The content map of Rainbow Six: Siege Operation for the fifth year shows that the update for the sixth year is very large.
At the six invitational tournaments on the weekend, Rainbow Six: Siege Developer Ubisoft had a lot of discussions about its game plan for this year (5th year) and the contents of the 6th year.
As mentioned earlier, the fifth grade will bring six new operators to the game, compared to only eight in previous years. The first two, Season 1 are shown in the same stream.
Ubisoft proves this by saying that it will reduce the number of operators, which allows development teams to focus on improving gameplay, such as reworking existing operators.
The publisher has not disclosed the price of the 5th grade pass, so this discount can be reflected here. However, next year, Siege will be even less.
In the sixth year, the number of operators has been reduced to only four throughout the year, with only one in each season. The roadmap for sixth grade is unclear, but it seems that Siege players will not get a new map. Rework is a more likely outcome.
Ubisoft will also continue to promote the "Battle Pass" model next year. As this year, four "Battle Passes" will be confirmed in the sixth year. Similarly, the price of Year 6 passes has not yet been determined-although we do not expect the news to decline until early 2021.
This is particularly interesting considering that Ubisoft has confirmed that Siege will be released on PS5 and Xbox Series X. The game may be coming to an end.
However, it is more likely that developers are working behind the scenes to upgrade and rebrand Siege. Generally, when this happens, you can expect the content in the current version to slowly enter the new version, which can explain the slowdown of new content in 2020 and 2021.
