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.

Eh, Hidden & Dangerous was always better than Rainbow Six...

I LOVED Hidden and Dangerous! It had its issues but it remains one of my best gaming memories ever!

To this date I still can't find better 4 player coop. I mean, it was a piece of shit broken game, but damn it was fun.

They should just make "Rainbow Six: Vegas 3"

What is wrong with you?
All statements are incorrect.
Hidden and Dangerous was great, but not comparable really.
I still play RvS whenever I want good MP - it still has a strong fanbase and tons of maps being made.
There just isn't anything else to compare it with - ARMA 3 is large scale, but other than that I think there are basically only 2 realistic games available for me at least.

We need to get back to non-arcade shooters eventually!

Also I have good faith in these guys fucking this one up again, so no worries there.

I really hope this follows the rainbow six, r6 rogue spear, and raven shield versions. Vegas versions looked wack.

i.e. the worst thing that could happen to a "rainbow six" game

Ya the planning stage was the bulk of the time at points, but after several failed attempts on a level you could make the AI controlled teamates do it all while calling out go signals and sitting at the start.

I loved the original Rainbow Six and its sequel, but they kicked my ass. I remember the planning stage taking far longer than the execution stage, and after all that my plan never worked out like I wanted it to and the hostages always were killed.

I actually really like the R6 Vegas games, but they were so different from the originals that it really felt like they belonged in a different series.

Loved Rainbow Six until it was no longer tactical. But jesus, never has hallway fighting been more intense or open areas so frightening.

The book was a good read as well.
