At the E3 2014 Ubisoft Media Briefing, the Tom Clancy game publisher reintroduced gamers to the Rainbow team. Rainbow Six: Siege is coming Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2015.
Revealed at the end of the conference, the in-game demo featured two teams of five battling each other in a hostage-filled home. In the footage, criminals were spotted barricading doors and windows in anticipation of the authorities. Then all hell breaks loose as Team Rainbow makes it way inside.
Ubisoft had originally announced Patriots as the next game in the Rainbow Six franchise – a game much darker in tone than previous installments in the series – in 2011. Five months ago, Ubisoft announced it was going back to the drawing board with the Rainbow Six franchise; Siege appears to be the result.
