Rainbow 6 Patriots confirmed for PS4, Xbox One

Ubisoft finally confirmed Rainbow 6 Patriots for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.


The status of Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots has been a mystery for some time, but Ubisoft has maintained the game was still on track for release albeit with a different vision. After some hints that the game would go next-gen, Ubisoft finally confirmed the switch to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

"Rainbow 6 got caught in the transition of going to next-gen and essentially we're figuring out 'well, are we making the right game for the right hardware systems?'", Ubisoft's director of marketing Tony Kee told IGN. "And you know, on Watch Dogs, the guys have been working on that game and it's always been a next-generation game in their minds and the way they were designing it. And at the end of the day when the specs showed up for next generation, they had guessed right. That's not always the case."

Kee said that Ubisoft wanted to spread out its blockbuster games, and the company wants to make sure it has "the right game at the right time." IGN notes that Kee never mention the name Patriots, so it is possible a name change could be in the works.

        It might look decent enough but you're still stuck using a crappy control scheme aka "gamepad" instead of a far better control scheme on PC with K/M.

          I dont mind shooters with a gamepad, it tends to be more relaxed, you get more time to shoot, more forgiving. yeah, its not as intense, but these kinds of tactical FPS's have a place.

            More time to shoot? Huh? That makes zero sense. If anything, it takes longer to focus on stuff - granted auto-aim assist helps a bit but of course that's pretty lame since the whole enjoyment of a shooter is, well, shooting things using the controls. Having the AI help you do that is antithetical to the whole point of the game.
