It appears that Rainbow Six will abandon all single-player campaigns in the foreseeable future. Despite a certain amount of people wanting a single-player campaign, Rainbow Six Brand Director Alexandre Remy claimed that the solo/single-player experience for the Rainbow Six franchise is dead.
As Remy told DailyStar:
“No, no, no. The Rainbow Six solo/singleplayer experience is dead.
For Siege, forget about a solo campaign. We want this game to be a pure competitive multiplayer experience. All of our resources are going in that direction and to invest those resources elsewhere would be a digression.
When you have a game that requires so much support, and so much caring in patching and balancing, I don’t think you have the luxury to divert.
Our fans expect a certain level of quality and a mastery in our games that is extremely high. Why would you only make an OK-ish solo campaign?”
Remy does have a point here. Instead of offering a mediocre single-player experience, developers should definitely focus on what the vast majority of its fans wants. Still, it’s a bit disheartening hearing that we won’t be getting a single-player story-driven mode in the future Rainbow Six games.
Speaking of which, rumour has it that a new Rainbow Six game will be announced during Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press conference. This new Rainbow Six game is called Rainbow Six Quarantine and is a co-op PVE shooter.
Update: Rainbow Six Quarantine is a co-op PVE shooter that will be announced at Ubisoft's E3 2019
