Rainbow Six Siege is continuing to grow in popularity. The game just reached 70 million players across all platforms.
Siege broke 60 million players last July and has continued to grow consistently.
The French video game giant said it expects the franchise to continue strong in its sixth year since its launch in 2015.
Meanwhile, Rainbow Six: Quarantine is being developed by a new team at Ubisoft Montreal as a spinoff title for the tactical co-op shooter. Ubisoft hasn’t said when that game is coming, but the company expects it to help bring more players and awareness to Rainbow Six: Siege.
Rainbow Six: Siege has established a model for Ubisoft on how to use live services – in this case new operators and maps – to keep fans engaged with a franchise over years. It has used that model in games like The Division and Ghost Recon.
