Rainbow 6 developers have revealed all the Operators in development after the release of Oryx and Lana during Operation Void Edge.
Currently, Rainbow six has more than 50 operators each with different abilities to work with.
Each operator holds different abilities, tools and drones.
Recently, Rainbow 6 siege revealed two new operators Lana and Oryx from their under development operators list.
Both of these new operators brought in a new way to work with the drone and break through walls.
Well, according to Alex Karpazis, Art Production Director for Rainbow 6 these operators don’t develop overnight.
Instead, they require a whole lot of brainstorming, team discussion and many other things which can’t be revealed publicly.
“We have like this fridge, and we put a lot of operator ideas in this fridge that isn’t quite ready to join the main roster,” said Karpazis during an interview with Dexerto. “We have quite a few operators in there that I’m super excited about.”
He also mentioned that while creating a new operator they have to keep some measures in mind like how they will fit in the game and etc.
“It’s all about timing whether they fit, do they shake up the meta enough right now, do they compliment something that’s happening in the meta,” he said.
Rainbow 6 Operators revealed for year 5
According to Jean-Baptiste Halle, the game’s lead gameplay designer some operators become outdated after making their way into the game.
“Every time we make a prediction [about an operator’s place in the meta], we’re wrong,” he said. “When we start building the prototype and have everything in mind, we are almost nine months ahead, so it’s super hard to know what will happen.
“When we did Warden, we did him with the intention of countering the smoke-flash meta, and this meta didn’t exist anymore once he came out.”
They revealed that Ubisoft will release 100 operators being the goal till now and according to them they still have a lot of ideas in their fridge to work with.
“Every season, our operator cell works on at least four operator concepts, so they only ship two right now,” said Karpazis. “We put four into the fridge and only pull out two to work on, so we build two operators that we save for later.
“They’re prototyped – we know what we want them to do – but it takes a lot of polish to go from prototype to live.”
According to the developers, Rainbow six will release 6 operators at year 5 and 4 operators are planned for year 6.
