Rainbow Six Siege Standard Edition Price Not Increasing

In a post on reddit, Ubisoft responds to the feedback to the announcement that new editions of Rainbow Six Siege are on the way (thanks IGN). There was considerable negative backlash to the price increase for the standard edition, and now they say the standard edition will not be going up, and they are giving veterans of the online shooter a reward for their loyalty. Here's the plan:
Our passionate and dedicated fans are the reason why Rainbow Six Siege is a success, especially the ones who have been with us from Day 1. Following yesterday’s announcement, we have seen the frustration from our current players rise to the top of the discussion. Below you will find our next steps for addressing these concerns.

  • For our current players, any of you that play an online match between now and March 6th will receive the upcoming Ash Sidewinder Elite skin for free. The Ash Sidewinder Elite will be automatically granted to your inventory at the launch of Year 3 Season 1.
  • For our newcomers and those of you concerned about introducing your friends to the game, we will be keeping the Standard Edition in the store at the current price.
  • For those of you who have raised concerns over the Starter Edition when it comes to acquiring Operators, we will be sharing more information about our next steps during the Six Invitational. We recognize that this has been a point of frustration for new players, as well as existing players bringing their friends into the game, and have been working on how to make this process more fluid.

The Rainbow Six Siege team has always incorporated player feedback into the game and the direction of the design. Your voice is incredibly important to us and we are monitoring your feedback closely on all aspects of this announcement. Any future updates will be posted here.

Agreed, I've been interested in the game since launch and the non-upgradeable Starter Edition bothered me every time I looked.

I'm glad the game is maintaining or growing its player base though, just to preserve the interesting mechanics. I was worried it would disappear and we'd have to wait a decade for someone to try again. I do wish it had a better publisher...
