Rainbow Six Siege came out in 2015, but the competitive shooter has received continued support from developer Ubisoft since its launch. With numerous seasonal updates released each year, Rainbow Six Siege has received new operators, reworks, and maps, with more to be added with Operation North Star confirmed.
Operation North Star will be the second season of Rainbow Six Siege’s Year 6 roadmap, with two more already planned for release later this year. At the beginning of Year 6, which launched with Rainbow Six Siege Operation Crimson Heist, Ubisoft released a short roadmap that g ave fans a glimpse of what they could expect to see released during the year.
The roadmap did not provide much information, but announced that the operator for Operation North Star would be from the Nakoda Nation. The Nakoda are indigenous peoples originating in Canada and the United States, but currently living in western Canada. Ubisoft’s event confirmation provides little additional information, but Rainbow Six Siege is often subject to leaks that lead to the reveal of new content. Operation Rainbow Six Siege North Star has proven to be no different, as details of the season already started leaking last month.

So far, the leaks have mostly focused on information about the new carrier, stating that it will be a proponent under the codename Thunderbird. They will be a three-speed character equipped with a SPAS-15 or Spear .308 primary, Q-919 or Bearing-9, and impact or C4 grenades. The leaks haven’t said anything about what the operator’s unique ability will be, so players will just have to wait until the official reveal to find out more. Rainbow Six Seige set new simultaneous player records with the launch of its previous operation, so Operation North Star will undoubtedly draw quite a crowd as well.
An official release window for the Operation North Star release has not been revealed, but since Rainbow Six Siege seasons generally last a little over three months each, it should arrive in early June. The announcement comes after some of the game’s players and content creators began asking players to boycott Rainbow Six Siege for what they claim is a rampant problem by cheaters and hackers. Ubisoft has yet to respond to the boycott or offer any updates on the situation. Hopefully, fans will still be able to enjoy Operation North Star when it launches soon.
