Rainbow Six Siege Y9S2 Operation New Blood is almost here. The full reveal of the new season of Operation New Blood is taking place today during the Manchester Major final, so you won’t want to miss it. Find out more about the time and where to watch.

Rainbow Six Siege Y9S2 is officially titled ‘Operation New Blood’. While this season surely has generated less hype than Y9S1, Siege players can still expect to see some great changes, such as Recruit rework, Siege Marketplace launch, and more.

Ubisoft already released some teasers on the new season, revealing the two new reworked Recruits: Striker and Sentry.

R6S Y9S2 Reveal Panel: Time and Where to Watch

Rainbow Six Siege Y9S2 Operation New Blood full reveal panel will take place during the Manchester Major on May 26 at 9:00 AM PT / 6:00 PM CET.

You can watch the reveal panel on http://twitch.tv/Rainbow6 and at https://www.youtube.com/@RainbowSixEsports. However, by watching on Twitch, Siege players will be able to earn a free Twitch Drop, which includes a charm.

The latest season of Rainbow Six Siege will introduce the Recruit rework, which will give players two new operators: one Attacker and one Defender. We can see from the teaser, the attacking recruit has two secondary gadgets: impact EMPs and a Hard-Breaching gadget to breach reinforced walls without the help of a teammate.

While the current recruit does have the loadout to bring two secondary gadgets, this combination of hard-breaching ability is not included. This change for solo-breaching power has not sit quite well with some Siege players, as Rainbow Six Siege is about teamwork and good communication.

The new season will also launch the much-awaited Siege Marketplace, which is currently in beta. So more players can now trade their skins for R6 Credits. Players can also expect to see balancing changes in the form of Fenrir and Solis nerf, but more changes are also expected. A new ‘Endless Drill’ map training playlist has also been teased by Ubisoft.
