The standard edition of Rainbow Six Siege will be a digital-only title on PC in the UK.
This only applies to the standard edition of the game, according to what ShopTo learned from Ubisoft.
The collector’s edition will not be affected, as per a statement from a Ubisoft spokesperson speaking with VG247.
“In the UK, Rainbow Six Siege PC standard version will be available solely through digital download,” reads the statement. “However, we can confirm that a physical Collector’s Edition will be available at usual UK retailers.
“Across all the other EMEA territories (Europe, Middle East and Asia), all PC editions will be available for purchase in both physical and digital formats.”
Very recently, Warner Bros. announced that Batman: Arkham Knight will also release digitally on PC.
