To recall, Ubisoft released Rainbow Six Siege back in 2015. Initially, the tactical-shooter couldn’t garner enough popularity among players. Though despite the slow start, the game finally found its mojo last year and now boasts a whopping player base of 15 million. It was the release of four expansion packs in 2016 which introduced new weapons, new maps, and two new operators, that injected a new life into the game and helped it burst onto the booming ESL scene.
