Rainbow Six Siege: Ubisoft censures its game to please China, controversy swells

Released three years ago in the West, Rainbow Six Siege is about to land in Asia, a continent it is better to seduce if Ubisoft wants to multiply sales of its game, which remains one of the greatest successes of his catalog in terms of longevity and e-sport culture. But here, for the game to be licensed for sale there, and especially in China, Ubisoft must abide by certain rules, with respect to graphic violence and sexual annotations. In an article posted on the official blog of Ubisoft, it is indicated that many visual elements of the game will be modified, "without them having any impact on the gameplay", reassures the French publisher.

On screen, this means that skulls, slot machines, sex symbols and violent icons will be removed from the game. Nothing surprising if you have to comply with the regulation of the country, always very strict , but publishers must bend to hope to sell their games. However, Ubisoft explains that these changes will not only be reserved for Asia, but will also impact all versions in the world. The reason is simple: do not double the workload of developers by offering only one version of the game in the world. As much to say that these remarks were very badly received by the community which insists already on the forums such as Reddit and the social networks. It remains to be seen whether Ubisoft will react as a result of the dissatisfaction of the fans, or will definitively bow to the desideratas of China. Case to follow as they say.
