Ubisoft has confirmed that there's no sequel in the pipeline for Rainbow Six Siege, and is instead committed to churning out fresh content for the squaddie shooter for the next decade or so.
Speaking with Eurogamer, series brand director Alexandre Remy was about as succinct as you can get when touching base on a follow-up: 'We are saying extremely loudly here: there is no sequel planned,' adding, 'We will be here for the next 10 years. So expect more Rainbow 6 in your life for quite some time.'
As part of the plan, Ubisoft is hoping to release around 100 Operators for Rainbow Six Siege during its lifetime, with eight new characters rolling out as part of the game's Year 3 schedule. Yesterday, it was revealed that the shooter will be getting a new PvP mode titled Pick & Ban, plus a host of other goodies throughout the year.
Rainbow Six Siege was released on PS4, PC, and Xbox One in December 2015, and despite a rocky start has maintained a strong following thanks to continued support from its developer over the past two years.
The project originally started out life as the narrative-heavy Rainbow Six Patriots back in 2011, although the game was ultimately cancelled as Ubisoft felt it was better to embrace the latest technology at the time, namely the then-upcoming PS4 and Xbox One.
