Rainbow Six Siege Now Has 20 Million Registered Players

Ubisoft has announced that its first-person shooter, Rainbow Six Siege, has reached the 20 million registered players milestone. The game, which released in December 2015, has more than 2.3 million players signing on daily.

Since launch, Rainbow Six Siege has expanded to 30 operators from the initial 20, and offers 16 maps. “Our community is growing and so is our ambition to make Siege a shooter that is here to stay,” said Product Director Nicolas Lefebvre. “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.”

Here’s how Ubisoft describes Operation Health:

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. The team has most recently conducted public technical tests to gather information on new servers that will help improve match stability. Additionally, the aforementioned Season Three will bring two Operators from Hong Kong’s Special Duties Unit (SDU), a new Operator from Poland’s Grupa Reagowania Operacyjno-Manewrowego (GROM), a new map, and new weapons. New Operators open up new strategic possibilities and challenge players to come up with new tactics, making the start of a new season the perfect time to dive in to the action.
