Ubisoft to Issue Bans for Using Hate Speech in Rainbow Six Siege

Rainbow Six Siege Details Bans for Toxic Players

In addition to the Rainbow 6 Siege Year 3 content, Ubisoft has announced changes to in-game purchases going forward.

Ubisoft has revealed that it's cracking down on hate speech in Rainbow Six: Siege, saying that they're implementing an upgraded system for banning players (via Kotaku).

Based on how egregious the offence is, bans will last 2, 7 or 15 days.

Language that's forbidden is already outlined in Ubisoft's Code of Conduct, stating that "any language or content deemed illegal, dangerous, threatening, abusive, obscene, vulgar, defamatory, hateful, racist, sexist, ethically offensive or constituting harassment" is unacceptable. She loves games with strong narratives, impossibly large cups of coffee, and The Walking Dead. Players will be able to appeal bans, as they would normally.

While a player is banned, they will not be able to access online features with their game. And if you do get a ban, Ubisoft won't beat around the bush - it'll tell you that the ban was due to "toxicity". The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are subject to Microsoft's and Sony's online code of conduct, and ban users at their own discretion. This will yield a message to tell the user why they have been banned, as well as notifying everyone globally similar to how bans for cheating are now conducted.

It is of interesting note that players that are banned will be globally broadcast across channels in the game, seemingly like parading the offender about for all to see, but this type of shaming could be a positive step in deterrance for all forms of toxicity.

It's not just Blizzard taking more aggressive steps to fight toxic behavior. "It will then apply an appropriate ban on a case-by-case basis". The first Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak co-op event, the new Operators and more are available!
