Ubisoft has a change of heart regarding Rainbow Six tweaks

Cosmetic changes to be rolled back, although some tweaks my linger a while longer.

A few days ago we reported on the outcry from fans in response to Ubisoft's plans to remove some of the more graphical environmental detail in Rainbow Six: Siege as the company looked to unify the game across all territories.

Fans were disgruntled at the prospect of Ubisoft's self-censorship and review bombed the game, prompting the publisher to have another think about their plans. It would seem that upon reflection, there has been a change of heart.

In a followup post on the game's official blog the company outlined its intention to roll back their plans, although they did warn players that having to unpick the changes already made may take a bit of time:

We will begin reverting these changes alongside the launch of Wind Bastion so no player is impacted; we ask you to be patient if some elements remain. We will carefully remove them all to the best of our ability considering the short timeframe and with the lowest impact on the season's launch date and our build stability.

The plan is to keep disruption to a minimum, and with the next update coming to the game - Operation Wind Bastion set to launch fully early next month, there isn't long for the changes to be made. Ubisoft also suggested that players could keep up to date on Twitter.
