Fans of the first-person tactical shooting series Rainbow Six have been wondering what happened with Ubisoft’s latest announcement, Patriots, considering it dropped off the map several months ago. This past week, the company broke its silence, stating that the game was still around, but going through some major changes.

First announced two years ago during the Spike Video Game Awards, Patriots has seen quite a bit of effort into it. However, in a conversation with IGN, Ubisoft North American president Luarent Detoc explained it wasn’t necessarily the right direction.

“We had a core team,” said Detoc. “They had a good vision. They got started, and then the game wasn’t working. So (they had) to start again.”

The game now has a new direction, and is being built from the ground up with new consoles in mind, including the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There could be several changes coming as the game reaches fruition, including tweaks to its counter-terrorism plot and even the name.

There’s no word yet on a new release date.
