As of this the most recent Ubisoft finical statements over 55 MILLION Gamers have played Rainbow Six Siege, as the game has become a runaway success for the world famous publisher/developer.
So you know the R6S team ain’t slowing down anytime soon with upcoming Year 5 of content with news events, two new operators, and as they revealed to Windows Central, PS5/XSX support for the next-gen consoles!
Leroy Athanassof, Game Director for R6S was excited to to reveal that action-packed multiplayer would be journeying to the next-gen consoles on launch day!
Why I can’t give you a date is because those dates are, in the end, on the people doing the next-gen consoles,” Athanassof stated. “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.
Leroy’s team is also working on cross-gen play to be available on day one so they don’t fragment the community. But what about the promised cross-play and cross-progression support for current-gen consoles??
Again, this is more a discussion between Microsoft and Sony. 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.
Are you looking forward to the upcoming changes to R6S? What would you like to see in the future for the game?
