Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Roadmap details are starting to trickle out as fans get excited for more content.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege has seen massive growth in the past few years with no indication of slowing down. The game currently has over 50 million players and, with the teasing of Operation Void Edge, that number is only expected to swell. It appears that everything is going well for Ubisoft's favored shooter as the title turns its attention to its plans for Year 5.

Below you'll find everything players can expect out of Rainbow Six Siege this year.

Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Roadmap: Everything You Need to Know

It appears that Ubisoft will stick to its content schedule of the past with seasonal updates throughout the year. Although, its what's in these updates that has fans on the fence.

We've already been teased with Season 1's main event, Operation Void Edge, with two new operators for players to choose from. Unfortunately, these new reveals make up nearly half of the choices players will see in Year 5. There are only six operators who will be making their debut this year, according to an in-game leak. This leak was later confirmed by Community Management Lead François Roussel.

"The Year 5 Pass reflects this direction focused on features that benefit all players, not just those playing the newest Operators," he said on the game's subreddit.

It's clear that the team has other ways to benefit their players in mind—aside from new content. There will be extensive reworks, free events, and even additional core mechanics to the game. The release of six operators will also lead into what Year 6 has planned, according to Roussel.

Not much is known outside of this confirmation. Roussel's statement alludes to more passive, quality of life and general improvements rather than new missions for players to explore. Are they planning to overhaul large portions of how their game operates?

There are still a multitude of countries to explore, as well. It's possible a discovery in one of those locations will lead to a momentous shift in the way this title is played.
