Rainbow 6: Patriots is now a next-gen game, Ubisoft has confirmed.

Announced back in 2011 and subject to numerous rumours regarding its somewhat troubled development, the tactical shooter is now being made for next generation consoles.

“We can’t -- and we don’t want to -- make ten giant blockbuster games at the same time,” said Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key. 

“We’re absolutely making another Rainbow 6. We’ve already said so. We just, as we enter this new generation, have to make sure we make the right game at the right time with the right feature sets."

"And 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?’

“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.”

“Sometimes you have to take a step back and go ‘you know, I’m seeing the possibilities, but it's gonna take more time,’” added Key. “We don’t really have anything else to announce or say about Rainbow 6, but we will say it’s a really exciting project for us and we can’t wait to say more.”

To clarify, Key was then asked point blank if the new Rainbow 6 was now a next-gen game and he replied, “Yes.”

It’s notable that throughout the conversation, at no point did Key refer to the game as Rainbow 6: Patriots. is a name change as well as a generational jump on the cards?

I miss Rainbow Six as well, and it's such a shame that we live in a world saturated by such generic fps games. I want it to be done right not rushed, so take your time UBI make it good the first time.

At the moment this game is little better than vaporware as next to nothing has been shown of it bar one trailer.

People on Ubisoft's Facebook are flooding it with hate because they think Ubi thinks patriots are terrorists...really? It's a fucking video game!
