It's been a long road for Rainbow Six Siege, but it's finally crossed one of the most prestigious milestones in the world of competitive online multiplayer gaming: 20 million. As per the company, the game has now reached the 20 million mark in terms of registered players.
Siege had a fair bit of problems when it launched, but Ubisoft has continued to release new content and update the game since then, including the recent Operation Health, created to improve the multiplayer so as to ensure the long-term success of the game.
Siege has been undergoing a period of long-term fixes and upgrades to "improve the overall experience", courtesy of the Operation Health initiative.More news: Chester Bennington Memorial Items Yanked from eBay

"Our community is growing and so is our ambition to make Siege a shooter that is here to stay", said Nicolas Lefebvre, Product Director. The team has most recently conducted public technical tests to gather information on new servers that will help improve match stability.
Furthermore, Season Three will bring with it two new Operators from the Hong Kong-based Special Duties Unit, one from Poland's Grupa Reagowania, a new map and a range of new weapons. While they didn't give out any specific numbers, the game is now the second most played title on Xbox One.
