Main Article: Rainbow Six Vegas 2

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 was released on March 18, 2008. Whilst the game was well received (it currently has an 81 average on Metacritic) the sequel has been criticised for its stark similarities to the first game.

The game was expanded with options to control your squadmates, adding options to have them throw grenades or behave different in certain surroundings. The online multiplayer was also upgraded, with a lot of items from the first game, and new game modes.
