Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 and 8 Roadmap Update: Confirmed and delayed features

Ubisoft has shared an updated Year 7 roadmap for Rainbow Six Siege to show the community what is coming next season and what has been delayed.

Rainbow Six Siege’s Y7S4 has been a much-anticipated season, as multiple exciting features that were previously delayed were supposed to release at the end of Year 7. However, there is some good and bad news for the Siege fans, as some of these changes are confirmed for the upcoming season, but a few have also been delayed.

You can find the full roadmap update from Ubisoft below.

ROADMAP UPDATES

[MAJOR FEATURES] RANKED 2.0

Status: confirmed for Y7S4

The Ranked 2.0 system has been fine-tuned and is ready to be released during Y7S4. This will change the way your ranks are attributed as well as updating several other parameters. More information on this feature will be shared during the Y7S4 reveal panel.

[UI] CONTROLLER INPUT PRESETS

New targeted delivery: Early Y8

Our team is currently working on several improvements for consoles such as Advanced Controller Options to customize aiming, which will be released during Y7S4. We’ve decided to move the release of the Controller Layout Presets to early Year 8 to focus on these other console quality-of-life updates.

[EVENTS] PERMANENT ARCADE MODE

New targeted delivery: Y8S1

We are hard at work to bring several former Arcade Game Modes into the game permanently, but in order to finalize their implementation we will need more time than anticipated. In order to bring you the best experience, we are shifting the release date of this feature from Y7S4 to Y8S1.

[PLAYER PROTECTION] EARLY VOICE CHAT PENALTIES

New targeted delivery: Y8S1

We want our players to feel protected, by allowing them to play safely and avoid any undesirable verbal abuse. The end goal is to reduce behaviors such as insults, threats, offensive language and more. We will also continue to adjust the thresholds of reputation penalties that were previously released in order to detect and look at repeat offenders that perform regular abuses through our game systems (friendly fire and unwanted communication). We need time to learn from the Reputation Penalties that have recently been deployed, so we are shifting the release date of Early Voice Chat Penalties from Y7S4 to Y8S1.

[PLAYER PROTECTION] REPUTATION SCORE DISPLAY (BETA)

Status: confirmed for Y7S4

This new feature will allow players to access their Reputation Standing. During the beta phase, coming in Y7S4, players won’t receive any positive or negative effects based on that Standing. Our objective is to start with a safe onboarding process that gives everyone a chance to adapt and modify their playstyles and interactions accordingly. We are looking forward to the community’s input as we continue to improve this feature.
