Rainbow Six Patriots "Wasn't Working," Must Be Rebooted
Rainbow Six Patriots was announced back in November 2011, and they initially said it would launch this year.
But as 2013 is rapidly drawing to a close, Ubisoft needed to explain what had become of the promising new series entry. So, North American president Laurent Detoc confirmed to IGN that in fact, despite a solid foundation, it just "wasn't working:"
"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."
Detoc further confirmed that the rebooted title will indeed launch for the new consoles, so the game can benefit from the added power. However, he said "if and when" the title releases, so its arrival is hardly a foregone conclusion. There's also a chance that the game's concept and subject matter may change significantly, so be prepared for a very different Patriots the next time you see it.
Me, I just want that long-awaited Beyond Good & Evil sequel. I'm hoping the HD iteration of the game sold well enough on the PSN to convince Ubisoft to get moving on that new BG&E.
