'Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege' (ALL) Exceeds 30 Million Registered Players

Inspired by real world counter-terrorist organizations, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarters confrontations.

For the first time in a Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six game, players will engage in sieges, a new style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into modern strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemy’s position. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege gives players unprecedented control over their ability to fortify their position - by reinforcing walls and floors, using barbed wire, deployable shields and mines, and more - or breach the enemies’ using observation drones, sheet charges, rappelling, and more. The fast pace, lethality and uniqueness of each siege sets a new bar for intense firefights, strategic gameplay and competitive gaming.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege also features a technological breakthrough that redefines the way players interact with a game environment. Leveraging Ubisoft Montreal’s proprietary Realblast engine, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege incorporates procedural destruction that is realistic and unscripted, meaning the environment reacts authentically, distinctively and dynamically, based on variables like the caliber of bullets or the amount of explosives used. This advance allows players to leverage destruction in meaningful ways. Walls can be shattered, opening new lines of fire. Ceilings and floors can be breached to create new access points. This ability to modify the level design in real time enables players to create new gameplay opportunities directly within the game level.

Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has surpassed 30 Million Registered Players across all platforms.

Released in 2015, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has become one of the most successful multiplayer shooter and continues to evolve In Year 3 with regular content updates from the launch of Operation Chimera, Outbreak, and slew of additional game updates. This year also saw a record 321,000 peak concurrent viewers tune into the 2018 Six Invitational, Rainbow Six Siege’s largest Major Esports championship to date, with more than 6.2 million hours watched across all channels throughout the event. 

“On behalf of the entire team, we wanted to thank every member of our diverse, global community for their support of our game. Our players are the most valuable element to our game. Over the last three years we have endeavored to create a solid community built on transparency as we grow and evolve the ever-expanding world of Rainbow Six Siege,” said Alexandre Remy, Brand Director, Rainbow Six Siege. “We are so tremendously honored to achieve this milestone, and we will continue to do everything we can to earn each and every new person that decides to play.”

In line with this continued commitment to provide new qualitative content and seamlessly integrate members of its ever-growing community of players, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow® Six: Siege development team’s vision is to bring 100 operators to the game for the years to come.

Year 3 has also brought significant shifts to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League, which is now composed of two Seasons, six months each, from June to November (Season 8) and December to May (Season 9). Each Season being concluded by Season Finales, where the eight best teams of the Season – two per region: Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America – compete for a prize pool. Each Year now also features two Majors, events where the most intense Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege action unfolds. In addition to the Six Invitational each February, a “Six Major” tournament will now take place in August. As a first edition, the Six Major Paris will therefore take place in Paris in August 2018.

Key Features

  • Counter terrorist operatives are trained to handle extreme situations, such as hostage rescue, with surgical precision. As “short range” specialists, their training is concentrated on indoor environments. Operating in tight formations, they are experts of close quarter combat, demolition, and coordinated assaults.
  • For the first time in Rainbow Six, players will engage in sieges, a brand-new style of assault. Enemies now have the means to transform their environments into strongholds: they can trap, fortify, and create defensive systems to prevent breach by Rainbow teams. To face this challenge, players have a level of freedom unrivaled by any previous Rainbow Six game. Combining tactical maps, observation drones, and a new rappel system, Rainbow teams have more options than ever before to plan, attack, and diffuse these situations.
  • Destruction is at the heart of the siege gameplay. Leveraging Ubisoft Montreal’s proprietary Realblast engine, players now have the unprecedented ability to destroy environments. Walls can be shattered, opening new lines of fire, and ceiling and floors can be breached, creating new access points. Everything in the environment reacts realistically, dynamically, and uniquely based on the size and caliber of bullets you are using or the amount of explosives you have set. In Rainbow Six Siege, destruction is meaningful and mastering it is often the key to victory.
