editions of Rainbow Six Siege
are on the way (thanks
). 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.
