Ubisoft Cracks Down On Hate Speech In Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft Cracks Down On Hate Speech In Rainbow Six Siege”

Ubisoft has announced improvements to Rainbow Six Siege's chat toxicity ban system, specifically meant to combat "racial and homophobic slurs, or hate speech". But just like any game, there is a point where trash-talking becomes abuse and Ubisoft seems ready to draw that line, detailing plans to combat toxic gaming in Rainbow Six Siege. The bans will last anywhere from two days to life depending on the severity of the player's actions, and will be accompanied by a global message displayed in the game that the user has been "banned for toxicity". The Ubisoft Code of Conduct, which is supposed to govern the behavior of players in-game, will now be enforced with permanent bans to the game if players attack people with hate speech during Rainbow Six games.

Rainbow Six Siege's code of conduct states that "any language or content deemed illegal, dangerous, threatening, abusive, obscene, vulgar, defamatory, hateful, racist, sexist, ethically offensive or constituting harassment is forbidden". "Rainbow Six: Siege" is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A more in-depth report is also available, but requires players to log in to their online accounts and communicate directly with the Ubisoft support team. While this system of bans doesn't directly address the issue of the team killing, Robinson added in a separate comment that addressing this issue is not a "low priority" for the game's development team.

This decision is notable, as other AAA studios have begun to put similar systems into place in an effort to weed out toxic language and behavior in its games.

The new system is expected to arrive this coming week.

The new system appears to be a direct response to complaints like this. Players will be able to appeal bans, as they would normally. "You can play pretty much any other game".
