The Rainbow Six Mobile port is real, as Ubisoft has officially unveiled the long-rumoured mobile version of Siege. Dropping the Siege subtitle, the game will come to be known simply as Rainbow Six Mobile but make no mistake - this is a mobile version of Siege with the same 5v5 round-based, Operater-headed, action.

If you are keen to know more, here is everything you need to know about Rainbow Six Mobile, including all of the trailers so far, gameplay details, and more.

Do we know when Rainbow Six Mobile will launch?

Currently, we do not know when Rainbow Six Mobile will launch fully. The last time players were able to access the game was in a closed beta during June 2023. For a six-week period, select users in a variety of different regions were able to play the game in a closed beta setting.

However, there's currently no word on when Rainbow Six Mobile will launch for everyone to play.

Despite the lack of a launch date, players can still pre-register on both Android and iOS devices, with the developer specifically looking for players who have played Call of Duty: Mobile, PUBG: Mobile, and Garena Free Fire in the past. Here's how you can pre-register for Rainbow Six Mobile.

All Rainbow Six Mobile trailers so far

Alongside the announcement of its existence, the developers also shared a trailer that reveals a game very much in the vein of Siege. Dubbed "pre-alpha footage", you would be forgiven for thinking this isn't from Siege itself. Set in the iconic Bank map, the graphics look fantastic for a mobile title and show off Operators, weapons, and even gadgets like the Recon Drone and Breach Charge.

Rainbow Six Mobile has been three years in the making, having been "built from the ground up", and while it shares many similarities with Siege, the developer has stressed that both development teams are entirely separate.

The similarities are there, though. It is a "competitive and tactical FPS", where two teams of five Operators - Attackers and Defenders - face off against each other. Many of the Operators will also be entirely familiar to those who have played Siege.

The initial launch of the game will also come with two familiar maps, Bank and Border.

That doesn't mean the game is a 1:1 clone; the developer stresses it is an independent team (though it's based in the same Montreal offices) and has designed the game with mobile devices in mind.

"We have put a lot of work under the hood to adapt the Siege experience for mobile devices," explains Ubisoft. "This includes an entirely new gameplay control system developed specifically for mobile and extensive optimization of the UI and in-game visual presentation."
