Three weeks back all the talk was about the Rainbow Six Siege visual changes which Ubisoft was making to make the game available in China.
The community was extremely upset about this and the game was review bombed on Steam. After a lot of posts from players mainly criticizing Ubisoft for these cosmetic changes, Ubisoft has finally announced that they will be reverting all the visual changes that they made to the global version of the game. As to why they are reverting back to the original design, here’s what they had to say in a dev blog:
“We have been following the conversation with our community closely over the past couple of weeks, alongside regular discussions with our internal Ubisoft team, and we want to ensure that the experience for all our players, especially those that have been with us from the beginning, remains as true to the original artistic intent as possible.”
While many thought that Ubi would be unfazed by the community outcry, it seems that they were actually paying attention to the community and have listened to them. Many are hoping that with this Ubi will also start paying attention to other parts of the game too that the community has been talking about, like the OP characters that need nerfs and the characters that need a Buff to be relevant. Some might even say that they waited until now to undo it so that they could boost sales for the Season Pass since they will revert the changes with the Operation Wild Bastion update.
