Rainbow Six Siege has quite a few Operators to choose from already, but according to the brand director for Rainbow Six, they have plans to add plenty more in the future.
Totaling over 30 Operators already, Rainbow Six Siege has been doing pretty well recently with new Operators and continual updates to fix bugs and add new content. In a recent interview with Rainbow Six's brand director Alexandre Remy, PC Gamer asked about future content, and Remy responded by saying the game is definitely here to stay with plenty of content to come.
"Oh yeah, we are looking at developing the game with 100 Operators — I'll let you do the math and work out how many years that does," Remy told PC Gamer when asked about the future of Rainbow Six Siege. "There's no reason for us to stop there."
Considering the number of Operators currently in the game along with the fact that the Tom Clancy game has only been out for not even two years yet, adding more Operators in order to reach at least 100 playable characters will take quite a while. The number could definitely be reached much quicker if more updates come quicker, and from the way that updates have been rolling out recently, it's definitely possible that more Operators will be seen sooner rather than later.
One of the biggest series of updates that has come recently is the Operation Health project, another topic that was discussed the Remy's interview.
"Operation Health is a big statement in the sense that we are clearly saying that quality of service, the quality of the game comes first," Remy told PC Gamer. "This is why we had to postpone the seasonal content that we usually roll out: to make space and prioritise online improvements, to employ a new content strategy where we put featured content on test servers and then, when it's ready, deploy it to other platforms."
Rainbow Six Siege certainly seems to have found its footing through new content and performance improvements, and if what Remy said is true, Rainbow Six fans will be kept busy for quite some time.
