Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Announces 2022 Plans

Written by Contributor

February 21, 2022

Ubisoft announced an ambitious 2022 roadmap for Rainbow Six Siege, which recently surpassed the 80 million player milestone. Year 7 will bring new maps for the first time in three years, new permanent game modes including Team Deathmatch, continued efforts to encourage positive player behavior and many more updates.

During Year 6, Rainbow Six Siege introduced four new Operators, multiple thorough map reworks, numerous Operator balancing updates, Privacy Mode, UI and HUD improvements, and more. In Year 7, Ubisoft continues its long-term commitment to make Rainbow Six Siege an exciting, thoughtful, and fair game.

YEAR 7 ROADMAP

Demon Veil, the first season of Year 7, will bring the Japanese Defender Azami, a new country club map set in Ireland, and a Team Deathmatch permanent game mode. Season 2 will introduce a Belgian Operator and an exclusive Team Deathmatch map set in Greece. Season 3’s Operator arrives from Singapore, bringing a new competitive map. The last Operator of the year will be from Colombia.

 

PLAYER BEHAVIOR & REPUTATION SYSTEM

Throughout Year 7, the development team will take steps towards addressing specific player behavior to further anti-cheat efforts introduced in Year 6 like the Reputation System. Season 1 introduces improvements towards detecting griefing and player disconnects. Season 2 tackles players who misuse friendly fire through sanctions restricting reverse friendly fire as well as improving match cancellations.

In Season 3, players can access reporting options in Match Replay to address harassment in voice and video chat. Season 3 also introduces Reputation Scores for players, which will launch in Season 4 and start deploying rewards and sanctions to block repeat offenders. In Year 7, the development team strives to meet their continued goal of creating a secure and fair environment.

 

YEAR 7 PASS

From today until March 21, players can purchase the limited-time Year Pass or the Premium Year Pass. The Year Pass unlocks the four seasonal Battle Passes – which includes a 14-day early access to new Operators when they launch – while the Premium Year Pass unlocks four Battle Passes, the early access to new Operators, exclusive Exotic weapon skins, VIP credits, and more. Players who purchase the Premium Year Pass will also unlock 20 extra Tiers out of 100, receiving rewards quicker.

 

CONSOLE GAMEPLAY

Console players will receive several dedicated updates this year including aim control personalization, new controller input presets, and field of view settings.

 

ONBOARDING FEATURES

To better introduce new players to Rainbow Six Siege, Year 7 adds a Shooting Range: playable spaces to practice, train, and experiment without the pressure of a match. Another onboarding tool, Operator Tips, will let players get to know each Operator, their gadgets, and any tips that might be helpful for Attacker or Defender strategies.

 

BALANCING AND PLAYLIST UPDATES
The development team will continue reworking several Operators this year including Zero, Bandit, Dokkaebi, and Thatcher. Year 7 will add Team Deathmatch and Arcade permanently to the playlist, as well as revamping the Ranked experience to reflect a player’s progression better.

 

Rainbow Six Siege will be adding cross-play and cross-progression near the end of 2022.
