Rainbow Six: Siege hits 25m players

Rainbow Six: Siege hits 25m players

Ubisoft has announced the latest sales milestone for its tactical shooter Rainbow Six: Siege.

The French publisher has revealed that 25m people have played the title, which launched at the end of 2015. At last count, in August, the title had been played by 20m people, and 2.3m people each day. That the game has somehow added five million extra players in the last four months is quite the feat if we're being honest.

This news follows Ubisoft rolling out the latest content expansion for the game, Operation White Noise. The firm has announced its intention to do a a third year of content for the shooter, too.

“Player investment has been core to the success of the game with longevity being always very important to us. As the game progressed, we continued to develop it with the community in mind,” the game's brand director Alexandre Remy said.

“We’re thrilled to see that the community has embraced the game, brought along their friends, and really pushed our understanding of what’s possible with what we’ve created.”

Recently the title received new options to let users report toxic behaviour within the game. We also caught up with François-Xavier Deniele at Gamescom to see what Ubisoft has learnt from running Rainbow Six Siege over the last two years.
