Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege is available now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Siege is mainly online multiplayer but there are certain modes we can play offline, or so we thought.
Ubisoft made a statement a few months ago that players will be able to play the Terrorist Hunt mode offline. However, as we now know, that is not the case. Although it was clearly mentioned that Terrorist Hunt is offline, Siege won’t allow players to access in without an internet connection.
This isn’t the first a company has straight out lied to our faces. We can’t rule out the possibility of an employee mistakenly making such statement, but the bottom line is that Siege’s release build-up was misleading.
The creative vision for Rainbow Six Siege has always been strongly focused on a compelling cooperative and multiplayer experience. The game supports solo play when playing Terrorist Hunt offline & online and we will provide further details on single-player content in the near future.
Thanks for all your support!
This one statement isn’t the only problem, on Amazon’s support page a fan asked if Terrorist Hunt is offline, Ubisoft Support Manufacturer replied:
Thanks for your question.
Yes, you can play Rainbow Six Siege offline vs AI in game modes such as ‘Terrorist Hunt’.
All of the Terrorist Hunt modes can be tackled solo as well, although difficulty will not scale down for you and, of course, you’ll still have only one life.

Hope this helps answer your question!
These two statement were provided by Ubisoft before the release of Siege. Meanwhile, below is another statement from the company after its release.
An internet connection is required to play Terrorist Hunt mode. I will pass long your desire to see it as an offline mode as well! Currently only situations and custom multiplayer matches are available offline.
Who screwed up and where isn’t known, but Ubisoft is surely in a bit of pickle right now.
