The next Rainbow Six Siege update, Operation Burnt Horizon, brings two new Australian operators to the game, and adds a new map set in a service station in Australia’s red desert. The new operators, one attacker and another defender, hail from the country’s SASR.

These new operators will be showcased on Sunday, February 17 at the end of the Six Invitational. A release window might also be provided at that time.
