Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege title is getting a lot more momentum lately and questions regarding upcoming content have risen.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is growing in the eSports scene and new content is on the way. Developer and publisher Ubisoft will continue to support the game. However, it turns out that new game modes shouldn’t be expected. The confirmation comes from an interview between PC Gamer and Xavier Marquis from Ubisoft Montreal, where Marquis said that new modes is “something that we do not want to do.
Brand director Alexandre Remy added to discussion, stating that instead of new modes, they will focus on adding new operators to the pool. Additionally, the team working on Rainbow Six Siege also plans on delivering 17 maps and 30 operators with the new Velvet Shell expansion scheduled for launch tomorrow, February 7.
“When we launched the game a year ago, we were like, ‘Yeah, we’re going to make new content including game modes because it’s a formula that makes sense.’ But as we moved forward, we relized there’s so much depth with operators and destruction. That has a lot to offer, so the focus is always to be on refreshing the meta with operators and new maps.
The moment that we hit 50 operators, that’s the minimum that we actually want. The idea is that you actually want enough operators so that [for] each pick you have a choice. Thermite for a long time was not a choice, everyone had to pick him in a team because he was the only one who could breach into a reinforced wall. Introducing Hibana, all of a sudden the player could perform that task with a choice. At that moment every choice is tough choice for the player and not an obvious one. To come to that moment, you need a minimum of 50. When we have 50, that’ll be when the game is at its peak in terms of strategy.” – Alexandre Remy, Brand Director at Ubisoft
Remy claims that 50 is the peak number, which leave us wondering whether or not more will be added once the 50 is reached. We have reached out to Ubisoft for an official answer so stay tuned!
