Rainbow Six Vegas 2 PC in April

Firm date from Ubisoft.

PC gamers will have to wait until 17th April to get their hands on Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 for the PC, Ubisoft has confirmed to Eurogamer.

The game had originally been down for 28th March, a week after the PS3 and 360 versions. We're not sure why the PC version has slipped, and Ubisoft wasn't able to explain at the time of writing.

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is of course the highly anticipated sequel that, much as Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 did for GRAW, iterates and extends a lot of the first game's good work.

When we took a look recently, we were impressed by things like "visual cover" (the concept that you can lurk safely behind destructible scenery providing no one sees you) and the ACES system, which keeps track of your accomplishments in various areas and rewards them, giving you a shotgun if you're good at close-quarters shooting, for example.

Multiplayer's a big deal too, with Ubisoft even revealing today that the Frag Dolls will attempt a world record 24-hour-straight play session just after the 360 version comes out.

Look out for our review of the console Vegas 2 early next week, and a separate PC review in April.
