I was reading about the new game in game informer magazine and i just can't wait for Rainbow 6. It sounds amazing with the new AI and gunplay.

I've never played any games in the series, and doubt I will now because just too many great games and not enough time and money to play them all.

but how many games allow you to repel/ run down the side of a building while shooting at enemies in multiplayer?

OMG - I have enough FPS's as it is. Unless its called MegaFieldWarfare - All is Fair in Love and War edition - Im not buying it.

MW3 is getting traded in for this, possibly BF3 too. R6 games are damn near perfection with an actual single player campaign that is challenging.

Counting down the days. B-)

And I hate trading i games, you get so little credit for them.
Depends. Most places here are offering $40 minimum for BF3 or MW3. Plus a few are offering 50% extra credit on future pre-orders. $60 towards a new game? Not a bad deal.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots has been formally removed from GameStop's database, and is no longer available for pre-order. Some retailers automatically deactivate database entries after a lengthy period of time, which wouldn't mean much in this instance. GameStop, according to a source with intimate knowledge of the retailer, "actively flipped a switch" to eliminate Rainbow 6 Patriots from its system.

GameStop tends not to remove big-name games from major publishers without an official confirmation that a title is dead, a source said. Moreover, it's exceedingly rare for GameStop to delist a game that appeared on the cover of its Game Informer magazine.

Amazon, Game, and other retailers, meanwhile, retain a listing for Rainbow 6. While the removal from GameStop isn't indicative of a cancellation or delay, it brings up the question once more: What is going on with this game?

Rainbow 6: Patriots was announced in 2011, but Ubisoft has spoken about the tactical shooter very little since then. Ubisoft told IGN last year that it's still in active development, and recent signs point to a next generation Rainbow 6 on new hardware.

Ubisoft's response to IGN concerning this delisting was, "We have nothing further to share about Rainbow 6: Patriots at this time."

Perhaps we'll learn more about the state of Rainbow 6: Patriots at this year's E3. You can catch Ubisoft's press conference coverage on IGN Monday, June 10 at 3pm Pacific.

Rainbow 6: Patriots ‘Had To Be Remade’ “If it doesn’t work, we’re not going to bring it to you.”

Psssst hey EA/DICE...

Ubisoft has broken its silence regarding Rainbow 6: Patriots. Speaking to IGN, North American president Laurent Detoc explained why Patriots suddenly went dark, plus why he feels that a switch to next-gen consoles has been good for the project.

Game cancelled.

Ubisoft isn't saying much about its single-player campaign -- quite the opposite of its approach to Rainbow Six Patriots, a now-dead (http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/12/13/rainbow-6-patriots-had-to-be-remade) shooter with polar-opposite philosophies.
