One of the upcoming DLC drops for Rainbow Six Siege will feature a Japanese operator.

Ubisoft Japan has released a sneak peek at an upcoming operator for Rainbow Six Siege. The operator, as you migth expect, will be part of the Japanese Special Assault Team (SAT).

The company’s Twitter account posted a single image of the operator carrying an assault rifle. The description is in Japanese, but it promises a release this autumn, with more details to follow.


Ubisoft has previously outlined its post-launch plans for the game, which consist of four DLC packs, called ‘seasons’. Operation Black Ice, Siege’s first pack, released earlier in the week.

Judging by the DLC schedule, which releases a pack every three months, either of last two could be the one to feature a Japanese theme, so we’ll have to wait and see.
