What to offer?

The exponential growth of Rainbow Six Siege
Since the launch of Rainbow Six Siege in December of 2015, there have been eighteen different seasons with unique objectives and modified versions of the game for their audience. Generally, after every season either it would be a new map or rework of an old map, but a minimum of two new operators would be introduced. In this day and age, Siege is in its second season called Operation Steel Wave having a total of 56 operators, which players can choose from either attacking or in defense of it and has different game modes with 20 different maps to play with.
The tactical shooter of Ubisoft won an Australian Award in the category of ‘Esports Title of the Year’. Siege has multiple nominations including evolving game, best multiplayer game, best evolving game, and many more.

Continuing on these lines of thoughts, Rainbow Six Siege is rapidly growing in the esports scene, having its leagues created in Europe, Asia, and North America.
