The recent Ubisoft Forward spoke aplenty about its premiere title Rainbow Six Siege. The devs tackled the upcoming World Cup, the addition of Sam Fisher, and a lot more.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical shooter video game that has taken the gaming community by storm. It launched in 2015, but just like other famed titles such as Fortnite or Dota 2, it never grows old.
In fact, it’s constantly developing over the years. This year, it welcomed its newest character addition from a classic title of the same Tom Clancy franchise, Sam Fisher.
Sam Fisher newest “Rainbow Six Siege” member
Yet again, hopeful fans of Splinter Cell got another “anything but” moment. As previously reported, the Sam Fisher character has been crossed over in many of Ubisoft’s titles. The developers even made a new mobile game with him starring.
But still no sign of a new Splinter Cell title.
Sam Fisher’s story for the Rainbow Six Siege gameplay was highlighted in Thursday’s event. Although, the news of his crossover was announced last August.
In his new mission, it’s as if he wants people to forget that he’s Sam Fisher, as he wants to be called “Zero.” Is this one way of telling its hopeful followers that Splinter Cell will never see the light of day?
The arrival of Sam “Zero” Fisher marks the new season of Rainbow Six Siege, entitled “Operation Shadow Legacy.”
Accordingly, it “silently” went live on the same day as the Ubisoft Forward, per Dot Esports. It’s the biggest update the players have ever seen since 2017, during the Operation Health season.
“Rainbow Six Siege” World Cup
Unfortunately, more details about the international R6 eSports event were held off. This means information about World Cup 2021 such as its “dates, prize pool, and format” will be announced at a later date.
What we do know is that NBA superstar Tony Parker has been named R6′s World Cup ambassador.
LAN is a big aspect in eSports, so an online tourney is likely the Ubisoft’s last resort or maybe not even an option at all.
In other news, per Eurogamer, R6 will have “a free next-gen console upgrade.” Accordingly, the game will run on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, at “120 frames per second and 4K resolution.”
