This weekend saw Ubisoft celebrating their 20 million registered player milestone for the tactical squad-based FPS, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. The announcement came via their blog sighting the growing success, which has been helped along by the constant support and release of DLC since it’s release in 2015.
Ubisoft stated that due to this success the game will receive support and regular updates for some time to come. Product director at Ubisoft, Nicolas Lefebvre, stated that ‘Our community is growing and so is our ambition to make Siege a shooter that is here to stay’. This claim is further bolstered by its current 2.3 million daily active users logging in and playing the game.
The Operation Health initiative is a long-term support project with fixes and updates that will help to “improve the overall experience” of the game. Their aim is to balance the game and resolve issues cropping up over time since its release. Two new operators are coming our way in the form of a Hong Kong Special Duties Unit (SDU) and another from Poland’s Grupa Reagowania Operacyjno-Manewrowego (GROM). Players will also get a new weapons and new map set in Hong Kong.
Operation Health will come to consoles via a 15GB patch with a view of more things to come in the future. Hong Kong will be released as part of Season Three in August 2017 and South Korea in November 2017 as part of Season Four.
Lock and load operatives, Rainbow Six Siege is here to stay.
