Rainbow Six 3 Exclusive in 2003
July 17, 2003

Ubi Soft Entertainment announced that the anticipated console version of Rainbow Six 3 will be exclusive to Xbox in 2003. This is the first installment of the critically acclaimed Rainbow Six series to be released on a console in this generation of systems. The game is scheduled to launch for Xbox in time for the Holiday season of 2003.

Xbox has been the main development platform for the console version of Rainbow Six 3 and thus the game has been tailored to take advantage of the system’s strengths. Rainbow Six 3 will feature dynamic lighting effects and full Dolby 5.1 surround sound support, as well as online multiplayer and downloadable content over Xbox Live. Most intriguing is the promise of voice recognition through the Xbox Live headset. This feature will allow players to actually call out the commands to their CPU teammates.

If the temporary exclusive deal with Microsoft and the promise of high special effects and online support seems familiar, it was the same strategy Ubi Soft used for Splinter Cell last year. 

“We are excited about our new partnership with Microsoft," says Yves Guillemot, President and CEO of Ubi Soft Entertainment. "The same kind of exclusive agreement was a tremendous success for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, which ended up being the top-selling Xbox game in 2002. With the Xbox's proven gaming potential and the recent addition of the Xbox Live service, we expect even greater things for Rainbow Six 3!"

"We're pleased that Ubi Soft has chosen Xbox as the lead development platform for Rainbow Six 3," said Michel Cassius, Senior Director, Xbox Platform and Marketing. "Using graphics technology that makes the most of what Xbox has to offer, plus Xbox Live support, means Rainbow Six 3 will be an amazing gaming experience. After the success of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, it's great to welcome another fantastic Tom Clancy title to the growing Xbox portfolio of exclusive triple-A titles."
