Rainbow Six Siege Steel Wave release date, latest R6 PS4 and Xbox update news

Rainbow Six Siege Steel Wave is promising to be the next ambitious update from Ubisoft for its now long-running team shooter.

We already know that two new operators will be coming to the game that will boast unique abilities.

Ubisoft has also promised a new map rework, as well as new gadgets to help keep the meta fresh in the coming months.

A message from Ubisoft covering the new Operators and the change to House explains: “Prepare for the unexpected, because Operation Steel Wave is full of novelties!

“New Operators arrive, with gadgets that are sure to change the flow of every match they participate in. A new NIGHTHAVEN recruit, Ace, swoops in to join the Attackers, while the Defenders gain a new teammate in Melusi, an Inkaba Task Force ranger.

“The first item we need to discuss is the size of the house itself. With this rework, not only have some of the existing areas been made bigger, we also added an entirely new section on the South side, with two rooms on each floor and a staircase to connect them.

“With this new space, everyone will have more space to move and breathe, but we were also able to add a new Bomb site in TV Room and Music Room.

“Many other areas have changed, but three required special attention. Firstly, Garage has been revamped, with only one of its doors being destructible and a new barricade being added to give a different access option, while still making a Defuser plant harder.

“Secondly, what was once Workshop is now a finished Girls’ Room with an attached walk-in closet. Thirdly, lines of sight have been reduced on the North side of the building, with the main door being blocked off and the shuttered window replaced with a hallway.”

Confirmed earlier in 2020, fans are now waiting to find out when the new expansion will be launched across all platforms.


Ubisoft has yet to announce its plans to release Rainbow Six Siege Operation Steel Wave on PS4, Xbox One or PC.

We know much about what it will contain, but we don’t have a solid date to expect its launch yet from the development team.

But based on how expansions have been launched in the past, we can have an educated guess on when to expect something to happen.

Looking at previous content updates, we would expect the new Rainbow Six Siege Operation to arrive the week of June 16, 2020.

But fans will need to keep an eye on the Rainbow Six Siege social media channels in the days ahead, as the current world situation has already led to delays.

So there is still a chance that the next big Rainbow Six Siege update might not arrive as expected on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
