I just had to give this game a try, since I had been waiting for it for a long time. Now I can safely say that the whole series is dead, I am afraid that Ghost Recon will follow.

UBI, if you want to create a shooter like Counter-Strike or even Call of Duty, you had better do a much better job. There's competition out there, this garb..game just doesn't cut it.

Please don't make another game for us PC players, since you don't think we are worth having a good game. RavenShield was a work of art compared to Lockdown.

I was going to list some of the problems I have with this game, but can't really be bothered.

I should really cancel my pre-order for GS3, but guess I'm a sucker and still hope for the best...

So sad.

I,am waiting for GS3 to. But if GS3 is the same as Lockdown i will never buy any fps from ubi anymore.

Better call it GR3 or GRAW. Never seen anyone call Ghost Recon for GS http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
Just to let you know if you venture on to the GRAW forums.

Hopefully the ghost of Rainbow Six will rise again in Rainbow Six 5, we'll see next week...

The overwhelming evidence seems to suggest that it will be an announcement relating to a CONSOLE game.

If so, it won't have much relevance or bearing for us PC'ers looking for a true PC FPS.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Some others are "CUP IS HALF EMPTY" types, like me.

And maybe UBISOFT is a "CUP IS TWO TIMES BIGGER THAN NEEDED" type of company. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Yeah.... whatever.
R6 is a closed chapter for me.
This is just too ridiculous

Heh, GR3 not GS3, as you pointed out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

So there's going to be Rainbow Six 5? I won't be having that one if it's co-developed with the console version. Simplifying the gameplay, making graphics better, that's not the way to go with a tactical shooter.

I may be wrong here and I truly hope I am...

But I think that RavenShield is the last Rainbow Six game to be designed for the PC.

I have a sinking feeling that anything we see from here on out will simply be a Console Port, ala' Lockdown.

I would rather think of Lockdown as a mere speed bump to the progress of our real r6 game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
