Rainbow Six Patriots coming in 2013

Ubisoft has confirmed ongoing rumors of a new R6 game, titled Rainbow Six Patriots. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with help from Ubisoft Toronto and Red Storm, it's planned for release on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 in 2013. As rumored, the team will take on a threat called the "True Patriots," a revolutionary group railing against the US government and special interests. Ubisoft promises "tough ethical decisions" in stopping the threat of domestic terrorism. The upcoming cover of Game Informer confirms the New York City setting.

Although the announcement didn't share specific details, Patriots will also be receiving the series' signature co-op and multiplayer modes. "Terrorism has evolved, and so has Rainbow 6," said creative director David Sears in the announcement. "In Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots, all the team play, tactics, and realism that fans of the series love have been coupled with an exciting new narrative direction. This adds an unprecedented level of humanity that will make Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience."
