Getting into Rainbow Six Siege can prove daunting when you consider its entry price, annual passes, and the plethora of other paid elements, which likely leaves interested players wondering about the possibility of it going free-to-play.
As it turns out, Game Director Leroy Athanassoff is quite interested in a free-to-play version of Rainbow Six Siege, however, it actually becoming reality doesn't just involve the removal of its price tag.
Rainbow Six Siege Free-to-play
"It’s a company decision. I think on the development team we want that at some point. We want the game to be accessible to everyone", Athanassoff told PC Gamer when asked about Rainbow Six Siege potentially going free-to-play in the future.
"You need certain features ready to be a good and successful free-to-play game", he continued.
Before considering a free-to-play version of Rainbow Six Siege, however, the development team aims to tackle smurfing, the practice through which experienced players move to a new account and play against their less experienced peers.
Whether it happens sooner or later, Rainbow Six Siege going free-to-play could prove to further bolster the first-person shooter's player base, as those previously put off by the entry price would be able to hop in and only worry about purchasing the remaining paid content.
