Earlier today, Rainbow Six Siege had a short downtime to update the game with an important patch. This update includes a number of fixes and enables players to play with Clash again. The Year 4 Season 2 update is currently live on PC, but the update for PS4 and Xbox One will be announced soon.

The patch addressed the notorious "Clash Exploit". The exploit enabled players to use Clash's secondary while having her shield deployed, making the operator overpowered. The operator was temporarily disabled by Ubisoft and has now been restored to the roster after working out a fix.

The full patch notes for the game also list several other fixes, including level design, small-scale fixes to operators, and tweaks to the game UI. The full list can be found below.

Additionally, the Rainbow Six Siege team is also undergoing some leadership changes. Recently, former game directors Alexandre Remy and Xavier Marquis announced that they are stepping away from Siege to work on other projects. This means Leroy Athanassoff will lead the team and the project. We also know that Ubisoft is working on a Rainbow Six Siege spin-off game, Rainbow Six Quarantine, for PS5, Xbox Series X and PC. A separate team is working on the PvE title.
