Rainbow Six ditches Vegas

"We will never go back to Vegas".

Ubisoft's Rainbow Six series will be finished with Vegas as a location once the team completes work on Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2.

"We will never go back to Vegas - at least, not in the foreseeable future," designer Philippe Therien told Eurogamer at a recent preview event.

"We really feel that the story of Vegas is done. We've explored as much of Vegas as we wanted. For now, we're pretty much covered with Vegas."

Therien also admitted that he's not sure whether the game will continue to focus on a single place.

"The concept of being around one location was really good for Vegas, it really works," he said. "Whether we'll do that again, I don't know right now."

The new Vegas - due out on PC, PS3 and 360 on 21st March - introduces things like sprinting, bullet penetration and a new reward system to a formula that we already liked very much.

You can read much more about it - single-player and multiplayer - in today's extensive Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 multiformat preview.
