When will Rainbow Six Mobile be released?

Ubisoft’s critically acclaimed Rainbow Six Mobile could be the next big thing in the mobile tactical shooter game market. The developers have dropped a major teaser on when will Rainbow Six Mobile be released after having tested the game multiple times in its Beta stages in the past few months.

Following in the footsteps of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, the latter was first released on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in December 2015. Exactly a year later the game debuted on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Siege is still praised for its tactical multiplayer mechanics, different gameplay modes such as Secure and Bomb, Objective, hostage rescue, and constantly updating content.

Launching Rainbow Six Mobile will be Tencent’s third major project on mobile shooter games apart from PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds, and Respawn and Tencent’s Apex Legends Mobile. R6M is being developed by WeGame, Tencent’s flagship game portal.
