Rainbow Six Siege Xbox Series, PS5 update coming next week

Mark those calendars: the update drops 1 December.

Rainbow Six Siege will receive its Xbox Series S & X and PS5 update next week on 1 December, Ubisoft has today confirmed.

The update will allow for 4K and 120FPS (frames-per-second) on compatible HDMI 2.1-capable displays. Players will also have the option to choose a priority on performance (FPS) or resolution (4K).

“Current players on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to keep their progression, and also upgrade their game at no extra cost on the same family of devices,” Ubisoft advised. “Cross-generation play is also available within the same family of devices, allowing PlayStation 5 players to face PlayStation 4 players, and Xbox One players to face Xbox Series X|S players. Cross-play between different families of consoles or between PC and consoles is not currently supported.”

The PS5 version will also offer DualSense capabilities.

The news comes as Ubisoft has also announced a new charity bundle that will support US-based AbleGamers charity.

“Beginning at the launch of Year 5 Season 4, Rainbow Six Siege players will be able to purchase a bundle with a uniform, weapon skin, charm, and headgear,” Ubisoft said. “One hundred percent of net proceeds, with a minimum of $6 USD per bundle sold, will be donated to The AbleGamers Charity.”

Rainbow Six Siege is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4..
