“On Rainbow 6, it’s still cooking,” Corre told GTN. “It’s an important franchise for Ubisoft. We want to make sure, on this one, like all the other games we’re working on, that we bring it when we feel it’s perfect.”
When asked if the game will still be called Patriots and if it’s the same premise as the original reveal, Corre was coy.
“What we have to do, and it’s something that is very important for us, is that we bring a new iteration when we believe that we have enough creativity, enough innovation, to make something worth waiting for,” he said. “On some games, it happens more often. Creation is not an exact science. When we’re happy with what we see, when we think we can bring something new to gamers, then we say, ‘okay, this is a good time to release it.’”
At E3, Ubisoft confirmed to GTN that Rainbow 6: Patriots has shifted to next-gen consoles but never actually used the title "Patriots" in referring to it. Very few concrete details about Rainbow 6 have been revealed since its original announcement, and the game was even removed from GameStop's database back in May.
