Ubisoft canceled Rainbow Six: Patriots awhile back, and now they've finally explained why that happened now that Rainbow Six: Siege is on its way. In a nutshell, Patriots was for the last generation of consoles, and they wanted to do something for the new generation.
Patriots – on Rainbow Six for three-and-a-half years – and Patriots was old-gen. Xbox 360 and PS3," Ubisoft technical artist Oliver Couture explained to Rock, Paper, Shotgun. "Next-gen consoles were just around the corner, and we were like, ‘OK, we want to also have a next-gen experience. What can we do for that?’
"We were trying stuff out with destruction technology, and we realized destruction really changes the game. We tried to see how it could fit with old-gen, but it just didn’t work out. So for us it was just a better solution to clean the slate, reset, and make what’s best for the players."
And that new slate was a cops and robbers game with the Rainbow Six name. Did two people at Ubisoft and EA share ideas? It's quite uncanny that both introduced a cops and robbers game with their military franchises this year.
