It has nearly been two full years, since Rainbow Six Siege launched on December 1st, 2015. We want to thank the millions of players who have helped support the game this long. As we enter our third year, there will be a lot to celebrate. We will have more news to share on the exciting things to come in Year 3, but for now, we want to share a big thank you from the entire Rainbow Six Development team.
Year Two kicked off into high gear with the first Six Invitational, the biggest event in Rainbow Six Siege’s history. Operation Velvet Shell dropped you into Ibiza where Jackal and Mira introduced Rainbow to the G.E.O. We then deployed Operation Health with the Technical Test Server and 1-Step Matchmaking, which has prepared the development team for the long-term future of Rainbow Six. Most recently, Operation Blood Orchid reopened an abandoned Hong Kong theme park with S.D.U. operators Ying and Lesion, along with Poland’s Ela from G.R.O.M.
And we’re not done.
Two new Operators from the 707th Special Mission Battalion (707th SMB) are joining Team Rainbow. The attacker is stubborn and daring while the defender is methodical and tenacious. We’re also bringing you a new GROM Operative in the mix, known for their resilience and bravery.
For our new map, you’ll have to look up, waaay up to explore a pristine observation tower high above Seoul’s skyline. Make room for more fire power in your storage locker as we’ve got new weapons to satisfy your craving for more choices in dealing out devastation.
We’re ending the year on a high note but there’s a lot more to come. Check our blog regularly for more updates on what’s coming up and catch the action at the Pro League finals in Sao Paulo, happening November 18th and 19th on twitch.tv/rainbow6.
