In a post on Ubisoft’s blog, creative director Leroy Athanassoff confirmed that present versions of Siege would work on next-gen consoles.

“The game will be backwards compatible, meaning that you can take your disc of Rainbow Six Siege on PS4 and put it in your PS5, or take your Xbox One disc and put it in your Xbox Series X,” Athanassoff said.

Furthermore, Rainbow Six Siege will also support cross-generation matchmaking. “For example, PlayStation 5 players can play with PlayStation 4 players, and Xbox Series X players can play with Xbox One players”.

“What we know for sure is that we don’t want to break our community, to split our community, and we don’t want to make you buy another Rainbow Six Siege at full price,” he added.

We knew that both next-gen consoles support backward compatibility. However, we didn’t know how many of these compatible titles would be ready to play at launch. Overall this is great news for all the Siege players out there who were considering to upgrade their existing consoles.
