Original Story - Ubisoft Montreal has announced a new update coming to Rainbow Six Siege later today.

Writing on Twitter, the games official account told fans that they would be pushing Patch Y6S1.1. For the time being the update is only planned to release on PC, with console players having to wait a little longer. Although it's promising it is "coming soon™".

Ubisoft plans to launch the update at 9am ET, which is 1pm UTC.

The size of the update hasn't been mentioned, but given this is the first after the games most recent new season launch, its likely to be a biggy.

According to the devs, the update will bring with it "a number of fixes you've been asking for".

Full patch notes haven't been shared just yet, but with the update set to arrive in a few hours, it won't be long until we know the full extent of the changes.

For the time being the developer has given fans a small tease of what to expect, which is listed just below. We'll be sure to update this page further as full patch notes are released.

Developer Comment - 

The developer also added a few more details on the change to the games MMR cap: 

"It's come to our attention that the change to MMR cap (from 1000 to 700) didn't appear in Patch Notes, so we wanted to explain our reasoning for it. We want your Ranked experience to be as balanced as possible, so that means occasionally tweaking the values to find a sweet spot."

"According to our data, this change reduces the skill gap between teams while having the least chance of limiting potential squads. We will continue to monitor this balance and adjust as necessary."
