File this under news we could have already told you, as Ubisoft confirms that Rainbow Six Siege won’t be coming to the Nintendo Switch. UK-based website Metro asked Ubisoft’s Alexandre Remy about the possibility of seeing the game come to the console, which Remy responded with the most obvious answer, that it isn’t possible.
Asked about bringing the game to Switch by Metro GameCentral, Rainbow Six Siege brand director Alexandre Remy, said: ‘‘[It’s] not possible with the technical constraint and especially the frame rate of the game; 60 frames per second plus destruction is a bit CPU heavy and Switch is not yet the Nintendo console where it’ll be.
‘But overall it’s true Rainbow Six is very much a game where we just want to expand the player base, because the more player’s we do have the better the whole game and services. So if at one point that is a possibility that we have new platforms or new hardware, we’ll likely get there.
So while you won’t be seeing the game come to the Switch anytime soon, that’s not to say that when the day comes that they decide to make a sequel or expand the series again, they won’t have the Switch in mind.
