"Not Good Enough" Rainbow Six: Patriots Is Being Remade From Scratch

Rainbow 6: Patriots was announced in 2011 before being delayed to post-2013 then Ubisoft decided that it "wasn't working" and "had to be remade" from scratch for new-gen consoles.

"We had a core team. They had a good vision. They got started, and then the game wasn't working. So [they had] to start again," admitted Ubisoft North America president Laurent Detoc.

"There's an editorial group in Ubisoft, a big group, very influential. If the game is not good enough, they say it's not good enough. Most of the time, the team will say, 'yeah, I know.' But sometimes they want to continue in a direction where you say, 'no, it's not going to work,'" he explained.

But the team was incorrect on that one and in the end "Rainbow had to be remade." On the plus side however, the game Patriots is "going to have the benefit of the new consoles, if and when it comes out."

"It's one of those examples where you try, it doesn't work, you try again. If it doesn't work, we're not going to bring it to you," the Ubisoft CEO asserted.

The new Rainbow Six team has complete freedom to take or leave anything from the unreleased version. In fact, the game might not follow the same story or carry the Patriots moniker if they "don't want to do counter-terrorist guys".

Forced to be remade, or scrap.

The real reason behind why it's being "redone", is because of all the backlash it has received from the trailer alone. It places normal people, that are fed up with the banks that own us, and turning them into "homegrown" terrorists. Therefore, they attack a bank CEO in his house, most likely for laundering money for terror groups such as Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, and the Taliban(just like HSBC was caught doing), or for ruining and robbing our country blind. Also, shooting police officers in the game is a big no no as well. Over all, a massive fail. Tom Clancy was a truther, and I don't think he had any input on this game whatsoever.


UBisolf has released nothing but crap with the tom clancy lines for nearly 15 years. I miss tactical shooters the way they used to be. After rainbow 6 three athenas shield the franchise went to ****. They an IP for a tactical shooter and turned it into a ******* arcade shooter.
