Everything we know about Rainbow Six Siege Operation Vector Glare — map, operator, release date

More information is coming.

Ubisoft has officially revealed the name of the next Rainbow Six Siege season: Operation Vector Glare. 

"Brute force only gets you so far. Victory is determined in the mind of a strategist," the tweet read. 

Not much else was revealed about the next season, but Ubisoft promised that more information is coming soon. 

When will Rainbow Six Siege Operation Vector Glare be announced? 

Rainbow Six Siege's Operation Vector Glare will have a full reveal on May 22, according to Ubisoft. This is when we will most likely find out more about the upcoming season, including its theme and content. 

When will Vector Glare be launched?

No known release date has been publicly revealed by Ubisoft just yet. This may come May 22. But the current season, Demon Veil, is going to end in late May or early June. This means players can expect Vector Glare to begin sometime soon after that. 

What content is coming in Operation Vector Glare?

Not much has been officially revealed just yet, but there are some things we know to be true of Operation Vector Glare. 

The official Year 7 roadmap revealed that Vector Glare will feature a new map. This is big news since players just got to play Emerald Plains. After three years of no new maps, it seems that developers are looking to increase the map pool. 

Operation Vector Glare will also include the highly anticipated Shooting Range. This could be delayed, but it's set to be in Vector Glare according to the roadmap. 

Other teasers have indicated that Team Rainbow, canonically, is splitting down the middle with two confirmed factions: Nighthaven and Wolfguard. This teaser also hinted at the possible return of an Operation Health-like update, although some fans feel it's more focused on the lore itself. 

Another exciting update is that Azami, one of the most impactful operators to be added to Siege, will finally be allowed in competitive play. This will shake up the competitive scene and also give pro players some new strategies to show off. 

Who is the next operator in Rainbow Six Siege? 

Operation Vector Glare will also have a new operator, as is the tradition in every season. Leaks have pointed to an operator named Sens, hailing from Belgium. 

Sens is said to have a gadget called the ROU Projector System. There are not many details about how this gadget works but leakers have said it will most likely project large smoke screens that block lines of sight. 

Further Rainbow Six Siege leaks have discovered Sens' weapon and loadout:

  • Primary: New POF-9 Assault Rifle, 417 DMR
  • Secondary: SDP-9 (Mozzie and Gridlocks pistol) and Gonne-6
  • Gadget: ROU Projector System

Not much about his gameplay is known just yet but he seems to be more focused on intel rather than firepower, according to Ubisoft's teaser. Nothing is known just yet and his final design is also a mystery.
