Ubisoft has just announced Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Mobile, a new free-to-play game that will bring the core gameplay of Rainbow Six Siege to your mobile devices.

Over the years, mobile gaming saw a massive surge in popularity, with the launch of big titles like PUBG, Fortnite, and Call of Duty. Ubisoft has seen this market and decided to finally bring its massively popular FPS shooter- Rainbow Six Siege – to Android and iOS devices.

Ubisoft did not release many details about this game yet, but we know that this tactical first-person shooter mobile game will bring the fundamentals from Siege. So the game will feature 5v5 PVP matches in the core game mode: Attack vs. Defense. The destructible environments and a variety of unique gadgets, which makes Siege special, will also be coming to the mobile release.

Ubisoft has also confirmed more will be joining the roster soon.
