Rainbow Six Siege Esports Director Says They Want Bring 100 Operators to the Game
During an interview with Rainbow Six Siege Esports Director Wei Yue and Ubisoft's Director of Esports Che Chou, esports role in the game's longevity was discussed.
With constant seasonal updates, Rainbow Six Siege has continued to grow its large roster of Operators at a consistent pace. It seems the roster is only going to grow as Ubisoft wants to bring 100 Operators to the game.
When speaking with Rainbow Six Siege Esports Director Wei Yue and Ubisoft’s Senior Director of Esports Che Chou, they discussed the inevitable acceptance of esports by the general public, as well as its role in prolonging the life of Rainbow Six Siege. “Really, our goal around Rainbow Six esports is to create an excellent and engaging program that keeps the game alive and interesting for 10 plus years,” says Chou. “All of this is in service to the game and its community.”
Yue continues to discuss the theme of a “10 plus” year plan for Rainbow Six Siege. “We want to be here in 10 years; we are here to stay,” says Yue. “We want to bring 100 Operators to the game, so we have a long way to go.”
With the release of the newest update, Operation: Ember Rise, Rainbow Six Siege now has a total of 50 Operators in its ever-growing roster (if you don’t count Recruit). That means they only need another 50 more to go to hit that goal. As everyone’s favorite 80’s frontman Jon Bon Jovi crooned on the song Living on a Prayer, “we’re halfway there.”
Amaru is the new attack Operator who uses the Garra Hook to zip up to windows and ledges with ease. Goyo is the new defense Operator who is armed with a few deployable shields with an incendiary grenade attached to it. You can check out our preview to see what we thought of the new update.
A lot of Rainbow Six Siege esports happened this week during the Six Major Raleigh 2019. The Grand Finals are just about to begin between Team Empire and G2 Esports.
