The PS5 and Xbox Series X versions will allow gameplay in 4K and up to 120fps, depending on the mode selected by players (performance or resolution), while the Xbox Series S version will offer 1080p gameplay.
Current-gen console players will receive the next-gen versions as a free update, Ubisoft said, and players will keep their progression and in-game content. The game will be cross-generation, meaning next-gen players will be able to play with current-gen players on the same family of devices.
The next-gen versions of the game also promise improved accessibility (readability options, text to speech and speech to text), and a streamlined login and intro sequence to get players into the action faster.
Rainbow Six Siege has amassed over 65 million registered players since releasing in December 2015, according to Ubisoft.
