Rainbow Six Siege Teases Void Edge, Its Next Big Update

"Look into your darkness."


Rainbow Six Siege has begun teasing its next big update, dropping a name and a tagline for the upcoming season. This comes just as Ubisoft prepares to reveal more details for Year 5 at its R6 Invitational tournament this week.

The game's official Twitter account dropped the teaser with an ominous-looking visual, and the words "Look into your darkness." The season has been dubbed Operation Void Edge, which sounds right at home alongside similar titles like Ember Rise and Shifting Tides.

Now Playing: Rainbow Six Siege - Six Invitational 2020 "The Program" Cinematic Trailer

Void Edge seems primed to be the first season of Year 5 content, which will be detailed at the R6 Invitational in Montreal. It's ongoing now, and playoffs will begin tomorrow, February 11. The last tiers of the playoffs and finals will begin February 14. The Year 5 details will drop sometime during these festivities, but Ubisoft hasn't detailed exactly when to expect it.

The championship will be doling out a $3 million prize pool, which includes some proceeds from the Road to SI 2020 Battle Pass. That event will run through February 16, so you still have a little more time to get the bonuses, including unique cosmetics like special Operator sportswear. It also takes place in a special map made just for the event.

Rainbow Six Siege seasons tend to last roughly three months, which makes March due for a new one after the December 2019 launch of Shifting Tides. Seasons regularly include map and balance changes, a new battle pass with cosmetics to earn, and two new Operators.
