Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege is one of the best shooters in recent years, and it’s enjoying success. The publisher has announced that the team-based shooter recently passed 20 million registers players. In a blog post, Ubisoft added that 2.3 million log in every day.
“Our community is growing and so is our ambition to make Siege a shooter that is here to stay,” product director Nicolas Lefebvre said in a statement. “The next few weeks are very exciting as it marks the culmination of Operation Health and the release of our next season set in Hong Kong.”
