Rainbow Six: Siege Will be Ready for Next-Gen Consoles on Day One

Rainbow Six: Siege Next-Gen

Ubisoft has announced that its most successful game Rainbow Six: Siege will be available to play on next-gen consoles that include PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X from day one. This means that you can play the title on launch day each of the consoles.

This was announced in the latest Developer Diary on the Ubisoft YouTube channel. The studio admitted that their most popular first-person shooter will steadily transition throughout the next generation of gaming.

In an interview to Windows Central, the Creative director of the game Leroy Athanassof said,

For Siege, our target is to be available right at launch. Let’s be clear here, there is no ‘phase two’ or no ‘reset.’ Your [app] icon remains the same. Why I can’t give you a date is because those dates are, in the end, on the people doing the next-gen consoles. What I can tell you is that we are going to be on [the consoles] from launch. When they will release the consoles; but it’s up to them to agree that. For Siege, our target is to be available right at launch.

He also went on to say that they don’t intend to break the community, which is why they want the game to be available right away when you get your new console. Athanassof also stated that cross-generational multiplayer is also something that they will have to ensure that players are kept united on both the new PS5 and the current PS4 consoles.

Lastly, Athanassof went on to talk about cross-play between PlayStation and Xbox consoles and admitted that it still remains unconfirmed.

We would love to be fully cross-play — have Xbox players matchmaking against the PlayStation players. We are ready to support that. And hopefully, this will happen because as I said, it’s a general move in the industry, and there is nothing that can prevent that. It’s just a matter of time before it happens.

On the other hand, Rainbow Six: Siege just started its Year 5 with new content, maps, and Operators. It also detailed its plan for Year 5 and Year 6 plans for the future.
