Rainbow Six Siege 2022 Roadmap

Siege Y7S2 Release Date

Update 3 - Following a slight delay, Ubisoft says Operation Vector Glare will begin on June 14.

Update 2 - Vector Glare has been delayed, with Ubisoft telling fans: "We’ve identified a player experience issue and have decided to postpone the release of Vector Glare in order to address it"

Update 1 - Ubisoft confirms Vector Glare will release on June 7

At the time of writing a release date for Rainbow Six Siege Y7S2 has not been confirmed, however, it shouldn’t be too difficult to work out when the next season for the game should launch if we take a look at past content drops. You can take a look at the table below to see the start dates for previous seasons since Year 4 in 2019. As you can see, the second season in the yearly roadmap always starts in June. Given new seasons typically start on a Tuesday, we suspect that Rainbow Six Siege Y7S2 will start on June 14, 2022. In addition, since Y7S2 will require some level of testing, we suspect we’ll see the new season arrive on live servers at some stage in May 2022.
