The confirmation comes not long after the recent tease.
Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege is bar none one of the biggest games in the industry right now, and has been for several years running. It’s a game that’s been consistently excellent for a long time now, having revived itself after a poor launch, while constant updates and post-launch additions and improvements have also led to a large, dedicated, and ever-growing playerbase.
Now, it seems that playerbase is going to grow even larger. After the recent (not-so-subtle) tease, it has now been officially confirmed that Rainbow Six Siege will be coming to Xbox Game Pass for console and Android devices (via cloud streaming) on October 22, later this week.
This is, of course, exactly the kind of game that could benefit greatly from being on Game Pass, allowing players who ordinarily wouldn’t purchase it the chance to give it a go for no cost, and then giving it a permanent purchase if they find it’s to their liking. It remains to be seen how long it will stick around on the service.
Rainbow Six Siege is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Ubisoft have confirmed that it will release for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S later this year with 4K/120 FPS support.
