Ever since its launch in 2015, Rainbow Six Siege’s player base has constantly expanded, and Ubisoft has said there are no plans for a sequel.
At the Rainbow Six Invitational 2018, brand director Alexandre Remy expressed a desire to keep the game going for ten years, saying: “We’ve communicated already a couple of times about how the vision of the game is to bring it to 100 operators.”
The operators are the games characters, and it currently has 36 of them; Remy went on to outline Ubisoft’s plan for expansion:
“Today we have 36 operators. Year 3 will bring eight new operators. [The goal of 100] is not only a symbol, but it’s a testament of the longevity that we want to put in the game. Again, we are claiming extremely loud here, there is no sequel planned, and we are here for the next 10 years, so expect more Rainbow Six in your life for quite some time.”
It’s an ambitious goal, and one that speaks to how well Ubisoft has done to continue its support of Rainbow Six Siege since its launch in 2015.
