Ubisoft is getting ready to launch year four of Rainbow Six Siege with Operation: Burnt Horizon. Along with the new season, the developer plans on ramping up their support for the popular first person shooter title with a few changes to how they handle updates.
Rainbow Six Siege: Update Strategy
Their first change is splitting the development team into separate sections that will cover each of the major parts of the game: events, balance, maps, and operators. Ubisoft will also create a special team that will focus on improving toxicity and player behavior to ensure every game is a pleasant experience. One change that will be implemented shortly is reflecting friendly fire damage back at trolls that are purposely team killing.
Rainbow Six Siege fans can still expect the usual release of eight new operators per season, but the Ubisoft is going to put a larger focus on maps. The team already announced one new map and three reworks for year four of the game. The reworks will cosmetically change some features on the maps and move cover to create new chokepoints.
The company stated that they will now have to shift focus to cater to new players and those that have invested their time since Siege launched in 2015. This means that server queues will be altered to help new players get their footing and ensure that veterans have the same competitive experience they've come to expect.
Ubisoft wants to place a greater focus on new events that introduce new themes and limited time activities to the game. The development team wants to test new twists on gameplay with these events and will use community feedback to see what works and what doesn't.
