At the start of November Ubisoft revealed plans to sanitise sections of Rainbow Six Siege, removing sexual imagery, blood splatter, and gambling machines. This was because they had a separate build for the Asian markets where such things are banned, and they wanted to streamline their development process.
As you might expect, the internet doesn’t like things being removed from games even if they are purely cosmetic, “Since then, our community and players have raised concerns,” Ubisoft state rather diplomatically.
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.
Ubisoft will now begin to revert the game back to it’s original look, although the say it will take a little time and ask players to be patient.
