The lights are on
After a long hiatus of no information on the highly anticipated title, Rainbow 6 Patriots will be coming to next gen systems.
It seems that Ubisoft was waiting for the opportunities that next gen would allow rather than restricting the possibilities by only being offered on current systems.
“Rainbow 6 got caught in the transition of going to next-gen,” Tony Key, senior vice president of sales for Ubisoft in an interview with IGN. “Essentially we’re figuring out ‘well, are we making the right game for the right hardware systems?’”
Around the time of our December 2011 cover story, Ubisoft released an impressive introductory video that gave an inside look into what types of moral issues the plot would raise. However, GameStop's cancellation of preorders last month for Patriots spawned rumors that the title may be cancelled.
Unfortunately, there is no new information on the story or development of the title other than that it will be coming to the next console generation.
“We don’t really have anything else to announce or say about Rainbow 6," Key says. "But we will say it’s a really exciting project for us and we can’t wait to say more.”

I hope it hasn't changed much, I really liked the direction they were going with this one. It is however nice to know that it is now moving along towards a next-gen release.
i'm thinking 2015 at the earliest
Awesome. Glad to hear it! But wondering if the transition will affect the game in any way.
At least there's still hope.
I knew it! I thought ubisoft was gonna show it at their press conference though but we got the division which looks just as good
Awesome! I can't wait for it ^.^
