The site's sources say restructuring at Ubisoft Montreal has gutted the development team on Rainbow 6 Patriots. According to the site, creative director David Sears, narrative director Richard Rouse III, lead designer Philippe Therien, and animation director Brent George have been removed from the project. In a statement provided to the site, Ubisoft confirmed Sears' departure and said the new creative director is Jean-Sebastien Decant.
Rainbow 6 Patriots is currently scheduled to hit the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2013. It is unclear if the rumored shakeup will have any effect on that release window. As of press time, Ubisoft had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.
[UPDATE] Ubisoft has confirmed to GameSpot that David Sears is no longer on the Rainbow Six: Patriots development team. Jean-Sebastien Decant is the new creative director. The publisher also provided the following statement regarding the game: "The development team is still hard at work to deliver the next installment of the revered Tom Clancy series, and more details on the game will be revealed at a later date."
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with assistance from Ubisoft Toronto and Red Storm, Rainbow 6 Patriots will follow the counterterrorism Team Rainbow squad as it tries to put down a group of American insurgents known as the True Patriots. As players look to suppress the True Patriots' budding revolution, they will be faced with "tough ethical decisions," according to Ubisoft.
whoever the new development team is PLEASE don't put a jump button or melee attack into the new patriots...if i wanted to play COD I would just buy a COD game...it would be cool to have the ability to move around will you pop out of cover though, like you can in Gears of War...oh yea one last thing FIX ATTACK AND DEFEND MODE!!! the dumbasses took the best game mode from rainbow vegas 1 and limited the number of respawns to 3 being the maximum...F*ck that, i want 20minute matches with unlimited respawns like back in the calypso casino days...
Could not agree with you more. Attack & Defend @ Calypso Casino was the greatest online game mode/map ever made. RSV1 didn't leave my XBOX tray for about a year. Tactical shooters are much more fun than COD.
I get the feeling that Ubisoft is pulling an EA and wants some half arsed game that can make as much money as possible. And then release a new DLC every week that should have been part of the actual game. I personally don't care who's in charge now. If the "key" people whom were part of that epic trailer were released, then no one else can fill their shoes. Meaning this game will be best used as toilet tissue. That's like taking out Derek Rose (of the Chicago Bulls) out of the game when their's 30 seconds left on the game clock and the Bulls are down by one point. It makes no sense!
I will be keeping this game on my radar, but Ubisoft has a habit of totally revamping their Clancy games to the point where they are nothing like the original games we fell in love with. This series, Ghost Recon, and Splinter Cell are nothing at all like they were on the original Xbox.
Dont get me wrong the tradiler look new look for Rainbow and was going the right way with Rainbow 6. But know after sacking 4 top pp something up for sure and i think it could to lead to problems know since there hire one . I dont see this a 213 window know and might have problems thats what i think.
