Ubisoft has unveiled the next major update for Rainbow Six Siege, which is called Operation Blood Orchid.
The second update in the game's Year 2 of content will launch on August 29th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The dry spell is the result of Ubisoft pushing back its expansion plans in order to make room for Operation Health, an initiative targeted at addressing long-reported issues and laying a solid foundation for future features. Two of the new operators are from the Hong Kong Special Duties Unit, while the other operator is a member of the Polish GROM counter-terrorism unit. The update will also introduce several new customization items.

Alt-right members gathered around the statue of Thomas Jefferson chanting "white lives matter". Units of the Virginia National Guard will be placed on stand-by, he added.
More information will be announced at Gamescom, where Rainbow Six Siege will be having its Pro League Finals. The three new operators need to be unlocked with in-game currency, which is standard for the release of new operators in the game. There has been no official confirmation from Ubisoft but a similar location was seen briefly, and probably unintentionally, on the Rainbow Six Siege online tactical board.
The large setting is likely to be loosely based on the Ocean Park water park, which is just south of Hong Kong, and is the largest amusement park in the city. That said, more will be revealed the Pro League finals on August 26, including a live demo of the map.
