Ubisoft Will Not Release Rainbow Six Siege On The Nintendo Switch

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has previously said the French-based company is a big fan of Nintendo and its new system. It has already released Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle on the platform and will soon launch Starlink: Battle for Atlas – with the Switch version featuring Star Fox.

As rosy as the current relations between Ubisoft and Nintendo are, one recurring question is if the Switch will ever receive games like Assassin’s Creed and Rainbow Six. During a chat with Metro GameCentralRainbow Six Siege brand director Alexandre Remy was asked if the team-based first-person shooter would ever come to the Nintendo Switch. This was his reply:

[It’s] not possible with the technical constraint and especially the frame rate of the game; 60 frames per second plus destruction is a bit CPU heavy and Switch is not yet the Nintendo console where it’ll be.

This follows on from last week when the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game director Scott Phillips revealed he would port the game to the Switch if he had the programming skills to do so.

Earlier this month, Ubisoft revealed it had halted development on the Switch version of Steep, and before then announced it was releasing two hand-drawn titles from 2014 on the device.
