Rainbow Six Siege is a first-person shooter video game that focuses on team cooperation and environmental strategy to secure the success of a mission. This represents the eleventh installment in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six series that was launched on December 1, 2015. The start was extremely slow for this production, with some harsh reviews and weak community of players. However, after 20 months the game turned into one of the most successful first-person shooters.
Rainbow Six Siege Attained the Milestone of 20 Million Registered Players
Ubisoft announced through a blog post the latest achievements for one of its recent shooters. Tom Clancy’s latest game has 2.3 million people each day playing. On top of that, the production has also marked the 20 million registered users milestone. These numbers are pretty impressive giving the sluggish start the title recorded.
The game managed to secure a loyal community by giving juicy incentives back to its people. There were numerous weekends that featured free access to the game. Additionally, new comers received free trials to get a little taste for the in-game strategies.
While there are no public details on uPlay, PS4, and Xbox One, there are some clear stats on Steam. The platform shows a concurrent number of online players of 28,743 at the time of the publication. Such a large activity places Rainbow Six Siege above Skyrim, Fallout 4, and Rocket Leagues.
Ubisoft Invested Lots of Efforts in this Production Despite Its Sluggish Start
The question remains how the company drew so much attention for a game that recorded slow activity in its launch days. The answer lies in consistent post-launch support. The company devised an addictive DLC plan that was reiterated throughout other competitive productions with success.
Therefore, Siege has now a total of 30 operators and 16 maps. On top of that, Ubisoft managed to introduce the title within the esport world. This move alone made the game extremely popular on Twitch.
