Rainbow 6: Patriots moved to next-gen platforms

The long-delayed Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots is headed to next-generation platforms, according to a report from IGN, citing Ubisoft senior VP Tony Key.

"Rainbow 6 got caught in the transition of going to next-gen and essentially we're figuring out ‘well, are we making the right game for the right hardware systems?'" Key said at E3 2013. Originally, Rainbow 6: Patriots was slated for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. "Sometimes you have to take a step back and go ‘you know, I'm seeing the possibilities, but it's gonna take more time.'"

Last November, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot told Polygon "there's a good chance" that the missing in action Rainbow 6 game would come to then-unannounced next-gen consoles and PC.

In May, listings for Rainbow 6: Patriots were removed from retailer GameStop's database.

Rainbow 6: Patriots was announced in late 2011. Ubisoft Montreal is developing the game.
