Rainbow Six Siege Boasts Some Impressive Numbers, Get an Overview of Year 2
Late last year, Ubisoft revealed in its financial report that Rainbow Six Siege had ten million registered players, and that the game had contributed significantly to the company’s positive performance. That number has increased since, and according to Ubisoft’s Latin America Director Bertrand Chaverot, the game now has over thirteen million registered players and is doing quite well outside the US, too.
As reported by a Brazilian publication (translation via NeoGAF), Chaverot drew an interesting comparison between Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Rainbow Six Siege in the Brazilian market, noting that despite the former being cheaper, Ubisoft’s title is on par in the country, where it has earned praised from eSports players. Out of the 1.3 million who play the game daily, Brazil accounts for 176,000. Overall, almost 4 million people play weekly worldwide.
In the video above, which Ubisoft just released, the developer reveals that Rainbow Six Siege exceeded expectations and continues to grow stronger every day. We’re also offered an overview of Year 2 so check it out.
Over on Twitter, the game’s official account shared an infographic that recaps year one statistics. You can have a look at that below.
