2.3m people play Rainbow Six Siege each day, Ubisoft claims

French publishing giant Ubisoft has revealed how well its hardcore shooter is doing 21 months after its initial release.

In a blog post on the firm’s site, senior communications manager Giancarlo Varanini says that 2.3m people pay the title each day. Not bad for the company’s premier ‘games as service’ title.

That’s not all, either. To date 20m people have played Rainbow Six Siege since its December 2015 release. This likely does not represent the total number of copies sold.

Back in 2015, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that Rainbow Six Siege would sell more than Far Cry 4’s 7m units over its lifetime due to post-launch support – something that has undeniably happened.

“Our community is growing and so is our ambition to make Siege a shooter that is here to stay,” product director Nicolas Lefebvre said.

“The next few weeks are very exciting as it marks the culmination of Operation Health and the release of our next season set in Hong Kong.”
