Ubisoft Has "No Plan" To Make Rainbow Six Siege Free-To-Play

There's been speculation for sometime that Rainbow Six Siege might go free-to-play. As Ubisoft are fond of hosting free weekends for their hit shooter, some wondered whether after six years, Siege would finally make the transition, in similar fashion to Team Fortress 2 or Rocket League.

Ubisoft Has "No Plan" To Make Rainbow Six Siege Free-To-Play

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like a change they'll be implementing anytime soon/ In response, Chiron confirmed:

We are continuing to look at ways to engage new players and retain our loyal community, however there is currently no plan to make Rainbow Six Siege a free-to-play game.

It follows similar comments last year from director Leroy Athanassoff, who confirmed that while the development team want to do this "at some point". Ultimately though, Athanassoff confirmed it's a "company decision" and even now, one year later, Ubisoft has no plans of changing Siege.
