Rainbow Six Siege Director Believes The Game Does Not Need A Sequel

He clarifies that sequels can backfire badly in the industry.

Story Highlights

  • Rainbow Six Siege director clarified that the title does not need a sequel, claiming it can “last forever.”
  • The dev believes a lot that can go wrong with a sequel. It is not as easy as switching engines in this case.
  • He wants to continue improving the game with constant and incremental updates. 

As reported by PC Gamer, the Rainbow Six Siege director Alexander Karpazis has confirmed that the game will not get a sequel. While speaking at a group interview held at the Siege Invitational 2024 in Brazil, the dev noted that the title has one of the best engines in the world in PvP shooters. He iterates that the team is incredible and is responsible for improving the engine monthly to deliver content faster.

The idea of switching engines to something that can be off-the-shelf ready simply doesn’t answer the needs of a really competitive and demanding game like Siege. I’m not going to name names, but you see games that did go through sequels and just completely drop the ball because they have to remake every single thing that they did in that first game.”

The dev clarifies that there are many complexities when creating a sequel for a title like Rainbow Six Siege. He thinks the hurdles along the way can cost a pretty penny alongside ramping frustrations, and the result is not always confirmed to give you the desired benefits. The director uses the analogy of homework, claiming that “you’ll never [make it] exactly the same way” as the original.

If you know what you have to begin with, and you build it up, that is where we see success. And that is where we know we can take Siege into the future.”
