Ubisoft reverting aesthetic changes made to Rainbow Six Siege earlier this month

Ubisoft will revert changes it made to icons and other ascetics in Rainbow Six Siege to comply with content restrictions in Asian territories.

Earlier this month Ubisoft announced it would remove some of the aesthetic content in Rainbow Six Siege restricted in Asian territories. The changes were made across the board to make things easier on the development team.

The company announced today it will begin reverting the changes made alongside the launch of Wind Bastion. It said it make take some time due to the "short timeframe" to have the "lowest impact" possible on the season’s launch date.

"Our intentions are to keep any impact to a minimum, though such changes may lead to a season delay and/or some instability as our testing and debug times are shortened," reads the notice. "We will monitor our tests closely and keep you updated on any new development on the matter via our Rainbow Six Twitter."

Ubisoft said it made the decision after it it followed community discussions since the announcement was made. The matter was also discussed with the internal Ubisoft team.

Current players in Asian territories can "continue enjoying the same game as the other players," the post reads.

Rainbow Six Siege players can get a taste of Operation Wind Bastion on the Test Server later today.
