainbow 6 Patriots has fallen way under the radar since its announcement, but at least Ubisoft can confirm that it has not been abandoned. Are you looking forward to the next entry in the Rainbow 6 series? Let us know in the comments below or follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
