Rainbow Six Siege censorship nixed after backlash
Rainbow Six Siege is no longer being censored, according to Ubisoft and via Segment Next. The original plan for censoring the game came in preparation for its release in certain Asian markets because of depictions of sex, violence, and gambling in the game. Those potential changes kicked the hornet’s nest though.
Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical FPS and has been out for almost three years. Many of the entries in the Rainbow Six series have followed suit in a similar fashion. The series, which has been inspired by Tom Clancy’s titular novel, has seen installments for 20 years now.
Rainbow Six Siege’s “aesthetic changes” are the main driving force behind the outcry, and Ubisoft and the Rainbow Six Twitter account have since backslid out of the original announcement, which was made earlier in November. You can view the tweeted-out response below.
We have decided to revert all aesthetic changes originally announced on Nov 2. We have heard the concerns raised after Nov 2nd, and have since then been working on solutions.

Granted, “working on solutions” is vague, but it’s the thought that counts, right? Ubisoft and the Rainbow Six Siege team will spearhead the changes. How they’ll change it, I’m not sure, but we here at DGR will keep an eye on it to see if anything major happens.
