Ubisoft is developing a Rainbow Six mobile game, according to a report by Tom Henderson for Exputer. It will be Rainbow Six Siege Mobile, according to the report, and it’s apparently in development at Ubisoft in conjunction with Tencent’s WeGame. Mobile games based on Assassin’s Creed and The Division are also said to be in the works, although less information is known about these supposed projects.
The existence of a Tencent game with Ubisoft comes as no surprise, as Tencent said in its latest earnings report this week that it is working with Ubisoft on several new projects. The first of them should be launched in 2023.
Expecter’s report states that the Rainbow Six Siege mobile game will be revealed on April 6th. GameSpot will report back with more details as they are revealed.
Rainbow Six would be just the latest major franchise to make the leap to mobile, like Call of Duty, FIFA, Madden, Apex Legends and many more have done before. That’s no surprise, as mobile is bigger and more lucrative than the console/PC space. Looking ahead, Rockstar is releasing a mobile edition of GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition later this year.
The report goes on to say that Tencent will also help Ubisoft bring Assassin’s Creed and The Division to mobile through their own new games, which follows Tencent’s public disclosure that it is working with Ubisoft on multiple titles in the future. No details about these supposed projects are available.
Rainbow Six Siege has been one of Ubisoft’s biggest successes in recent years. After debuting in 2015 to mixed reaction, the game has been consistently and impressively supported over the years, and it now boasts over 70 million players. GameSpot scored the game a rare 10/10 in our Rainbow Six Siege review.
