Ubisoft has plenty of news about Rainbow Six: Siege available this weekend. The new DLC "Operation Void Edge" was presented in more detail, but one also dared to look ahead to the sixth year of content – and that means fewer operators.

The tactical shooter Rainbow Six: Siege continues to be so successful that it should now also be available on the next-gen platforms PS5 and Xbox Series X. In addition, Ubisoft continues to provide fresh game content, but it will be fewer in the future.
As part of the Six Invitational, Ubisoft had published a roadmap for the current fifth year of content, confirming that this time there will be six fresh operators instead of eight. Year 6 will continue in 2021, but then the scope of new characters will be further reduced.

As can be seen from the timetable for Year 6, Ubisoft plans only one new operator per season or DLC. The makers base the decision on the fact that the development team can simply concentrate better on gameplay improvements and the revision of existing operators due to the smaller number of new characters.
In addition, Ubisoft will continue to rely on the Battle Pass model in Year 6; a price for the Year 6 Pass has not yet been mentioned.
Meanwhile, the current DLC "Operation Void Edge" has been presented in detail. You can watch a new trailer with lots of relevant information below. It shows the previously indicated new operators Oryx and Iana in detail. Iana is an attack character with holographic skills, while Oryx is designed to be more defensive.
