Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege is 60 FPS on PC, PS4 and Xbox One confirms Ubisoft
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has confirmed that their upcoming Tom Clancy's game, Rainbow Six: Siege will run at 60 FPS. There's no release date confirmed yet for Rainbow Six: Siege, but 2015 has been confirmed as release year for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
In a recent interview to CVG, Yves was asked to explain the reason behind axing Rainbow Six Patriots and re-inventing it as Rainbow Six Siege at E3 2014, and to this he replied:
"We realised that we needed to go first with multiplayer. Before, when we made games, we were leading first with single-player and then taking the systems from that to do multi-player. With Rainbow Six we said, 'OK, we have to change our way of doing things' - lead with mutli-player first and then make single-player from that."
"That's what made us change the game totally. We decided to restart with that in mind. The decision came from what we were seeing in the marketplace and because we wanted to do a 60 frames-per-second multi-player game."
He further explained:
"It really came from the gameplay side. We felt that the only chance we had to come with something that would be impressive in the online FPS arena was to have 60 frames-per-second and no limits imposed by having single-player. That's what made us change direction."
This means, Ubisoft realised that Rainbow Six needed to be a multiplayer game first as that's the way this of FPS is going, and this is why Rainbow Six: Siege Patriots was canned.
So there you have it folks, Rainbow Six Siege will run at 60 FPS. The game looks pretty impressive, watch the E3 2014 below. Amazon has started taking pre-orders for the game.
