Top 10 Stories of 2011: #10 Rainbow 6 Patriots revealed by domain registrations

Rainbow 6: Patriots

Several of this year’s Top 10 stories here on Fusible have to do with video gaming. 

So it’s no surprise that the story of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Patriots is number ten on the list. 

After noticing that Ubisoft registered eight different domain names on October 27, like assassinscreedrecollection.com and horsehaventhegame.com, also among the names were two that stood out because there was no information or news on them at the time — rainbow6patriots.com and rainbowsixpatriots.com.

I speculated that the next title in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six series would be Rainbow 6: Patriots.

Well, as it turned out, my speculation was soon confirmed by -BLITZ-, a member of the popular NeoGAF forum.  -BLITZ- had seen the logos, arts, covers and rendered game screens for Rainbow 6: Patriots.

The story got a lot of play online, with some of the biggest video gaming sites like Kotaku, Game InformerJoystiq, Gamespy.com, and more than a dozen more news sites, citing the story.

Days after my story went online, Ubisoft officially confirmed the title on November 3.

Here’s a look at the reveal trailer by Ubisoft.
