It seems like we won’t be getting any additional game modes for Rainbow Six Siege. Ubisoft has revealed its plans in focusing on increasing their operator roster instead.
With the recent Six Invitational e-sports tournament, much focus was put on Rainbow Six Siege. Ubisoft is reportedly building up the game’s future gameplay and strategy.
Brand Director for Rainbow Six Siege Alexandre Remy spoke about Ubisoft’s plans in increasing the operator roster to around the 50 to 100 mark. The game has 28 operators at present and eight more are scheduled for this year.
A statement on why this has to happen can be read below. But for now, it is clear that boosting the roster is a priority rather than putting up additional game modes.

According to Remy, increasing the operators gives players enough choices. He cited Thermite as an example since he was the only one who can breach into a wall so everyone had to pick him. But with several other operators, players will have more than enough choices.
What is clear with Ubisoft for now is that doubling the number of minimum operators can help players strategize more. Future operators may also function the same as old operators. This gives players alternative ways to complete tasks with the help of their operators.
The game is releasing two more operators tomorrow. This is the start of Ubisoft raising their operator roster. For them to have 100 operators by the end of its 10th year of content, Ubisoft may have to look into increasing the rate of operators they’d want to release.
Aside from the two new operators coming on February 7, it is announced that Velvet Shell is receiving four signature weapon skins. Rook’s first Year 2 Elite set will also be revealed. It consists of a victory animation and a collection of unique armor pieces.
For changes in the game, there is a new user interface that shows news, challenges, and boosters all in one place. Players will also have access to the last game mode played.
Weapon sights were also noticed to have changed. Previously, sights would look different when attached to different weapons. Now, any sight regardless of what type of weapon it is attached to will look the same.
What do you think of all these updates? Let us know below.
The game is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
