In Rainbow Six: Patriots, Team Rainbow was to face a group of armed revolutionaries known as the "True Patriots," who believe the US government is no longer fit to rule the nation. Sometime after it was announced in 2011, Patriots was cancelled and the development teams began work on Rainbow Six: Siege.
The first trailers for Patriots were released in 2011, but new info was scarce in the following years, after a portion of the development team was removed from the project. The game was to feature moral choices as well as new co-op and multiplayer modes.
After much speculation about the game being cancelled, Ubisoft stated at E3 2013 that Patriots would be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as the previous generation; however, at E3 2014, Ubisoft announced Rainbow Six: Siege - confirming that Rainbow 6: Patriots had been cancelled.
