There’s just no stopping this game.
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.
