Rainbow Six Siege Operation Brutal Swarm, also known as Year 7 Season 3, will be revealed at the start of the Six Berlin Major tournament on August 21, Ubisoft announced. The company has yet to officially provide much information about the reveal of the multiplayer game’s next season, but the latest teaser suggests that it will involve a lot of small drones.
The announcement will take place on the official Rainbow Six Twitch channel at 7:30am PST / 10:30am EST / 3:30pm BST / 4:30pm CEST, and that’s when we’ll get our first official look at the new Y7S3 operator.
Dataminers, as is often the case, have already been busy sharing images and videos that purport to represent the new content on brutal swarm. Some of these have shown a shootable ammunition that releases a swarm of small drones, which then follow approaching operators. They will then report the approximate position of that operator and its relative distance to its owner every few seconds.
All of that, of course, is subject to change and a high degree of skepticism. We’ll certainly get a clearer idea of what to expect when the official reveal takes place on August 21. Ubisoft will usually open the Rainbow Six Siege test server the day after the tournament, so you’ll likely be able to jump in to turn things around on August 22.
