As the title says and the game being already rumoured by Fusible.Com I can confirm it now that the next Rainbow Six will be announce on Xbox World Magazine in the upcoming month (if I understood correctly from my contact). Last night I got home with the assets; logos, arts, the covers and rendered game screens from a buddy that I know in marketing. I will not going to show anything for the moment as I will let the mag do his work, but what I can tell is that the logo is 6 with the pistol that replace the bottom circle. The arts backgrounds are with the New York in fire and the renders characters are very similiar to Homefront, yet the clothes are still based with police rainbow six gears. What I understood the plot will go between a large group of revolutionary terrorists and of course the police.

And yes, the game is called Rainbow Six: Patriots.

After what they did to ghost recon and splinter cell, I don't know.

Ubisoft is kinda all over the place though, so it could turn out good, maybe.

I've lost all my faith in Ubisoft this generation. All their games seem to be smoke and mirror acts.

I'm sure this game will be technically impressive, but not expecting much.

This is quite the surprise if it's truly going to be in XWM soon. I LOVED the Rainbow Six PC games. Raven Shield <3 but this will most likely be like Vegas :( Still pretty awesome the series isn't "dead".

Oh, another console game then... Guess it will be like Vegas... Or maybe like Splinter Cell: Conviction, lol. Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll have a team like GRIN or better than they were making the PC version and making it more tactical, but with a decent budget this time. Still, having screens and not showing them? Boo.

Edit: oh, I forgot the moral choices shit. Where's my SWAT 5...

Indeed it is. I can give or take the SP but Deniable Ops is pure old school Splinter Cell with none of the silliness from the old games i.e A highly trained operative can't take out a 8 dollar an hour security guard, if he has to react quickly.

Instead a benny hill runaround occurs until Sam usually ends up crumpled on the floor.

Anyway new Rainbow Six lets hope it's better than the dire RSV2.

Rumour: Rainbow Six Set to Invade New York With Home-Grown Terrorism

A new interpretation of the classic Rainbow Six, the tough-as-nails tactical shooter that asked gamers to carefully plan out the nuance of a breach like a choreographed dance, is in the works, a source familiar with the unannounced Ubisoft shooter tell Kotaku.

We've also heard that the game will in many ways be a departure from the sameness found in Rainbow Six: Vegas and its sequel, and a return to what helped separate the shooter from others of its ilk.

It's unclear if the in-development game will be shown at E3.

The original Rainbow Six is more tactical and focused on stealth than on weapons. Before each mission, in those early games, players were asked to view a briefing and then build a team, pick their weapons and equipment and finally create waypoints that the secondary members of the team would follow. Once the mission started, players had only control of one team member at a time.

Rainbow Six will be a far more story-driven game than previous iterations of the Tom Clancy branded title. The game is meant to take a step in a different direction, telling a bigger, much more gritty cinematic story than previous versions of the game.

In this still-to-be-titled Rainbow Six, players will be tasked with stopping a homegrown terrorist group operating in America. The group, fed up with the greed of Wall Street and the government that acts to protect them, decides to target New York City.

While the gameplay is based on some classic Rainbow Six mechanics, there is a brand new cover system that takes you out of the first-person perspective and into the third.

A new icon-rich graphics style helps to highlight members of your team during a mission and other pertinent information.

Contacted Thursday, Ubisoft declined to comment

Wait, the next R6 is gonna be about shooting the Wall Street Protesters in the head?

Well, who's surprised. Original Clancy R6 book was about shooting animal rights activists in the head.

Oh man what I'd give for a 4player Deniable Ops-style co-op mode, split into 2 teams...infiltrating a building or location from different insertion points.


That's it, I just hyped myself up for an inevitable disappointment. :(

I loved Vegas 1. Vegas 2 seemed like a cut and paste job. Also, fidelity on the PC version of Vegas 2 was way below where it should have been for the time it came out.

I found Vegas' mechanics to be ridiculously compelling for some reason. The mechanics themselves carried Vegas 2 for me despite no real leaps above the original.

Agree with this. Vegas 2 felt like a direct to video job. it didn't have the intensity or fun that the first game had.

I liked V2 way more, because of the better co-op mechanics.
You could customize your characters and shit, one of the best splitscreen i've had in recent years.

I also hope they cram some really stupid Kinect stuff into this game, so I can lose interest just as fast as I did when I saw the new Ghost Recon demoed for the first time.

That's a bit backwards is it not? The GR Kinect stuff is all optional.

Please let the multiplayer be like Rainbow Six 3! Actually, just give me one feature back: the ability to peak around corners by leaning one way or the other, instead of going into third person view. It were so exciting going around, sneaking and outplaying your foes in battles. But it doesn't look like it looking at the leak.

Rainbow six is supposed to be an international counter-terrorism force, hence many colored people, hence rainbow. And six because rainbow contains 6 colors and maybe 6 Countries are involved in the OPs. But oh well atleast it's not Ponyville seven

I like the reason behind.
