Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 is fast approaching with Ubisoft set to unveil its 2022 roadmap for the tactical shooter later this month.
The publisher has promised at look at what’s to come with the potential for new maps, operators, and modes coming in the near future.
A Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 Season 1 preview panel will take place on February 19th during the Six Invitational 2022. This will be followed by a Year 7 roadmap presentation on February 20th, right before the Six Invitational 2022 Grand Final. Details on this year’s tournament can be found further down.
Ubisoft has yet to reveal any Y7S1 details though we’ll likely see a teaser video ahead of its big reveal. This should also give us a release date for Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 Season 1. For the past few years, debut seasons have typically dropped in early to mid March.
As with any new season, there is no shortage of alleged leaks surrounding new content and operator balances. One source, benjaminstrike, has reported that Y7S1 will be called Operation Demon Veil and will introduce new operator Azami who, according to a now-deleted Reddit leak, uses high tech throwing knives as their unique gadget.
Other details from benjaminstrike hint at a Goyo rework as well as what’s included in the upcoming Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 Pass.
There will be a Year 7 pass featuring:
– 4 Year 7 Operators with 14-day early access
– 4 headgears and uniforms
– Access to the 4 Year 7 Battle Passes
– 30% bonus on Battle Points
– Unlock the first 20 tiers on each Year 7 Battle Pass
Available for purchase until March 21st 2022.
