They make me sick! I will fight this in any way I can. He showed us so much potential, and its gone. WTF?
Someone get a petition going against the bull****!!

Guys, not get too upset about this. Realize what we were going to get. An abomination of rainbow six. Not what we remember from the good ol days. I'd rather wait 4-5 years and have them scrap this crap, start over, and make a REAL tactical rainbow six shooter. Eidos successfully pulled this of with Deus Ex: Human Revolution ( original Deus Ex rated #1 game of all time by PC Gamer) after they had a lackluster Deus Ex: Inviable War. So rainbow six could make a come back, I truly hope. Though unlikely, it could still happen. But after seeing the preview 3 months ago, and the interview w/ D. Sears I'm convinced that was never going to happen with those goof balls leading the way. Don't let the door hit you on the way out... David.
I will add my voice to everyone elses. UBI you better not deviate form teh direction that they were taking this. After all the gameinformer stuff, I was seriously excited about this game.
Don't screw us fans over UBIsoft
When Game Informer reported the leadership change at the upper echelons of the Rainbow 6 Patriots development team, many commentators wondered why Ubisoft would move so aggressively away from such a promising concept for a first-person shooter. Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat says that in spite of the restructuring, the vision that creative director David Sears shared with us on our cover story visit is still largely intact.
We spoke with Mallat, who said Sears' departure from the project was a mutual decision between himself and Ubisoft Montreal, and that it isn't affecting the company's commitment to the game.
"We're definitely going on with Rainbow, too, evolving the vision that came from David's initial input," he told us in an interview today.
Though Sears and the other staffers mentioned in the original report are no longer on Team Rainbow, both Mallat and Sears confirmed that he is still employed by Ubisoft Montreal.
"To paraphrase Mark Twain, I'm not dead, and Rainbow is still very much alive," Sears said. "I've watched the forum comments, and one of the things that's really important for everyone to understand is senior management and the editorial group challenged me to create something plausible, relevant, and that touches on the current fears of the U.S. citizens to the point that I was almost surprised myself we were taking these creative risks. They are still behind it. I spent time working on it because I love it, but there comes a point where you give the vision to everybody and they embrace it and start telling me what the vision is now."
As for Sears' new role, Mallat says Ubisoft Montreal has moved him onto "a major project for a major brand."
"Another opportunity arose that was a really good fit, and I am more than delighted to contribute to that," Sears said.
Mallat also confirmed that Rainbow 6 Patriots is still slated for a 2013 return.
Relaaaaax!, rainbow wil be fine..it always was and always wil..Probably a gameplay thing, story wil stay the same..ubisoft has more people working who wil deliver..in the end it's how ubi want's it to be, with or without david..

I understand that many of you are upset over this news and hopefully when more information is provided you'll feel better about it. Let's please keep this conversation productive, constructive, and civil or I'll have to lock the thread. Thanks.
On the positive sear's was too picky in my opinion, you can see this in 1 of the vid's where he starts on brent about some animation part that would have made no real diff to the game and only put xtra man hours onto finishing the game. The department heads know what there doing Brent and Co RB6 is in good hands )
