Rainbow Six Mobile is an upcoming First Person Shooter title for mobile devices with gameplay mechanics borrowed from Rainbow Six Siege.
Ubisoft has opened up registrations for Android and iOS users but there is no word on when the beta will kick off.
The game does not have a release date just yet but leakers in the community have hinted at a 2022 release.

Ubisoft announced that it is working on a new mobile title based on Rainbow Six (R6) Siege. The new title is being called “Rainbow Six Mobile” and it is being marketed as a “competitive, tactical, and immersive FPS (First Person Shooter) experience” similar to Siege. The title shares a lot of mechanics that are similar to Rainbow Six Siege but with touch control optimization.

Rainbow Six Mobile Overview

The developer team behind Rainbow Six Mobile's production is based in Montreal, which is also where Siege was developed. Ubisoft revealed in its official announcement that while R6 Mobile may share the same office with colleagues from the Siege team, it is a completely separate team consisting of veterans from both the AAA console and mobile game worlds.

Rainbow Six Mobile is a competitive and tactical FPS game with two teams of 5 – Attackers and Defenders. While the core gameplay, characters, and maps may share similarities with Siege, the game has been created with mobile usability in mind. The game has an entire new control system tailored for mobile players. Siege’s user interface has also been overhauled to make it simpler for mobile players.

Ubisoft has made it clear that while the game does have similarities with Siege, it does not seek to displace the current console or PC version of the game. The game has been in development for three years and it will soon be available as part of limited test runs. There is no official word on a release date just yet but registrations are open for players to sign-up and get access to the game during its beta.
