Rainbow Six 4 Announced

Ubisoft Announces a new Episode in the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six® Franchise on PlayStation®2, Xbox® and PC is the press release with the announcement Rainbow Six 4: No Subtitle Revealed, the next installment in the tactical shooter series. Here's a bit:
Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, today announced its plans to launch a new Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six opus on PlayStation®2, Xbox® and PC during Spring 2005. The game is being developed by two of Ubisoft's award-winning studios: Red Storm Entertainment, the maker of the original Rainbow Six, & Ubisoft's Montreal Studios.

In this new episode, you lead Team Rainbow, the world's most elite counter-terrorist unit, as they are called into action and unfamiliar territory to battle a bioterrorist threat. Stakes escalate as they are personally targeted by an evil terrorist organization. Used to protecting the lives of others, Team Rainbow must now embark on a mission to fight and save some of their own.

The next Rainbow Six installment will build on the ingredients that have made the Rainbow Six® franchise a runaway success, and will introduce new single player experience with a personal darker storyline, state-of-the-art equipment, and offer gamers the chance to play as two members of Team Rainbow: Ding Chavez, the fearless leader of Team Rainbow, and a new sniper role portrayed by Dieter Weber, who must cover his team's movement with deadly accuracy.

I might point out that Raven Shield was PC only. The consoles got "Rainbow Six 3" instead, and it was a rather different game, delivered significantly later after its own extended development cycle.
I know you should wait until a game is released to bash it, but it's really hard when they release videos like the R6:4 trailer.

I'd have been happy paying for Raven Shield with upgraded graphics, weapons and physics, but with the same core gameplay.

This seems to be a continuing trend in the gaming industry.
Heck, I still vividly remember my disappointment with the I'76 to I'82 transition.

While we're on the subject - what if there was a Raven-Shield-like game where one man in the squad was responsible for carrying "the bag". If you wanted to swap weapons or get more ammo (aside from what you were carrying), you'd have to go to the bag and get it.
Or perhaps the bag is just an item (albeit a large and cumbersome one), and anyone on the team can carry it and drop it, but while they're carrying it, they're slower, noisier, and can only use a sidearm. Imagine the tactics. (Ooh...covert bag stealage for crippling the opposing team...)
