Rainbow Six Siege cheaters won’t be treated kindly according to Ubisoft. They are being banned on their first offense and won’t be allowed access to the multiplayer title.
Cheating/Modding/Hacking: Player is running a modified or otherwise unauthorized version of the game client or a third party software which provides any sort of unfair advantage (wallhacks, aimhacks…) or causing detriment to other players’ experience: Maximum penalty is permanent ban on first offense.
Rainbow Six Siege players will be able to report suspicious activities but Ubisoft will inspect thoroughly before banning any player. Ubisoft made it very clear that cheaters are not welcomed in Rainbow Six Siege.
We are currently assessing and testing several client-side anti-cheat options in addition to FairFight and can confirm that we’ll be implementing one in the future. We will share additional information as soon as we are ready.
We will be continuing to support the community on this issue, and we want to assure you that if a player is using cheating software, they are not welcome in Rainbow Six Siege.
Rainbow Six Siege is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It is a decent shooter but is slowly fading away in a genre saturated with similar and much better games.
Ubisoft seems to be losing its touch but we hope they’ll bounce back with the release of Watch Dogs 2 and Ghost Recon Wildlands later this year.
Ubisoft’s E3 press event is something you should keep an eye out for. Tune to SegmentNext on June 12 for the all news from E3 2016.
