Rainbow Six Siege has drummed up a whopping 30 million registered players worldwide across PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, Ubisoft has announced.

The tactical shooter has proven quite the success story since its launch in 2015, and despite a relatively inauspicious start has gone from strength to strength thanks to some robust and frequent updates from its developers (the game was coded by many of Ubisoft's studios).

There's no signs of that slowing down either, as Ubisoft recently kicked off Year 3 of Rainbow Six Siege last month with a series of new updates. Furthermore, the game's been pulling in the punters on the eSports front, with 321,000 concurrent viewers watching recent the 2018 Six Invitational. 

'Over the last three years we have endeavoured to create a solid community built on transparency as we grow and evolve the ever-expanding world of Rainbow Six Siege,' commented Rainbow Six Siege's Brand Director, Alexandre Remy. 'We are so tremendously honored to achieve this milestone, and we will continue to do everything we can to earn each and every new person that decides to play.'

Looking ahead, Ubisoft has confirmed it has no plans to develop a sequel to Rainbow Six Siege, instead wanting to continue to pump out additional content for the game. This includes the lofty goal of having over 100 Operators released for the title during its life cycle.

Rainbow Six Siege launched in December 2015, and even back then we were pretty impressed by what it had to offer.
