The closed beta of Rainbow Six Mobile launched today and so far, the development of the mobile version of Ubisoft’s tactical shooter seems to be going well. Unfortunately, there is no exact release date for the game yet.
Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical shooter that has been playable on various consoles and PC since 2015. Now that mobile gaming is on the rise, Ubisoft is working on iOS and Android versions of the game. In the following trailer, Ubisoft developers show how their new game is currently doing and confirms that Rainbow Six Siege Mobile is on the way, offering the multiplayer action the series is known for.

The gameplay should be characteristic of Rainbow Six Siege with its various operators, each with their own abilities. The Operators are the pawns that players use to wage a tactical game against each other, and the team with the best skill and tactical understanding wins the game.
Now that Rainbow Six Mobile is close to release, we’ll see another Ubisoft IP find its way onto mobile market. It’s safe to say that Rainbow Six Siege is an absolute must for smartphones, especially given the success of titles like Call of Duty: Mobile.
Rainbow Six Mobile will allow players to dive into familiar maps like Border and Bank, and also play in teams of five on their smartphones. The Bomb and Secure Area game modes are part of Rainbow Six Mobile.
Exact release date unknown
Beginning today, September 12, players from the US, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Singapore, India, and the Philippines can register to win a spot in the Rainbow Six Mobile Closed Beta. While there is confirmation that the game is coming, we don’t yet have a release date for Rainbow Six Mobile. However, since you can sign up for performance testing, we’d guess it’ll be out later this year. As for the development of the game itself, it’s being led by a new team at Ubisoft Montreal.

It is not clear if and when the Rainbow Six Mobile beta will be available in Europe. Ubisoft has already clarified that cross-play will be available in the final, playable version and that it will be possible to communicate with other players via voice chat. The developer hopes to repeat the success of Rainbow Six Siege, as the game for consoles and PC has a thriving esports scene and has been infused with new content for the past seven years.
