This even went on to spawn a whole new game in the Rainbow Six Siege franchise that is still in development. The year also introduced many new operators into the ranks of the game, including the first shield-based defender. This year was unique in that it introduced a whole host of new cinematics and expanded the in-game lore in a way that hadn't been done before in the game. This paved the way for the later years and their invitational storylines. On top of all this great content, we got a new map called Fortress and a re-work of the pathfinder map Hereford Base. Below you can find out more about this pivotal year in the game's history and the rainbow six siege voice actors that helped make it a reality.

Year five encompassed 2020 and kept many people occupied with the onset on COVID-19. The year, while not having as many new operators, focused on an overhaul of the game's pre-new map pools to optimize their functionality.

We still got a range of interesting characters and even the famous Sam Fisher aka Splinter Cell joined the ranks under the name of Zero. You can learn more about the rainbow six siege voice actors behind the new characters and familiar characters below.
