Ubisoft has officially unveiled Operation Shifting Tides as the fourth and final season of Rainbow Six: Siege's fourth year.
Although the Operation Shifting Tides announcement involved a brief teaser in which waves are seen crashing against some sort of square platform, the known structure of Rainbow Six Siege's seasons and a handful of leaks from reliable sources, reveal more about the game's fourth season.
Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Shifting Tides Release Date
Keeping in line with previous seasons, Ubisoft didn't provide a release date for Operation Shifting Tides upon announcing it. We can, however, expect the Operation Shifting Tides release date to be revealed closer to the day itself, after Rainbow Six Siege players have had a go at testing the newest season.
More details on Operation Shifting Tides will be revealed on November 10, during the Pro League Finals. If things follow the pattern of prior seasons, Season Four will enter a three-week period of testing afterward, meaning its release date could be December 3. Naturally, this is just speculation at the moment.

Rainbow Six Siege's Operation Shifting Tides will follow a similar template to previous seasons, introducing two new operators, reworking a map and adding a mid-season event, among other things. Season four's operators hail from India and Kenya, fulfilling the attacker and defender roles.
If a recently released gadgets trailer, which you can see below, is anything to go by, the Indian attacker Kali uses the CSRX-300 bolt-action rifle that seems to be a beast when it comes to damage and its ability to penetrate surfaces. The Kenyan defender, Wamai will have a magnet-based gadget capable of intercepting projectiles.
Operation Shifting Tides will also introduce the second iteration of Rainbow Six Siege's Battle Pass, which will feature both free and premium tracks, as is often the case with the model popularized by Fortnite. Season four will also rework the Theme Park map.
