Rainbow Six Siege's Next Operators May Have Leaked
New Operators are definitely on the way, and this might be our first look at them.
The latest Operators for Rainbow Six Siege were only released earlier this month, but already players are looking ahead to what's next. We know we can expect more new Operators in the next seasonal expansion, but it appears we've now gotten an early first look at them courtesy of some sleuthing by fans.
As shared on Reddit by user Mr_Donald_Duck, images and names of two Italian Operators have been discovered in the PC version's files. Essentially, we get placeholder images that show what each character looks like and what their name is--Alibi and Maestro. Alibi is seen flanked by two translucent silhouettes that resemble her, while Maestro is seen with some kind of backpack and shotgun shells hanging from his chest.
Prior to this, Reddit user Artex3 shared information from the game files that may have hinted at what kind of gadgets to expect from the Operators that we now know are likely to be Alibi and Maestro. These included references to holograms, decoys, and bulletproof cameras. The former two seemingly match up with Alibi's picture and suggest she'll be able to fool enemies with fake versions of herself. Maestro, then, would be left to reinforce cameras.

Bear in mind that these leaks may not necessarily turn out to be what we see from Season 2 of Year 3, and that things could always change. But it's not uncommon for details on new Operators to leak in advance of Ubisoft officially revealing them.
Rainbow Six Siege received the big Chimera update earlier in March to kick off Year 3 of the game. That included two new Operators and the limited-time co-op Outbreak mode, which is playable until April 3. We don't yet have an official date for when the next season begins, but a new Rainbow Six Siege update was just recently released.
