Will there be a Rainbow Six Siege 2?
Recently, at the Six Invitational 2023, Siege's developers shared their plans for Rainbow Six Siege. Business Strategy and Live Performance Director Mohammed Benhenneda said in Feb. 2023 that Ubisoft is "really preparing for the next 10 years of Siege".
Plain and simple, Rainbow Six Siege is far from being dead.
But, will there be a Rainbow Six Siege 2?
Unfortunately, we don't have an answer to this question. However, we don't expect Rainbow Six Siege 2 to be released any time soon.
While it's clear that Ubisoft intends to maintain Rainbow Six Siege alive, the developers' decision isn't to create a new game from scratch. The game's solution is to invest in the community, introducing new game modes like Arcade and seasonal time-limited events.
At the Six Invitational 2023, Ubisoft announced many new features that will hit Rainbow Six Siege during the upcoming months. These are just some of them:
- Y8S1 Operation Commanding Force: New operator Brava, reload rework, increased tactical focus coming to Rainbow Six Siege
- New operator: Brava
- MouseTrap anti-cheat for console
- Reputation penalty update
- Reload rework
- Zero gadget change
- New battle pass
- New playlist names
- Cross-boot between the main game and TS
Is Rainbow Six Siege dead?
With all of the new features planned to come in Rainbow Six Siege throughout the next months, the answer is clear: Rainbow Six Siege is not dead.
Just this week, Rainbow Six Siege released an Elite Bundle for Finka.
Meanwhile, the Rainbow Six Siege esports scene is now formed by nine different regions, with 24 teams qualifying for the BLAST Copenhagen Major -- a number that was only 16 last season.
Although it will be challenging, the future of Rainbow Six Siege looks bright. Will the game adapt to surpass the obstacles? Time will tell us!
