Rainbow Six 4 = Lockdown

Ubisoft announces that the next Rainbow Six game will be titled Rainbow Six: Lockdown, while offering more details on the project:
SAN FRANCISCO – December 23, 2004 – Ubisoft today announced that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 4 (working title), will now be officially titled Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Lockdown™. 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 Studio. For continuous up-to-date news on Rainbow Six: Lockdown, visit the teaser website at: http://www.rainbowsixgame.com.

In Rainbow Six: Lockdown, players lead Team Rainbow, the world’s most elite counter-terrorist unit, as they are called into action and dispatched into 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.

Rainbow Six: Lockdown will build on the ingredients that have made the Rainbow Six® franchise a runaway success, and will introduce a 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.

Multiplayer modes will return with enhanced features. Additionally, PlayStation®2 and Xbox® versions will get new & amazing exclusive modes that will bring the multiplayer experience to a further level of excellence.

Game features include:

    • Stunning graphics and ultra-realistic “ragdoll” physics deliver staggering realism and spectacular close quarter firefights.
    • Superior multiplayer experience: One of the best multiplayer games ever returns with the classics: Adversarial & Cooperative modes through Split-Screen & on-line. Additional exclusive modes will make their appearance with:
        o PlayStation®2 - New Rivalry Mode pits Rainbow operatives against trained mercenaries in objective-driven, team-based adversarial gameplay.
        o New Xbox® Live™ “Career Mode” allows players to create their own operative, improve their skills and acquire extra equipment in all-new objective-based missions.
    • Increasingly intelligent enemy A.I.
    • New weapons and equipment.
    • Tension-building sound effects.

Wow. We can play as one of two possible characters? Thanks, Ubi!

I remember when R6 had, what, over a dozen operatives? As part of that mythical tactical concept known as a squad? And you could play these really cool gametypes (one of which was called Defend) which provided a lot of replayability?

Yeah, bringing these types of things back might be cool. Of course, that's presuming Lockdown doesn't refer to the copy protection and patching woes the series has had.

Seems like one step forward, two steps back since the release of Rogue Spear. Why not just keep pulling features?
