It’s hard to believe that when it first launched, Rainbow Six Siege had pretty lukewarm reception, both from critics and from players. But slowly, the game has been built into a solid experience that many people are enjoying. If there’s one game that you can point to and say it’s proof that the GaaS (Games as a Service) can work, it’s Siege. And a lot of people are enjoying it- a lot.
Via the game’s official Twitter, Ubisoft announced that Siege has now reached a staggering 50 million players. That crazy number makes the ambition from the game’s eSports director to get to 100 Operators seem a lot more doable.
Rainbow Six Siege is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It’s free to play up until September 9th, so now is as good a time as any to jump in if you’re curious. You can also read up on the upcoming expansion, which will add new Operators, an updated map, and a lot more.
We've said it before, and we'll say it again…
We are here to stay.
