Today, Ubisoft shared the news that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has passed 30 million players across all platforms, in no small part due to the recent Operation: Chimera and Outbreak events. This is up from 27 million last month according to GameInformer, a massive increase in players, even if that number probably includes free trials.
Brand Director of Rainbow Six Siege, Alexandre Remy, had this to say:
“On behalf of the entire team, we wanted to thank every member of our diverse, global community for their support of our game. Our players are the most valuable element to our game. Over the last three years, we have endeavored to create a solid community built on transparency as we grow and evolve the ever-expanding world of Rainbow Six Siege. We are so tremendously honored to achieve this milestone, and we will continue to do everything we can to earn each and every new person that decides to play.”
Other major milestones for the game include 321,000 peak concurrent viewers during the 2018 Six Invitational and more than 6.2 million hours of gameplay watched across all channels.
Ubisoft is firing on all cylinders right now, with For Honor, Ghost Recon Wildlands and Rainbow Six Siege all doing extremely well. It’ll be interesting to see just what they have in store later this year.
