Rainbow Six Siege keeps going from strength to strength. Since the FPS game’s launch in December 2015, the number of players regularly diving in has steadily risen, with just a few dips in player count here and there. Now, it’s just broken a player count record, posting a new, all-time high number of concurrent players on Steam.

The on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again, and now off-again Operator is the subject of yet another exploit, so she’s off the table for Siege fans.

Rainbow Six Siege year 5 is coming up fast, and Ubisoft has just confirmed a whole bunch of early speculation, teasers, and datamining with a fresh teaser for upcoming content. The publisher’s regional PR branches seem a bit conflicted on what they’re actually announcing today, but at a minimum it appears year 5 will indeed take us to Greece and see the launch of the datamined Stadium map.
Rainbow Six Siege launched to a muted response way back in 2015, but over the course of nearly a half-decade of continuous updates and improvements, it’s become one of the biggest and most-loved multiplayer games on the market. It’s one of the vanguards of a new era in online shooters, and now Siege is about to enter a new era of its own as its lead developers leave to pursue new projects.
