Unlike the previous games in the series, it has been confirmed that Rainbow Six Siege will not feature a single-player campaign. Instead, the game will focus on its 5v5 multiplayer and player versus AI matches.
Speaking with WhatCulture, Scott Mitchell, Art Director on the game broke the news saying, “There is no story mode per se. You go through training, where you get to experience different operators and their devices. You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customize matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things.”
Explaining further, he added, “It’s a pretty good training ground, and on top or that you’re unlocking the same content as you would playing in PvP. You’re still gaining stars, renown points, and new operatives.”
Releasing December 1st, Rainbow Six Siege is only the most recent high-profile game to go the no-single-player route, joining the likes of Titanfall, Evolve, and the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront. What do you think of the single-player for Rainbow Six Siege being a glorified tutorial? Let us know in the comments.
