Alexandre Remy from Ubisoft officially confirmed that there are no plans for Rainbow Six Siege sequel as the devs want to focus on bringing Siege to next-generation consoles and continue with content updates for many years to come.

Rainbow Six Siege's is one of the most successful titles from Ubisoft and many would think that the publisher are looking to release more games in a similar fashion but the reality is - Ubisoft's are perfectly happy with Siege and new games in the series are not something they are even considering.

This has been now officially confirmed by Rainbow Six Brand Director, Alexandre Remy in an interview with Daily Star, where he talked about new games and cross-generation leap for Siege.

Remy said that Ubisoft's mission is to deliver more than 100 playable in-game characters and since the number is currently 44, it really says a lot about the company's plans for the sequel. "We don’t want a sequel whatsoever," Remy was clear in his answer.

However, Ubisoft have some other big plans for Rainbow Six Siege. Remy and the team want to make a generational leap to bring the beloved shooter to next-gen consoles - PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two.

Ubisoft's plan is to make it in a way that doesn't break off from Siege in its current state, which hints at potential cross-play between all platforms.

“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.”

Remy mentioned that once they eventually release the game on new consoles, those who play on stronger hardware should not have an advantage over those who decide to stay on current-gen consoles - PS4 and Xbox One. Apparently, Ubisoft are making great efforts that when next gen comes in, "they are treated as a high-end PC versus another PC."
