Rainbow Six Siege next-gen release, cross-gen multiplayer confirmed


Rainbow Six Siege will be arriving in time for next-gen release on PS5 and Xbox Series X, confirms Ubisoft.

Why I can’t give you a [set release] date is because those dates are, in the end, on the people doing the next-gen consoles. What I can tell you is that we are going to be on [the consoles] from launch. When they will release the consoles; but it’s up to them to agree that. For Siege, our target is to be available right at launch.
Leroy Athanassof, Game Director

Athanassof confirms that Siege will support cross-generation multiplayer for Xbox One and Xbox Series X, and PS4 and PS5.

That means if you play on the next PlayStation, you will be able to matchmake with the previous PlayStation.
Ubisoft explains that cross-play between console and PC has been ruled out due to a considerable amount of challenges.

Rainbow Six Siege is available on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
