Rainbow Six Siege Outlines Season Plans for Year 3

The Outbreak mode will be free for all Rainbow Six Siege players when "Season 1" of Year Three launches.

Ubisoft released a new outline for their third year of Rainbow Six Siege support that includes four more seasons worth of Operators, a massive map overhaul, and other content.

As usual, two new Operatives and two new maps will be added to Rainbow Six Siege at some point in 2018, but there'll also be a new mode called Outbreak. Instead of a map, this expansion brings a new event called Breakout, but there will be two operators. Outbreak will last for four weeks and will give players the chance to earn exclusive cosmetics. Full details will be announced in February 2018 during the Six Invitational.

As for the rest of the content to expect throughout the game's third year, Season 2 will feature Italy, Season 3 will rework an existing map (please let it be Yacht) and have USA and United Kingdom operators, and Season 4 will be set in Morocco. Finally, in Year Three season four, we will return to Morocco and get two new GIGR operators.

Rainbow Six Siege is available now for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

First, finishing of year 2, Ubisoft is making good on having delayed content for a full six months earlier in the year when they pushed back one of the planned content drops to focus on "Operation Health" with the goal of improving the quality of the game itself to safeguard it's long-term future.

It sounds like fairly familiar territory, but brand manager Alex Remy suggested during the Pro League Season Three finals yesterday (start around the 2:23:00 mark for the relevant bits) that there's more to it than meets the eye. You can check out the Year 3 roadmap below.

Ubisoft had previously said it was hard to release new game modes that changed the core five-versus-five tactical gameplay of Rainbow Six Siege.
