Ubisoft has officially announced that they will not be releasing Operation Vector Glare on June 7 as originally planned, meaning that fans will have to wait a little longer for the new Rainbow Six Season to begin. The R6 development team announced earlier this year that a new operator named Sens who can deploy a unique Projector System would be introduced in the upcoming operation called “Vector Glare.”
Along with the new team deathmatch map, shooting range, and Battle Pass, this new gadget has been in testing since the beginning of the new season. Nevertheless, problems have arisen during testing of this new content, delaying its release until later this week.
Ubisoft Has Confirmed The New Season’s Changes To Rainbow Six Siege 2
Ubisoft has announced that the June 7th, 2022 release date for Operation Vector Glare and the new season of Rainbow Six Siege has been pushed back. The PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and personal computers are all affected by this.
The official R6 website still lists the update as arriving in June 2022, but we no longer have a release date for when it will be available to download and play. Ubisoft has given some explanation for the delay, saying that it was due to a problem that would have been problematic for players and promising that a new release date will be announced as soon as possible.
After completing a testing pass, we’ve identified a player experience issue and have decided to delay the release of Vector Glare until we can fix it,” reads the full message shared by Ubisoft. As soon as possible, we will announce the new date and provide additional information.

As was previously mentioned, the new Vector Glare Operator is equipped with an R.O.U. Projector System that can obscure observation points. Because Sens is an attacker, albeit not a particularly swift one, it will be important to make good use of the throwable Projector.
In addition, Close Quarter, the first dedicated TD map that prioritises movement over defensive setups, is being released as a new deathmatch map. As the June 2022 release date draws nearer, more details about this additional content will be revealed.
Given Ubisoft’s general push toward fewer standalone releases and more long-term services, and the game’s own trajectory since its 2015 release, it’s not surprising that Rainbow Six Siege 2 isn’t in the works. Developers have explained why they are not planning a sequel to Rainbow Six Siege as part of today’s online Q&A with fans.
