We haven't heard much about Rainbow 6: Patriots since it was revealed back in March. Maybe that's because there's a chance the hotly anticipated title won't be available until the next generation of gaming.
In speaking to Polygon , Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the game is definitely still in development but at this point, we might have to wait until a new set of gaming hardware is upon us. Said Guillemot:
"The only thing I can say is that we have a good team working on it, and it's really looking good. So when it will come, it will surprise the industry."
He added that he couldn't confirm an estimated release date and when asked if it might be a next-gen game, he replied simply- "There's a good chance it can be." Of course, that doesn't mean it'll only be available for the PS4/Orbis or Xbox 720; it just means it might also come out for one (or both) of the new platforms. Ubisoft still has to rely on the huge userbase of the current generation for super-huge titles like this.
So if it Patriots does turn out to be a next-gen game, that will be interesting, to say the least.
