Rainbow Six Siege's next Elite skin unmasks Thatcher

Ubisoft has broadcasted its full reveal for the next season of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, titled Operation Para Bellum. Hosted alongside the official Pro League Finals at Atlantic City, the showcase provided a deeper dive into upcoming Operators, maps, and other seasonal changes. Concluding with an unexpected surprise, we received a brief look the new Elite set for Thatcher.

We've seen a steady stream of premium Elite skin sets this year – most recently for Valkyrie with a retro-style war photographer theme. The new cosmetic set for Thatcher departs from the line of throwback designs, embracing a more modern uniform for the Operator. This also serves as his first face reveal, after exclusive wearing a gas mask in the past.

Details on the new Thatcher skin set are somewhat limited, with only its victory animation showcased during the show. We know a new uniform, weapon accessories and other standards of Elite sets will return, however, these are yet to make an appearance. The Thatcher Elite set is set to make its arrival with the release of Operation Para Bellum.

Like previous Elite sets, the bundle will likely cost 1,800 R6 Credits – Rainbow Six Siege's premium packs obtainable with real-world money. Year 3 Pass holders will retain their store-wide discount, reducing the price to 1,620 R6 Credits.
