Ubisoft has shed light on exactly whyRainbox Six: Patriotswas canceled, citing last-gen concepts inherent in the production of the game as a primary reason.
"To be completely transparent, I worked on Patriots – on Rainbow Six for three-and-a-half years – and Patriots was old-gen. Xbox 360 and PS3," Ubisoft technical artist Oliver CouturetoldRock, Paper, Shotgun. "Next-gen consoles were just around the corner, and we were like, ‘OK, we want to also have a next-gen experience. What can we do for that?’
"We were trying stuff out with destruction technology, and we realized destruction really changes the game. We tried to see how it could fit with old-gen, but it just didn’t work out. So for us it was just a better solution to clean the slate, reset, and make what’s best for the players."
The studio has since gone in a different direction withRainbow Six: Siege, which was revealed earlier this month at Ubisoft's E3 press conference. You can check out its stunning debut right hereand be sure to read our in-depth previewas well.
