It might've launched well over two years ago, but Rainbow Six Siege has just hit 30 million players.
It's notable news given how Ubisoft has been talking up the positive performance of its back-catalog titles and 'player recurring investment' in recent months.
It's also a testament to the French developer-publisher's focus on creating franchises that "offer long-term visibility," with the company having managed to triple Siege's playerbase since November 2016, when it stood at 10 million players.
Indeed, the last time we checked in December 2017, the tactical shooter had just crossed the 25 million player mark, meaning it's added another 5 million players in roughly four months.
Of course, it's worth nothing that those 30 million players don't translate directly into sales, and it's possible that some players could've created multiple accounts, but it's a significant milestone nonetheless.
Thank you to our 30 million players. pic.twitter.com/ffCXkg7fLO— Rainbow Six Siege (@Rainbow6Game) April 12, 2018
