Ubisoft has unveiled Operation Shifting Tides, its fourth and final major update headed to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege in 2019. The latest of tri-monthly expansions set sights on Kenya-India relations, receiving its first oceanic teaser ahead of a November 10 unveiling.
First outlined via its Year 4 roadmap back in February, Shifting Tides looks to pack two fresh Operators, hailing from Indian and Kenyan counterterrorism units. An accompanying Theme Park rework also lies on the table, continuing an initiative of revisiting existing maps with improved layouts and visual palettes. The first teaser has now debuted, via the official Rainbow Six Twitter account.

Reputable leaks already outline a promising duo on the horizon, fulfilling two highly-requested roles across the roster. An alleged Indian attacker will provide a new Thatcher alternative, equipped with anti-gadget launcher comparable to the handheld EMPs. The Operator will also reportedly debut the game's first bolt-action rifle, forging the second sniper role on offense.
Defenders will reportedly secure competition for Jager via an alternate anti-projectile deployable for the Kenyan Operator. Leaks detail a device that can capture and detonate projectiles, differentiating from the hard-counter offered by Jager.
Rainbow Six Siege Operation Shifting Tides is set for a November 10 unveiling alongside the Rainbow Six Pro League Finals in Tokoname, Japan.
