Rainbow Six Siege won’t have a solo campaign

Hope you like training with bots

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will not feature a traditional single-player campaign.

Speaking at EGX this weekend, Ubisoft’s Scott Mitchell, the art director on Rainbow Six Siege, confirmed the game’s focus is on multiplayer, with little in the way of offline modes to speak of.

“There is no story mode per se,” he said. “You go through training, where you get to experience different operators and their devices. You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customize matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things.

“It’s a pretty good training ground,” Mitchell added. “And on top or that you’re unlocking the same content as you would playing in PvP. You’re still gaining stars, renown points, and new operatives.”

Rainbow Six Siege joins a growing number of big-budget shooters shying away from single-player, including Evolve, Star Wars Battlefront, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III‘s last generation ports.

Ubisoft plans to release the title on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One on December 1.
