Speaking with IGN, Ubisoft North American president, Laurent Detoc recently shed some light on why Rainbow 6: Patriots is "still cooking" and had to be moved over to next-gen consoles. 

“We had a core team. They had a good vision. They got started, and then the game wasn't working. So [they had] to start again,” Detoc explained to IGN. 

“...Rainbow had to be remade,” he continued. “Now they’re going to have the benefit of the new consoles, if and when it comes out. It’s one of those examples where you try, it doesn't work, you try again. If it doesn't work, we're not going to bring it to you.”

Additionally, in the interview, Detoc commented on the speculation that the game may drop the Patriots moniker in lieu of something more appropriate depending on whether the developers change the game thematic tones. 

“Could it become a shooter with another name in the end, because the team doesn't want to do counter-terrorist guys?" Detoc said. "Say they want to be in a mercenary setting? That’s possible.”
