Rainbow Six Siege cross-play still planned for consoles

But not PC.

Rainbow Six Siege cross-play and cross-progression between consoles is still on the cards, but it looks like PC won’t be folded in to the mix.

The news comes from a recent interview with PC Gamer, in which Game Director Jean-Baptiste Halle provided an update on the features.

“We’re actively working on cross-progression and cross-play,” Halle told the outlet. “Within the realm of consoles, I think it would be great if PlayStation and Xbox could play together.”

Siege already supports cross-play between Xbox One and Xbox Series S & X and PS4 and PS5, but the next level of the feature would place Xbox and PlayStation players with one another.

Halle addressed PC, simply stating, “I can see the pros, but I can also see the cons. So, for this one, it’s too early for us to communicate.”

There, it’s likely Ubisoft isn’t sure how to balance PC keyboard and mouse players against console players and controllers.

Rainbow Six Siege is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X, PS4 and PS5. Its upcoming Operation Crimson Heist content will launch later this year.
