Ubisoft Backtracks on Planned Rainbow Six Siege Censorship After Community Uproar

Share this:

Just last month, the Rainbow Six Siege community was up in arms over the publisher’s plans to censor parts of the game to cater to the Asian market. Well, it seems these concerns have been heard, as all Rainbow Six Siege censorship changes are being reverted back!

Here’s the quick FAQ posted by on the official site:

WHEN ARE THESE CHANGES BEING REVERTED IN THE INTERNATIONAL VERSION?

We will begin reverting these changes alongside the launch of Wind Bastion so no player is impacted; we ask you to be patient if some elements remain. We will carefully remove them all to the best of our ability considering the short timeframe and with the lowest impact on the season’s launch date and our build stability.

IS THERE ANY IMPACT ON THE NEXT SEASON?

Our intentions are to keep any impact to a minimum, though such changes may lead to a season delay and/or some instability as our testing and debug times are shortened. We will monitor our tests closely and keep you updated on any new development on the matter via our Rainbow Six Twitter.

WHY ARE YOU CHANGING STRATEGY NOW?

We have been following the conversation with our community closely over the past couple of weeks, alongside regular discussions with our internal Ubisoft team, and we want to ensure that the experience for all our players, especially those that have been with us from the beginning, remains as true to the original artistic intent as possible.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AS A CURRENT PLAYER BASED IN ASIA?

Current players in Asian territories can continue enjoying the same game as the other players.

We will be sure to keep you informed, as updates progress. In the meantime, we are excited to unveil Operation Wind Bastion on the Test Server later today, and cannot wait to introduce players to Kaid, Nomad, the new Fortress map and more in Year Three Season Four.
