I think I’m turning Japanese. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is now more popular a year after its release than it was at launch. Games usually face the opposite issue where players lose interest after some time.
Rainbow Six Siege has been helped by the immense post launch support the game developers have thrown at it. Not just launching DLC every 3 months, but gameplay fixes, enhancements and lots more. Just check out the Season 3 Review to see the last major changes.Haven’t played Rainbow Six Siege?
