May 14, 2020 Rainbow Six Siege has achieved a total of 60 million players.
Ubisoft’s take on FPS games won’t stop growing. The Rainbow Six Siege player count has hit yet another massive milestone this year, as Ubisoft has confirmed in its latest financial report that the game now has over 60 million registered players across platforms. The announcement comes after the game hit multiple new peak concurrent player count records on Steam earlier this year.
In addition to the 60 million Siege players noted in the latest financial report, Ubisoft also has a few other stats to brag about. The quarter ending March 31 saw a 26% rise in player recurring investment – that’s ‘spending on microtransactions and DLC’, in layman’s terms – and a total of one billion session days during the fiscal year, which Ubisoft says is a “sharp increase”.
Rainbow Six Siege hit a new peak player count record on Steam back in February – the biggest since 2018 – and then did it again in March, as Steam player numbers overall hit new records as people began to shelter in place for the COVID-19 pandemic. The player count record reported by SteamDB now stands at 199,307 – one of the biggest in Steam history.
Ubisoft’s previous announcements included 20 million in August 2017, 25 million in February 2018, 30 million in April 2018, on through to 35 million at E3 and 40 million in October 2018. Then 50 million in September 2019, and 55 million in February 2020.
