Ubisoft announces the next instalment in its Rainbow 6 series, due in 2013...

The seventh instalment in Ubisoft's long-running Rainbow 6 series is now officially on the way – Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Patriots has been announced for a 2013 release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

Counter-terrorism takes centre-stage once again as Team Rainbow faces a group that calls itself the True Patriots. Unhappy with greedy corporate America and its corrupt politicians, the True Patriots are both trained and organised – their vow is to take down the establishment with terrorist actions.

According to Ubisoft's press release, players won't only be enjoying the standard Rainbow 6 gameplay of tactical insertions and one-shot kills - “tough ethical decisions” have also been forecast as players attempt to take down the True Patriots.

As with most of the Rainbow 6 games, both adversarial and co-op multiplayer are a major point of focus. Details are scant at the moment but team communication and execution will form the gameplay pillars, as has similarly been the case with Rainbow 6 games in the past.

This is the first Rainbow 6 game since Ubisoft released a brace of Rainbow 6: Vegas titles earlier this generation. They were released within a year-and-a-half of each other and played out more like two instalments from the same development cycle rather than two entirely new games.

Ubisoft's Montreal studio, which handled the Rainbow 6 Vegas titles, will be developing this latest instalment alongside the publisher's new Toronto studio and the original team behind the Rainbow Six series at Ubisoft Red Storm (Red Storm was founded by Tom Clancy in 1996 before being bought-out by Ubisoft in 2000).

“Terrorism has evolved, and so has Rainbow 6. In Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots, all the team play, tactics, and realism that fans of the series love have been coupled with an exciting new narrative direction,” said David Sears, Creative Director at Ubisoft. “This adds an unprecedented level of humanity that will make Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots an extremely tense and immersive experience.”
