Ubisoft Walks Back Rainbow Six Siege Aesthetic Changes

Due to facing a lot of backlash over the removal of Rainbow Six Siege‘s gambling & sexual imagery, Ubisoft announced on Tuesday that they “will be reverting all aesthetic changes.”

“We will begin reverting these changes alongside the launch of Wind Bastion so no player is impacted; we ask you to be patient if some elements remain,” their announcement read. “We will carefully remove them all to the best of our ability considering the short timeframe and with the lowest impact on the season’s launch date and our build stability.”

When it came to explaining this change of plans, Ubisoft said that they’ve listened to fan concerns about the aesthetic changes along with discussing what to do internally and came to the conclusion that they wanted “to ensure that the experience for all our players, especially those that have been with us from the beginning, remains as true to the original artistic intent as possible.”

Also, this recent decision will affect players in Asia as well, according to Ubisoft: “Current players in Asian territories can continue enjoying the same game as the other players.”
