If you have been holding out hope that Ubisoft might one day create a full-blown sequel to Rainbow [...]
In a recent AMA session over on Reddit, the team behind Rainbow Six Siege was asked about the potential for a sequel to come about at some point in the future. In short, the game's Creative Director, Leroy Athanassoff, explained that this is something that the studio doesn't want to pursue for a number of reasons. "Siege is an evolving game - the Siege of the future will be dramatically different from today's Siege, to the point where we could call it Siege 2. However, as a team, we strongly believe we can bring about these changes in an incremental way, within the current Siege framework," Athanassoff said of the notion of creating a sequel.
"Siege 2 would mean a new game, a new environment, probably a new inventory and maybe a new dev team. We do not feel that this is what is needed for the community," Athanassoff went on to further explain. "We care about your investment in the game, we do not want to move to a new one. Instead, we want to protect your investment and increase its value by making your current “home” (which is SIEGE) even better."
