Ubisoft has announced that Rainbow Six Siege‘s Y7S2 Operation Vector Glare release date is going to be pushed back due to some technical issues.

Siege’s Year 7 Season 2 was set to be released on June 7th, but Ubisoft now had to make the difficult decision to delay the update.

The new season apparently failed its ‘testing pass’, and the devs will now be looking to fix this major issue before releasing it to the live server.

“After completing a testing pass, we’ve identified a player experience issue and have decided to postpone the release of Vector Glare in order to address it. We’ll share details on the new date as soon as we can.” – stated Ubisoft.

As the Pro League operator quarantine phase has been removed, Ubisoft has to be completely sure that the new operator is running the way they would like and not cause any game-breaking issues. However, we are not completely sure what this “player experience issue” exactly refers to and it might not be even related to the new operator.

Operation Vector Glare was released on the PC Test Server on May 24th and was supposed to run for 2-weeks, which is shorter than the usual testing timeline. But with the release date now being postponed, it might stay on the TTS for a longer period.

Siege’s Y7S2 Vector Glare is set to bring the new operator Sens, the highly-anticipated shooting range, TDM map, and more. We will update you with the release date of the new season once Ubisoft confirms it, so make sure to follow us.
