D’ya remember that fantastic trailer that saw a man being thrown out a window, at last year’s VGAs? That was for Rainbow 6: Patriots. Since then, the game hasn’t really come up in conversation. Back in March, some of the team left Ubisoft Montreal, but other than that, it seemed like it was in black out.
However, Polygon were speaking with Ubi CEO Yves Guillemot about the game and it’s still very much in development. Guillemot said, “The only thing I can say is that we have a good team working on it, and it’s really looking good”, and when asked about whether it would release on next-gen systems, he said that there is a “good chance that it can be”. The game is still listed for a current gen, 2013 release at this time.
Because of economic inequality, a terrorist group known as the True Patriots are taking matters into their own hands within New York City. Team Rainbow have been called in to try and sort the whole thing out. Choice is said to be a big part of the game, also. Similar to Spec Ops: The Line, Rainbow 6: Patriots will place the player in tough spots where decisions are crucial and extremely difficult.
Rainbow 6: Patriots is set to release in 2013 for Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3
