Could it be a Rainbow Six Online, like Ghost Recon Online when it appears in a few months, or could it be a reworking of the original, or a simple continuation of the series? We can only speculate, but here's the evidence so far that something is coming...so without further addo, here's our...
TOP THREE REASONS A NEW RAINBOW SIX IS COMING!
1. Sean PopeJoy's Resume
Sean has been a sound engineer for around 4 years and according to his LinkedIn profile he's worked on some big budget movies, and until quite recently it also boasted that he worked on a new Rainbow Six demo. That part of his resume has mysteriously disappeared after it was noted by a main stream gaming news site though. This is not the first time we've seen details of a game break in a resume before, and it won't be the last.
Here's what the resume said at the begining of May 2011 before it was altered.
"...developed Pro Tools sessions from Ubisoft audio for the game demo of Rainbow Six (2011)"
Pretty convicning stuff.
Late in 2009 Ubisoft purchased domain name Rainbowsix-Bd.com. In 2011 Ubisoft renewed that domain indicating that they still had plans for something Rainbow Six related with the initials "Bd". That's a totally mystery, but it is also excellent evisdence for a new Rainbow Six title.
3. Sparkling Water for Rainbow Six
In December 2010 Ubisoft published a joke video on their Youtube channel that mentioned Rainbow Six several times in the making of a new game. Why on earth would Ubisoft spend money hiring actors and creating this spoof video to talk about a series that was, as far as we knew, dead in the water. But even more mysterious, Ubisoft has NEVER promoted a Rainbow Six (or Ghost Recon) game in this manner before; up until now, their modus operandi has been, in a word, deniability through silence.
This has to be the biggest hint to date that the Rainbow Six series is about to recieve a reboot - and not before time!!
