Talking to The Daily Star at the Pro League Season IX Finals in Milan, Rainbow Six brand director, Alexandre Remy said that they haven’t even considered making a sequel. What they really want is for the game to have 100 operators, which wouldn’t be crazy, since they’re already at 48.
The other wish they have is to keep the players together and make the transition to next-gen consoles as painless as possible.
“The reason behind this is we don't want to segregate our community between the different platforms. In an ideal world tomorrow, we’d love players from every platform to be able to play together. We are approaching next-gen with the same spirit.”
The idea is to make use of the backwards compatibility that both consoles will have and to simply upgrade the current game while making use of the new and better hardware that will be available. Remy compared it to PC gaming, stating that the next gen consoles should be seen as high-end PCs compared to any other PC.
“The strength of any multiplayer game is the size of its community, so I do believe that we have to make every effort possible that when next gen comes in, they are treated as a high-end PC versus another PC.”
