Rainbow Six Siege Now Auto-Banning Players for “Offensive” Language or Behavior

Ubisoft has implemented an extremely strict policy regarding hate speech posted online within Tom Clancy’s Rainbox Six Siege.

The new policy will throw automated, temporary bans with further penalties for repeated offenses (including being permabanned for a third strike) to players that say racist or other offensively deemed language, which includes threats and harassment.

The game’s Code of Conduct was updated (via PC Gamer) with new terms, including:

In the idea to make the Game a welcoming community space for challenges, Ubisoft has decided to launch an automated temporary banning system in respect to Offensive Language or Behavior, Threats and Harassment.

This system will automatically temporary ban players from the Game when they use abusive words in the in-Game chat.

These temporary bans will be implemented as follows:

  • First offense: 30 minutes temporary ban
  • Second offense: 2 hours temporary ban
  • Third Offense: 2 hours temporary ban
  • After three offenses: an investigation will be conducted and may lead to a permanent ban (maximum penalty)

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has been available for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One since 2015.
