After the URL for “Rainbow 6 Patriotswas discovered, Ubisoft have now officially announced the development of the latest iteration of its popular Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 franchise.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with the support of Ubisoft Toronto and Red Storm, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots will focus on modern-day terrorism, and will present the singleplayer campaign through multiple characters’ perspectives. You will face a new enemy called the “True Patriots,” who are a highly-trained and well-organized revolutionary group that, imaginatively, are angered by greedy politicians, and think that they are corrupted by corporate special interests. As the True Patriots “will do whatever it takes to reclaim their country”, you will have to make tough ethical decisions in order to stop them.

David Sears, creative director at Ubisoft, said:

Terrorism has evolved, and so has Rainbow 6. In Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots, all the team play, tactics, and realism that fans of the series love have been coupled with an exciting new narrative direction. This adds an unprecedented level of humanity that will make Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 franchise has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide, but is sure to sell a few million more when the co-op supporting Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots releases in 2013 on PS3, 360 and PC.
