Rainbow Six: Siege is currently undergoing a Season 2 physical, with Operation Health scheduled to conclude this month. But, despite the delay in new content, players have continued to infiltrate the game.
Ubisoft has revealed that the popular tactical shooter has surpassed the 20 million registered user mark, with about 2.3 million of those players logging on daily. “Our community is growing and so is our ambition to make Siege a shooter that is here to stay,” Product Director Nicolas Lefebvre said in a blog post. “The next few weeks are very exciting as it marks the culmination of Operation Health and the release of our next season set in Hong Kong.”
Operation Health had been implemented by the dev team to make several substantial upgrades to the game and improve the overall game experience. The move pushed back the addition of Hong Kong to August and South Korea to November. A regular Poland update was eliminated, but the GROM operators will still be coming, one each in the next two Seasons.
A 15GB Y2S3.0 patch is expected soon for consoles to implement the Operation Health modifications. The PC patch will vary in size, with 26GB for non-Ultra HD setups and 42GB for Ultra HD.
"With this new patch, we plan on resetting the foundation that future patches are built upon, and establishing the Y2S3.0 patch as the new baseline that we will update the game client from," the dev team said in an update. "As a result of resetting the baseline, we must replace a significant number of the existing data forges. This is why the Y2S3.0 patch is as large as it is."
