Rainbow Six Mobile: Arrives in September 2024

rainbow 6 r6 mobile releasedate

Rainbow Six (R6) Mobile will launch globally in September 2024, bringing Rainbow Six Siege to mobile. The planned staggered release in Canada and Mexico in 2023 was canceled. Despite the delay, the anticipation just builds up but, will it be worth it? Time will tell.

When is the Release of R6 Mobile?

While details about the specific launch date haven't been revealed yet, September is the confirmed target window for all players to join the siege. This marks a shift from the originally planned staggered release with earlier access for some regions. 

What Caused the Delay?

Ubisoft hasn't officially commented on the specific reasons behind the delay, but it's common for game developers to request additional time for various purposes.  This could involve further refinement of the mobile experience, fixing bugs, optimizing the game for different devices, or even adding more content like maps or Operators.

Why I am Excited for Rainbow Six Mobile

R6 Mobile free-to-play tactical shooter and the eighteenth installment in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Franchise. It brings the intense tactical action of Rainbow Six Siege to your fingertips. This mobile adaptation focuses on the core gameplay that fans know and love strategic 5v5 matches, destructible environments, and a diverse roster of Operators with unique gadgets and abilities.

Fans are hyped for the mobile version because it offers shorter matches and game sessions. It lets players customize the game’s controls in the HUD to fit their play style and level of comfort to play on the go. 

Rainbow Six Mobile Beta Testing

The closed beta tests were not made available globally. Ubisoft chose to test the game with a limited audience in specific regions to gather feedback and identify areas for improvement before a wider release. There were two reported phases for the closed beta tests.

This initial phase likely occurred sometime before June 2023. Details about this phase are scarce.
