Along with other announcements, Ubisoft also stated over the past weekend that the company would begin to start permanently banning players who use “racial and homophobic slurs, or have speech” while playing online in Rainbow Six Siege. This is specifically an enforcement measure on the PC userbase, as Ubisoft leaves moderation duties on consoles to Microsoft and Sony respectively.
Ubisoft stated that the company will be tracking language that violates the game’s Code of Conduct, which has been available on the official Rainbow Six website for a while. Bans will be issued on a case-by-case basis. This is done through reporting systems, one of which is automated, and available in-game. A second, more involved reporting system is also available, which requires users to log into their account and communicate with Ubisoft’s support staff.
Bans can initially run from two to fifteen days, but can also be escalated to permanent pans depending on the severity of the issue.
