Rainbow Six Siege: No Sequel Is Planned
Ubisoft is not planning to release a sequel to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC game.
Rainbow Six Siege might not have gotten off to the best start, but it's doing much better now in terms of player figures and general sentiment--and it's not going anywhere soon. Brand director Alexandre Remy said in an interview that no sequel is planned, at least not yet. Instead, you can expect Ubisoft to continue to support Siege through the games-as-a-service model.
"We are saying extremely loudly here: there is no sequel planned," Remy told Eurogamer. "We will be here for the next 10 years. So expect more Rainbow 6 in your life for quite some time."
Ubisoft is planning to release 100 Operators for the game over the course of its lifetime; there are currently 36 in the game, and eight more are coming during the upcoming Year 3 schedule. "That 100 is a symbol of the longevity we want to have for the game," Remy explained.
Siege was originally released in December 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC to little fanfare and issues that included things like server problems. It has gone on to become one of modern AAA gaming's biggest comeback stories, reaching 27 million players by Ubisoft's latest count. This number may include people who played on free weekends, but whatever the case, it is a huge figure and the game is no doubt doing much better now.

Ubisoft's ongoing commitment to Siege has been enduring and impressive. The next big update, Operation Chimera, adds the Outbreak co-op event, which is completely different than the base game as you fight against aliens. You can check out some gameplay footage from the Outbreak mode in the video embedded above.
Outbreak will also add loot boxes that you can pay real money for. Some people have voiced concerns about this, and Ubisoft was quick to respond to say they will be for cosmetic items only.
