The tactical shooter makes a comeback

One of the premier tactical shooters on the PC and one of the most popular early shooters for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is expected to make a comeback. The Rainbow Six series is rumored to be on the verge of entering the shooter market again; this time, it's going back to its heavily tactical origins rather than its cover-based Rainbow Six: Vegas series.

The game will also feature larger set pieces and a more epic scope and story than previous entries in the series. The game is to be set in New York City as Team Rainbow tackles a terrorist threat in the Big Apple, making it the fourth game this year to be set in a New York under attack. (Crysis 2, The Third Birthday, and Modern Warfare 3 are the others.)

Ubisoft has not made an official announcement over the release of this title, but with E3 fast approaching, it would not come as a surprise if an announcement is made during its upcoming E3 press conference.
