Siege won't be getting new maps until all existing maps have been reworked

1 month ago   |   By PCGamesN

Year 5 will see six new operators instead of the customary eight, and the development team tells us we won't be seeing new maps until reworks of all existing maps have been completed.
Speaking to us at the Siege Invitational in Montreal, game director Leroy Athanassoff explained the decision to focus back on existing maps rather than on building new ones. He says that with the current competitive state of the game, and...

Rainbow Six Siege Tachanka rework fully revealed

Rainbow Six Siege Tachanka rework fully revealed

Ubisoft reveal massive changes to Rainbow Six Siege esports

1 month ago   |   By PCGamesN

Amid the reveal of Operation Void Edge and the Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 reveal, Ubisoft has also revealed some exciting changes to the format, structure, and sustainability of its flagship esports title.
For starters, Rainbow Six Esports is making a concerted push towards better regionalisation. For many years now the different competitive regions of Siege esports - EU, LATAM, NA, and APAC - have been treated in broadly the same way, which creates lots of issues for regions like APAC where huge distances between teams makes scrimming very difficult. APAC is now being split into two...
