Rainbow Six Siege Mobile: Release Date, survey, and more
Ubisoft could be developing a mobile version of its popular competitive shooter Rainbow Six Siege. Here’s everything we know so far.
Ubisoft released Tom Clancey’s Rainbow Six Siege in 2015, and six years later, it’s stronger than it’s ever been. While it isn’t a mainstream Esports title you hear of often like League of Legends or Call of Duty, it still maintains a very respectable player count.
Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical shooter with light hero elements. While games like Overwatch focus heavily on hero abilities, Siege relies more on positioning and the player’s ability to aim.
Now, it seems that Ubisoft is flirting with the idea of bringing one of its most successful titles to mobile platforms. Rainbow Six Siege Mobile could be a reality shortly. Here’s everything we know about the potential title.
Rainbow Six Mobile Survey Leak
There haven’t been any official announcements made by Ubisoft regarding a mobile shooter they are developing. However, Reddit user u/am335 posted screenshots from a survey sent from Ubisoft Halifax.
The survey was targeted towards mobile gamers. It asked how many hours players spend enjoying other mobile titles such as Fortnite, PUBG, and CoD Mobile.
It also asked various questions regarding the player’s familiarity with Rainbow Six Siege. This doesn’t confirm that Rainbow Six is coming to mobile platforms, but it strongly hints at the possibility.
Rainbow Six Siege Mobile Release Date
As of right now, hasn’t confirmed the existence of Rainbow Six Siege Mobile. However, players believe that the survey is enough evidence to believe otherwise.
We will update this article to reflect the proper release date if Ubisoft makes an official announcement.
Ubisoft Sues Rainbow Six Mobile Clone
Rainbow Six Siege is an intensive game, but an R6 clone has already been proven to run fine on mobile hardware. The clone was called Area F2, and Ubisoft had it shut down in May of 2020.
The CQB FPS strategy game was identical to Rainbow Six, and Ubisoft shut it down to protect its IP. However, some players believe that Ubisoft shut down Area F2 because of its plans to launch a mobile FPS strategy game.
There’s also a possibility that we receive a completely different Ubisoft title on mobile. With the upcoming release of Ghost Recon Frontline, the Battle Royale style game could release on mobile platforms.
