Rainbow Six: Siege has been out in the wild since December 2015, but Ubisoft is continuing to support the popular tactical shooter with a slew of new content and updates for Year 2, as detailed in a new developer diary.
Siege is getting new Operators throughout the year, and the old Operators are also being revamped, rebalanced, and even remodeled. Additionally, the old, slow matchmaking system is being thrown out and replaced with a new one-step system, which should allow players to hop into matches much more quickly. Perhaps most importantly, the metagame is being reworked, with the addition of loot drops which should, ideally, reduce the grind and hasten players' access to premium Operators.

The first taste of Year 2 content comes in the form of the "Velvet Shell" update, releasing tomorrow, February 7. The patch contains two new Operators and one new map.This patch will revamp the game's menu system to streamline the experience for players eager to jump straight into the action.
