Rainbow Six Siege Developers Are Mulling Over The Community's Desire For Solo Queue

The development team has taken note of player's wants.


Rainbow Six Siege is a team-based game that is at its best when you're playing with friends, but that won't always be the case--often players will want to jump in alone, and when they do, there's no option to solo queue. Solo queuing means being matched with other players who are also not in squads, so that you don't end up facing an extremely communicative, well-prepared team.

This is a feature that players have wanted for a while, and it seems that the developers are taking notice. As reported by VG247, the official Rainbow Six Siege Twitter account recently responded to a tweet about a lack of a solo queue option to let the user know that the idea "had been passed up the chain to the devs".

This is not confirmation that solo queue will actually be added, of course, but the team behind Rainbow Six Siege has been pretty open about things that are not coming to the game--respawns, for instance.

Rainbow Six Siege is in a good place right now, and recently broke its own record for the most concurrent players on Steam. The operator Tachanka is getting the game's most significant ever overhaul, and the game is being planned for launch on next-gen systems. But there is, of course, always room for improvement.

Another Rainbow Six game, a three-player co-op tactical shooter called Rainbow Six: Quarantine, is also in development for PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, and Xbox Series X.
