The release date for Rainbow Six Siege’s latest season Operation Neon Dawn might have been potentially revealed thanks to PlayStation’s latest blog post.
Rainbow Six Siege’s next-gen update was announced yesterday by Ubisoft. And on PlayStation’s website the post stated that the “native PS5 version of Rainbow Six Siege will be available December 1, kicking off alongside Year 5 Season 4!”, most possibly hinting that the new season will begin at the same date.
The next-generation update will significantly improve the Siege experience on the new consoles with two new modes: Performance and Resolution. However, the graphics uplift might not be very noticeable, as there are no high-resolution texture packs or ray-tracing included.
But new console-users will definitely feel the faster load times thanks to the fast SSDs available in the next-gen consoles.
With Operation Neon Dawn, Ubisoft will also be changing the “catcher” operators significantly, as they try to mitigate the “20-second meta”. Siege players were frustrated with the number of bulletproof gadgets available in a defensive line-up, and because of these “catcher” ops like Jager, it was getting more difficult and time-consuming to clear all these gadgets. This turned this game into a utility clearing simulator for Attackers until the final 20-seconds, when the main execution usually took place.
But with Y5S4, fans are hopeful that they will be able to watch more exciting gameplay in the upcoming Siege tournaments like the Six Invitational 2021, which will be taking place in February as confirmed by Ubisoft.

Operation Neon Dawn’s release date has not been confirmed by Ubisoft as of yet, except for the recent Tweet from the Rainbow Six’s main Twitter account, which revealed the December 1 launch date. However, the Tweet was quickly deleted, so we advise you to take all this information with a grain of salt.
