A Message From The Dev Team on Launch Day

01/12/2015 10:00 AM

Seven years. 


It’s been seven years since the last Rainbow Six title was released on the market and today, Rainbow Six Siege is available to play on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. To say we are thrilled about this is an understatement. It’s a franchise that deserves to be taken seriously, and we weren’t ready to bring you a new title until we were confident the quality would meet what you would expect. With your help and input over the Closed Alpha and Closed Beta (among other testing periods), we are ready to begin the next phase of the Rainbow Six Siege journey.

A sketch from our Creative Director, Xavier Marquis 


We’d like to thank you for being a part of this with us - from our communities on Reddit and the forums, to people we’ve met at events, to the content creators who have used the game to entertain their own communities. Creative Director Xavier Marquis, who conceptualized the siege dynamic and codenamed the project Unbreakable, had this to say (translated from French): 


“In 1998, I was a player. I was approaching the embassy’s kitchen with my tactical group. While holding my MP5, I was placing explosives upon the door… Silence… Action and in less than 6 minutes I was done with the threat entrenched within the building’s walls. 

December 1st 2015, I am a developer on the Rainbow Six license and we are about to launch SIEGE, the shooter which I consider the most tactical in the world, which will require composure, speed and creativity. 


It is our pleasure, each day, to continue iterating, imagining already what you will be able to create with it. 

It is our pleasure to treat you as we wish to be treated as players ourselves. 

It is our pleasure to keep on being players while working on a game.” 


Today’s launch is only the beginning. There is at least a whole year of new content ahead of us, plus events and activities, not to mention competitive communities and tournaments to be held. We will continue to update and balance the game, and we encourage you to join the discussion on our subreddit and forums. 


We hope you have a great time with the game and are looking to seeing your tactics, accomplishments, and how you will push the evolution of the title. It’s been seven years, but the wait is over and there is still more to come.
