Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 Roadmap: Everything you need to know

Ubisoft is kicking off Rainbow Six Siege‘s Year 7 with a huge swing, as a lot of new content is planned for this tactical shooter that is aimed to massively improve gameplay and player experience.

Siege’s Year 7 is starting with Demon Veil, where we will see the Japanese operator Azami that will possibly change how the meta of the game. You can find all the new changes coming with Y7S1 Demon Veil in our post here.

The Year 7 roadmap reveal panel gave us a brief idea on what will be coming to to Siege over the next 12 months. As usual, the devs are planning to release four new operators, one in each season. However, unlike the past few years, players will finally be receiving three new maps in Year 7. Two of these maps will be introduced to all playlists, and one of them will be made only for Team Deathmatch.
