Ubisoft Restarted Rainbow Six: Patriots Development

IGN speaks with Laurent Detoc, president of Ubisoft North America, who explains Ubisoft's silence following a shakeup to the development team for Rainbow Six: Patriots. Detoc now admits they basically had to start over on the shooter sequel: "We had a core team. They had a good vision. They got started, and then the game wasn’t working. So [they had] to start again," Detoc explained. "There’s an editorial group in Ubisoft, a big group, very influential. If the game is not good enough, they say it’s not good enough. Most of the time, the team will say, ‘yeah, I know.’ But sometimes they want to continue in a direction where you say, ‘no, it’s not going to work’." He goes on to say the new console generation will benefit the final product, and he does not rule out the prospect that the Patriots name and the proposed counter-terrorism storyline may be ditched before it's all said and done.
