Ubisoft reworks Rainbow Six Siege esports structure and reveals Year 5 ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

With Six Invitational 2020 ended this weekend, Ubisoft announced some major changes to Rainbow Six Siege's professional scene structure. After the Pro League Season 11 finals in Brazil's São Paulo, the pro-league in its current iteration will come to an end. Instead, it will be reconstructed into a regional formation, divided into four stages. Four regions will take part in the launch of the updated format.

  • The European league will consist of 10 teams. In addition to the major league, there will be national cups. All of these championships will create a multi-stage system. FACEIT and LiveNation will assist in organizing the tournaments.
  • The Asia-Pacific region will be divided into two leagues: the North will include 12 teams from Japan, South Korea, and Southeast Asia; while representatives of Australia, New Zealand, and South Asia will fight in the South. ESL will hold the tourneys there.
  • South America has been divided into three divisions: Mexico, Brazil, and South America. The number of teams in Brazil will increase to 10, and Mexico will have offline tournaments. Ubisoft itself will organize the events.
  • What about North America, you may ask. There are virtually no parts for North America, but we know that the United States and Canada will have their own leagues, obviously. 

The teams will collect points from each official tournament to set a regional table, and three of the four stages will be completed by Majors, which will include four representatives from each region. Six Invitational will be held at the end of a competitive year for those teams who earn the most points. 

These important changes will launch in 2021. There are two Majors still in 2020: in August in North America and in November in Europe. In subsequent seasons, venues will change, and Six Invitational will be always held in Montreal.


The developers had also shared the plans for the future intra-company changes, which will be distributed over 4 seasons.

  • Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Season 1 - March 2020
  • Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Season 2 - June 2020
  • Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Season 3 - September 2020
  • Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Season 4 - December 2020 

Rainbow Six Year 5 Updates

Ubisoft also will launch a replay system. It will become accessible on the test servers before the start of the 6th year of the game.

In each of the seasons mentioned above, the devs will add new operators, as well as remake some of the current maps. There are also plans to change some old Operators (scroll down to find out!).

The recently announced Operation Void Edge will appear on the test servers today. Iana and Oryx will appear in the game alongside the update, as well as the House rework.

Void Edge Operators Brief Review

Iana can set a drone with her holograms, while Oryx can smash through walls (RIP shielders?).

We'll also see a new ping system inspired by some popular battle royale games.


And dessert...

Tachanka rework release date!

Lord Tachanka has become a meme in the Rainbow Six Siege community since he's the least picked Operator and, for reasons, one of the most useless ones. The game is about dynamic and speed, while Tachanka is not. So, Ubisoft has announced that they will show us a fresh and new Lord Tachanka with a mobile RP-46 and a grenade launcher! They've already changed his bio, so you can take a look at it in the game. 

Tachanka rework is on its way to reach us in 2020. 


As we can say, every year Ubisoft works hard and, well, great on their main competitive FPS. They seem to find an appropriate way to develop it, spreading their forces and expanding the community. You can learn more about the updates on the official R6S website

Operation Void Edge releases on March, 11 alongside Rainbow Six Siege Year Five
