Rainbow Six Siege is a multiplayer title developed by Ubisoft for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 and the game doesn’t have a single-player campaign which was scrapped with Rainbow Six Patriots and according to the game director, a singleplayer campaign can’t exist for Rainbow Six Siege.
Speaking in an interview at 2018 Six Invitationals, Game Director Xavier Marquis talked about why there is no Rainbow Six Siege singleplayer campaign saying that “no, no campaign as a real, single campaign – it can never exist in the game because that is not the purpose”.
He added that the development team wants to focus on the multiplayer but, also wants to explore the universe of Rainbow Six “by different means”. He added that the studio thinking about “videos and maybe comics” to explore the game’s universe.
He added that the team is also looking other means to explore the universe “because it fits perfectly with the fact that we want to secure the multiplayer”.
Back in 2011, Ubisoft was working on Rainbow Six Patriots, a singleplayer title but, it was canceled in 2014 and the singleplayer campaign was also scrapped with it.
It is unclear if Ubisoft will ever develop a single-player Rainbow Six game and with the Siege’s multiplayer going strong the chances of that are very slim.
In related news, Ubisoft will be rolling out Operation Chimera in March that will bring two new operators Lion and Finka. Lion is a French bioterror specialist while Finka is a Russian specialist. Operation Chimera will go live on March 6.
