Throughout a Reddit AMA (noticed by way of Twitter), Rainbow Six Siege devs had been requested whether or not there can be any additional updates to Terrorist Mode. However it appears to be like as if it might have run its course.
“To be lifeless sincere, we’ve wished to take away [Terrorist Hunt] from the sport for some time now,” mentioned artistic director Leroy Athanassoff.
“It has lots of flaws, prices rather a lot to keep up, and doesn’t actually match anymore the course we’re taking with Siege.”
The PvE recreation mode duties gamers with looking various terrorists throughout the map. And whereas it clearly has some followers, it appears that evidently Terrorist Hunt is basically used as a approach of warming up earlier than leaping into on-line lobbies.
“It nonetheless has some curiosity and a few function for some folks,” defined Athanassoff.
“For instance, it’s good to get a really feel of the sport, the map or the weapon with out taking part in in opposition to different People. Additionally, this can be a good strategy to have a warmup to rapidly opt-in or opt-out, apply quick with out queuing or not with the ability to disconnect. We mentioned to ourselves that earlier than touching [Terrorist Hunt] we have to ship some options that reply the wants I discussed above.”
The reply, in line with Athanassoff, is a ‘warmup’ recreation mode.
“And we additionally have to have a strategy to play with bots in a secure atmosphere for those that need to study or play coop with their good friend with out taking part in in opposition to human,” he defined.
Crucially, it sounds as if Ubisoft might be placing some thought into the best way to enable gamers to play alongside pals in opposition to bots as an alternative of going through off in opposition to different gamers.
And whereas Terrorist Hunt could ultimately be eliminated, it sounds as if a brand new ‘warmup’ mode will take its place.
