Rainbow Six Siege's Director States That a Sequel is Not Required

Gamers should not expect a sequel to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege any time soon. 

Ubisoft has no plans to do a sequel for Rainbow Six Siege. In a Reddit AMA, creative director Leroy Athanassof spoke on whether or not the company wishes to do a sequel for the shooter (via Gamingbolt). He states that making a sequel is not something that the development team wants to do. Instead, they would rather continue working on the current frame that has been established, and would like to continue doing renovations. 

"Siege is an evolving game," Athanassof stated. "The Siege of the future will be dramatically different from today's Siege, to the point where we would call it Siege 2. However, as a team, we strongly believe we can bring about these changes in an incremental way, within the current Siege framework. 

"Siege 2 would mean a new game, a new environment, probably a new inventory and maybe a new dev team. We do not feel that this is what is needed for the community. We care about your investment in the game, we do not want to move to a new one. Instead, we want to protect your investment and increase its value by making it your current 'home' (which is Siege) even better. It's like renovations to your old house to make it up to date, shiny and appealing." 

Rainbow Six Siege first released in December of 2016. The game got at a lukewarm reception at launch, and was considered dead on arrival. However, the game's community has grown exponentially and now boasts millions of players, and is a massive success. The game has added a wealth of content over the years, giving gamers a reason to keep on playing. 

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
