100 Playable Operators Planned For Rainbow Six Siege
Well the operators start coming and they don't stop coming.
After a rocky start, Rainbow Six Siege has found its feet and Ubisoft is planning a heck of a lot of updates.
In a recent interview, Alexandre Remy, Rainbow Six brand director, revealed that the game could be expanding significantly in the future by using the number of operators in the game as a rough guide to how many additions Ubisoft may add.
"We are looking at developing the game with 100 Operators" said Remy. "I'll let you do the math and work out how many years that does". That's a heck of a lot of content Ubi's thinking of adding. "There's no reason for us to stop there", he added.
Ubisoft has previously stated that the minimum number of operators it wanted in Siege would be 50, after launching with 20 back in 2015.
"The moment that we hit 50 operators, that's the minimum that we actually want." Remy stated in February this year. "The idea is that you actually want enough operators so that [for] each pick you have a choice. Thermite for a long time was not a choice, everyone had to pick him in a team because he was the only one who could breach into a reinforced wall. Introducing Hibana, all of a sudden the player could perform that task with a choice. At that moment every choice is tough choice for the player and not an obvious one. To come to that moment, you need a minimum of 50. When we have 50, that'll be the game is at its peak in terms of strategy".
Currently Siege has just over 30 operators at the moment as of the recent Operation Blood Orchid update, with the 3 latest additions being from the Hong Kong & Polish forces. The game isn't even 2 years old yet and it's already received many updates, so it's easy to imagine how long tripling (and then some) the number of operators would take. It seems like Ubi's already pitched its tent ready for a long stay. With 20 million registered players, and 2.3 million of those signing in daily, they have a good reason to be setting up camp.
