Rainbow Six is one of the most popular franchise for Ubisoft, however, fans of the series have been divided on Rainbow Six Siege. The game also got mixed reviews at launch, and currently the game has 73% on Metacritic. However, Rainbow Six Siege active players have been increasing with time.

Ubisoft just released some numbers for Rainbow Six Siege active players to IGN. According to the company the daily active players for the game are higher compared to when the game launched.

Ubisoft notes that the percentage of the Rainbow Six Siege active players is up by 40 percent. The increase in the active players comes on the heels of the new content update, Operation Skull Rain, which launched last week.

Ubisoft recently started to ban thousands of players who were using cheats through their new detection system BattleEye. According to creative director, Xavier Marquis:

We invest in Rainbow Six Siege as we would invest in our own home – we check the pipes, the foundations and everything else. That’s because we are here to stay.

BattleEye prevents players from cheating and is currently launched for the game in beta state. The BattleEye client launches as player starts the game. As soon as this anti-cheat software detects a player for cheating, it blocks the cheat being used or the player is banned.

BattleEye have been evolving since it was first released in 2004, and have been used in many other games like Battlefield 2 and ARMA. According to Ubisoft:

To ensure that BattlEye runs smoothly with our game and prevents cheating, we will be performing tests on a large scale with all our PC players, and so for several weeks. We will keep you informed as we make sure that this anti-cheating client-side product is best adapted to our needs. We thank you in advance for your patience and feedback.

Rainbow Six Siege is a first person tactical multiplayer shooter for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
