Five years after release, Rainbow Six Siege continues to be a successful online multiplayer game, boasting over 60 million players who have enjoyed or continue to enjoy the tactical first-person shooter. Now, the game is also headed to next-generation consoles and it's going to introduce major improvements.

We know that the next-gen consoles are going to be packing serious power that is capable of running upcoming games at 4K and 120 FPS. There's no reason that Ubisoft would launch the same version of the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S without making important enhancements. Recent announcements pertaining to the next-gen consoles have set a new standard for gaming and Ubisoft would want to ensure that Rainbow Six Siege meets those standards.

Additionally, players who already own the game on current consoles will be eligible for a free next-gen upgrade, which will also be launching before the end of 2020. Since Rainbow Six Siege launched on December 1, 2015, we assume that the upgrade will most likely be released around the game's fifth anniversary.

While some games have demanded a small fee for a next-gen upgrade, Siege will be one of those multiplayer games that shouldn't cause too much difficulty in bringing the game over to the next console. All-in-all, the next-generation of gaming seems to be shaping up pretty well for gamers.

Previously, Ubisoft also announced that it plans to support Rainbow Six Siege for at least 10 years. The developer has held up its promise for five years now. With the game coming to next-gen consoles, the extra processing power should give devs enough motivation and encouragement to keep the game going for another five years as envisioned.

Rainbow Six Siege is currently available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game is also being developed for PS5 and Xbox Series S/X.
