Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege – Next-Generation Consoles

We are glad to announce that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be available on the next generation consoles, and that you will have the opportunity to play the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game starting December 1st.

This next generation brings innovations that allow us to continue enhancing the Rainbow Six Siege experience, and we are excited to share with you today more information on what you can look forward to on new consoles.

Easily Transition to Next-Gen

If you currently own a copy of Rainbow Six Siege on PS4 or Xbox One, and plan to stay within the same console family, you will be able to upgrade your game at no extra cost*. In addition, all players will be able to keep their progression and in-game items when transitioning between console generations. Please remember that physical game copies will not be able to transfer to discless console versions.

Enjoy Cross-Generation Play and Progression

If you are looking to get a next-gen console, don’t worry about your Rainbow Six Siege progression and in-game items when transitioning: we’ve got you covered. With the new Ubisoft Connect ecosystem, you will keep your progression and in-game items when switching between devices within the same family of consoles: from PS4 to PS5 and from Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S.

As previously announced, cross-play will also be available for players within the same console family, so that you can keep playing with your friends no matter what generation they are playing from.

As for cross-progression and cross-play between PC and consoles, or between consoles from different families, we are continuously listening to your feedback and we know this is something important to you. While these features will not be available at launch on next-gen versions, we are exploring the possibilities. We want to make sure we are taking all necessary elements into consideration to ensure we continue providing all of you with the best technical and well-rounded experience. This type of implementation needs to be thoroughly thought-through, and this is where we stand right now. We will be sure to update you in the future when we have more news to share.

Play with Enhanced Graphics and Performance on Next-Gen

Get ready to experience the thrill of enjoying the highest level of graphical enhancements that the game has to offer on console. To make sure we cater to all needs, you will be able to choose between different options, whether you wish to prioritize the best framerate, or the highest resolution, granted that you are equipped with a compatible screen device:

  • Performance Mode: Target 120 FPS with 4K Dynamic Resolution Scaling (PS5, Xbox Series X) / Target 120 FPS at 1080p (Xbox Series S)
  • Resolution Mode: Target 60 FPS with 4K resolution (PS5, Xbox Series X) / Target 60 FPS at 1728p (Xbox Series S)

For PS5 owners, you will also enjoy:

  • Deeper immersion with your DualSense controller capabilities: haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and controller sound output.
  • Activities support for Ranked, Unranked, Newcomer, Quick Match & Events so players can dive into the game faster.

For Xbox Series X|S owners, you will find:

  • Quick Resume ability that enables you to switch between multiple titles and resume instantly from where you last left off.

Additional features are also coming on all platforms with this next-gen launch, such as accessibility features (readability options and text-to-speech and speech-to-text), quick start options and the all new Ubisoft Connect overlay.

These are exciting times to be a Rainbow Six Siege player, and we hope that you are as eager as we are for what’s coming. We will see you soon!
