Coming off the release of Operation Chimera, Rainbow Six Siege has surpassed 30 million registered players – and that’s not the only achievement it’s clocked. The ever-growing community also came out in force for the first major tournament of the year, the 2018 Six Invitational, which saw record numbers including 321,000 peak concurrent viewers and more than 6.2 million hours watched across all channels.
“On behalf of the entire team, we wanted to thank every member of our diverse, global community for their support of our game. Our players are the most valuable element to our game. Over the last three years, we have endeavoured to create a solid community built on transparency as we grow and evolve the ever-expanding world of Rainbow Six Siege,” said Alexandre Remy, Brand Director, Rainbow Six Siege. “We are so tremendously honoured to achieve this milestone, and we will continue to do everything we can to earn each and every new person that decides to play.”
Both Operation Chimera and the recently concluded Outbreak co-op event are a part of Rainbow Six Siege’s Year 3 content lineup, which includes two new Operators and a new map for Season Two, two new Operators and a map rework for Season Three, and two new Operators and a new map for Season Four. A new Pro League schedule has also been introduced, and will now feature two seasons from June to November and December to May, respectively. There will also be two Majors each year – the Six Invitational in February and a Six Major – this year’s will take place in Paris this August.
