Rainbow six siege new operation leak

From a recent post on the r/Rainbow6 subreddit, we have had our first leak of the possible, map artwork, operators and more!

The Post comes from Reddit user u/UbimanCZSK, a long-time member of the Rainbow 6 community.

There is no confirmation from Ubisoft as of yet. However, fans have been on the case and think the leak is genuine.

Art

The Leak shows 2 characters standing back to back. One male one female.

The colours and artwork match with other leaks we’ve already fans, leading fans to believe this is most likely legitimate.

The previous leak had links to some sort of breaching device, which seems to be similar to the art we see in the new image

Operators

In the leaked image, we see two operators standing back to back. It’s hard to tell their nationality, but it seems like they are not from the same place.

 It’s more likely they are part of the same organisation. (Similar to the operators released in Operation Chimera).

Their names are said to be Yana (left) and Oryx (right).

Oryx’s suspected ability is to be able to run through walls. The artwork in the image seems to follow this speculation, as well as previous leaks we’ve seen for the upcoming season

As for Yana, we haven’t had any insight into what her ability may be.

From the artwork, it’s clear she is the defending operator. Her gadget is on her left hand and seems to be some sort of wrist-mounted gun.

We will have to wait for some sort of official reveal from Ubisoft to see what their abilities really are.

Map

There haven’t been any reveals of a map or map rework for the next chapter of Rainbow 6. However, as usual, there will definitely be a new map coming with the next season.

We already know there will be a new map ban system coming to the competitive/ranked playlist.

This will allow players to vote on maps they don’t want to play on, in the ranked mode.

This is a feature fans have been wanting since Rainbow 6 hit the competitive scene.

There are also small ‘quality of life’ changes coming, such as the changes to debris glitches.

Battle Pass

With the addition of the ‘Road to S.I. 2020’ Battle Pass in Year 4 Season 4. We can expect to see more of this sort of content on the way.

We can expect to see Ubisoft implementing this sorting of content into upcoming seasons.
