Ubisoft has unveiled its long-awaited roadmap for the upcoming year of updates headed to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. With the Six Invitational underway in Montreal, the studio has outlined four significant content drops planned for 2019.
The Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 roadmap proves an insight into upcoming content plans, outlining playable Operators and multiplayer maps scheduled for future updates. With Operation Burnt Horizon fast approaching, this provides a clearer glimpse of what lies beyond its Australian season.
As with prior Rainbow Six Siege updates, four themed seasons support Year 4, each packing two Operators and one multiplayer map. It also shakes up past trends, branching across seven unique counterterrorism units and starring a single new multiplayer map.
Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 kicks off with the previously-announced Operation Burnt Horizon; a journey down under with two Australian Operators and the Outback multiplayer map. Year 4 Season 2 hosts a duo of U.S. and Danish Operators, paired with the previously-leaked Kanal map rework. Its third update explores South America with Operators from Peru and Mexico, alongside a Kafe Dostoyevsky rework. And concluding 2019, a Theme Park rework hosts new personalities from Kenya and India.
- Year 4 Season 1: Two Australian Operators, Outback map.
- Year 4 Season 2: U.S. Operator, Denmark Operator, Kafe Dostoyevsky map rework.
- Year 4 Season 3: Peru Operator, Mexico Operator, Kanal map rework.
- Year 4 Season 4: Kenya Operator, India Operator, Theme Park rework.
The Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 roadmap looks promising, backed by Ubisoft's most diverse Operator lineup yet. And despite only one new multiplayer map for 2019, early glimpses of accompanying map reworks indicate hefty shifts in gameplay and visual tones.
As with past Rainbow Six Siege updates, all multiplayer maps will be available for free upon release. While owners of the $30 Year 4 Pass gain early access to Operators, a wider public rollout grants opportunities to buy or earn these additions.
