Rainbow Six Siege surpasses 35 million players

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege has seen continual growth in recent years, recovering from a lackluster launch to become one of today's top first-person shooters. Between its unique tactical mechanics and regular free content drops, the game sees millions of new players every month.

Taking to the stage at Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference, Rainbow Six community developer, Justin Kruger, announced the title has accumulated over 35 million players. Just two months ago the publisher discussed its 30 million player community, meaning over five million have potentially joined during this period.

This follows the recent release of Rainbow Six Siege's Operation Para Bellum expansion, which delivered a variety of new multiplayer-focused content. The update brought two new playable Operators, two new maps, and various other changes. For a deeper look at what's new, check out our full breakdown of the update's contents.
