Ubisoft is censoring Rainbow Six Siege, will remove environmental blood, gambling and sexual content

Ubisoft has announced that it will be censoring Rainbow Six Siege. The team is currently working towards preparing Rainbow Six Siege for expansion into Asian territories and as such, there will be some adjustments made to its maps and icons to ensure compliance. These changes will affect all players, though as the French company noted none of these changes will have an impact on gameplay.

Going into more details, Ubisoft will remove all gambling references (such as pachinkos) from the environment. The team will also remove some environmental blood, though it did state that blood spatter from shots will remain. Ubisoft will also remove all sexual content from the game, and has replaced some posters (like a skull poster) with more family-oriented ones.

Ubisoft stated it wants to maintain a single build so that it is able to reduce the duplication of work on the development side. This will allow the team to be more agile, and address issues more quickly. Still, and since the game has been uncensored for the entire world all these past years, it feels like giving its fans the middle finger. Yes, business-wise it makes sense but Ubisoft should try and think outside the box and put players above profits.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
