Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege has seen unprecedented growth over recent years and now sits among the top first-person shooters on the market. Between its tense tactical gameplay and unique Operator roster, the game has amassed over 35 million players as of E3 2018.
Alongside this growth, new problems have arisen for Rainbow Six Siege. While its content is more established than ever, the game is rife with hackers, griefers, and exploits. Ubisoft's integration of the BattlEye third-party anti-cheat system has deterred cheaters, but the game still remains highly exploitable, especially on Windows PCs.
Ubisoft has announced plans to soon address these concerns, responding to a fan on Twitter. An announcement is currently slated for Friday, July 6, where the team plans to "address the current state of cheating" in-game.
Ubisoft has previously addressed (opens in new tab) issues with Rainbow Six Siege's growing toxicity among the community, outlining plans to further punish teamkills, unsporting communication, and other negative player behaviors. When hacks now allow players to teleport freely and plant bomb defusers from spawn, the increasingly disgruntled community should welcome a solution.
