Rainbow Six Siege Reaches 25 Million Players Just In Time for Operation White Noise

Rainbow Six Siege is starting to make its success known.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege just crossed 25 million registered players, just as the new Operation White Noise content drops.

Despite middling critical reactions when it Rainbow Six Siege first launched in 2015, the game has steadily been making marked improvements and players have begun to notice. New maps, new characters and gameplay improvements have been paying off for the game as players continue to sign-up to play Siege.

Operation White Noise, which we previewed last month, is the last mission for Siege's 2017 year of content. White Noise introduces three new operators with Dokkaebi, Vigil, and Zofia, along with the new map, Myeok Tower. The operation is live now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Ubisoft already teased Year 3's content including a new event called Outbreak, which will be tied to next year's first mission: Operation Chimera.

Outbreak is unique in that it's a co-op mode where players will fight against an unnamed (probably zombies) enemy. This is because Operation Chimera has some kind of biohazard theme apparently.
