Looks like somebody at Ubisoft played Space Beast Terror Fright or GTFO and said "Hey, let's do that with one of our well-known IPs!"

At least Battlefield will be alive and kicking again come October! I have no qualms about letting RB6 rest in pieces.

Maybe ground branch or the new swat successor games will fill the void of the original R6 games.

Zero Hour looks really promising if they implement better AI and animations to match the SWAT games.

They dumbed the AI down in Zero Hour in a recent patch because too many players were complaining about how difficult the missions were.  I've actually been able to solo through some of the tougher scenarios now.

Ground Branch and Ready or Not have potential. Ready or Not is being built as a single-player focused experience, so I'm very hopeful that we'll get an authentic old school R6/SWAT tactical experience there.

Are they even still working on Ready or Not?  I feel like I haven't heard of that one in years.

Oh yes. Very actively.

  Interesting.  I've generally spent a lot more time in Russian-style games like DCS, Il-2 CLoD, BoX and Rise of Flight and World of Warships and War Thunder and Enlisted and Mius Front than in Ubisoft (I did like one of the Far Cry-es with the radio towers and such).  The Russian gaming world definitely has its quirks, but at least they are relatively free of alien infestations.

Rainbow Six has been dead since Siege. The game is a joke.

Why is this a surprise?
Title: Re: Rainbow Six is Dead

^It's not a surprise. Just another disappointment. I think its been dead since Vegas 2.

My son plays Siege endlessly...for like years.  I wish I could love a game that much!

I've watched over his shoulder a few times and no wonder I get consistently schooled and pwnd in online shooters.  My brain just doesn't work that fast.

I just saw that GoG has Rainbow 6 and Ghost Recon on their summer sale for about $3 apiece.  I owned both games way back in the day but never did play them much.  For the price of a burrito I think I'll go ahead and pick them up.  I know Steam has a few of the R6 titles as well.

This is an F-35 pilot on Battlefield 2042. Steaming pile of something...

That is a total love letter to the franchise. The move even has a name. There are lots of references like that in the trailer. October canít come soon enough for me.
