Year 2 of Rainbow Six Siege is starting soon with Operation Velvet Shell. We’ll be heading to the rocky shores of Ibiza, Spain in new “Coastline” map.


In addition, two Operators from Spanish Grupo Especial de Operaciones (G.E.O.) will be joining Team Rainbow, the first of which we can introduce today! Ryad Ramírez Al-Hassar (AKA Jackal) became a member of Cuerpo Nacional de Policía after the death of his brother, determined to unravel the mysterious events surrounding his death. To further hone his skills on the field, he became a member of the G.E.O. Ramírez is equipped with the C7E and PDW9 as primary weapons, and the ITA 12S and USP 40 as secondary weapons.


To learn more about our new map, be sure to join us in Montreal for the Six Invitational, starting on February 3rd. You can also tune in on the official Twitch channel for this massive 3-day celebration revealing the Year 2 Roadmap, Operation Velvet Shell live demo, Dev panels, and intense Pro League competition.
