The Rainbow Channel started this petition to Ubisoft

Rainbow Six Siege is expanding to Asian markets and as a result getting censored by removing blood, sex and gambling references. If you don't agree with these purported changes, be sure to let everybody know by signing this petition. More information about this can be found below (Forbes article).

In its latest blog post, Ubisoft outlines graphical changes coming to Year Three, Season Four as part of a “single, global version” of the game. In it, changes everything from UI icons such as melee kill and friendly fire notifiers, to graffiti and other decoration of numerous maps were shown off. Slot machines, neon signs of dancing women, environmental blood and graffiti featuring skulls will all be changed or removed entirely.

It is claimed that these changes will prevent the game from requiring multiple versions for various countries’ regulations, allowing for updates to be developed for a single build. Ubisoft are also quick to reassure players that no changes will be made to the “Rainbow Six Siege experience”, and that this will only be a cosmetic change.

Despite popular belief from outside the country, representations of skulls and skeletons aren’t outright banned in China. However, the laws surrounding the media are broad and vague, according to TechinAsia, as skulls could be interpreted as promoting “superstitions” to some.  The other changes are more clear-cut, though, with representations of gambling and anything promoting obscenity or violence being banned.

It is important to note that, despite these concerns, the full scope of these graphical changes is yet to be confirmed or finalised. While it is unlikely Ubisoft will be willing to completely reverse the decision, the scale of the changes – and what they are replaced by – may be part of a conversation that will dominate the Siege community for a very long time
