Attack of the Fanboy

Rainbow Six Siege‘s first expansion Operation: Black Ice has been set back a few days according to Ubisoft.

The news has been confirmed through the official Rainbow Six twitter account, with the game’s first major expansion will now¬†release on February 2, as opposed to the original launch date of January 12.

There will be four expansions heading to Siege this year, with Operation: Black Ice the first.


Season pass holders will have access to two new operators straight off the bat – without having to spend real or in-game money – while everyone else will have to wait a week before being able to earn them. Ubisoft have also stated that everybody will have access to the new Operation: Black Ice map as soon as the update goes live.


The two new operators will be part of the Canadian Joint Task Force 2 anti-terrorism unit, coming with unique weapons and gadgets, while a handful of new skins will also be available.
