In a recent blog post by Ubisoft, numbers for active players have been released, reporting that they have over 20 million players registered on the Rainbow Six: Siege network, with over 2.2 million active players each day.
Rainbow Six: Siege originally started out with a roster of 20 operators, but now closing in on it’s second year, boasts 30 operators. Ubisoft Product Director Nicolas Lefebvre vows to keep this title in gamers hands for much longer:
Our community is growing and so is our ambition to make Siege a shooter that is here to stay. The next few weeks are very exciting as it marks the culmination of Operation Health and the release of our next season set in Hong Kong.
Operation Health was an initiative started by the development team to issue a series of fixes and upgrades with the goal of improving the overall Rainbow Six Siege experience, most likely not anticipating the success of the title. Season Three will begin in the coming months and will bring along with it, two new operators from Hong Kong, a new operator from Poland, a new map and last but not least, new weapons.
