There are speculations that this year, three more downloadable contents (DLCs) for "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" are coming out to surprise fans following the success of Operation Black Ice that was released in December last year. It is expected that the next DLC is set to be released on the second quarter of this year.

Ubisoft has announced a few months back during the Ubisoft Investor Day that there would be four DLCs to come for "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" in 2016. Each expansion will come with one new map and two characters known as "operators." On this second quarter, the upcoming DLC will be U.S.-themed. It will then be followed by a Brazil-based theme in the third quarter, and a Japan-based theme in the last quarter of 2016.

The first DLC, Operation Black Ice, was released early February 2016 with a Canada-based theme. It includes new guns, new weapon skins, and two new operators, plus an introduction of a spectator camera. GameSpot released a review of this DLC and scored the game 8/10.

Ubisoft blogged about the company's commitment to treat the game as a "service."

"Our vision was not a game that you'd play through and "beat," but something you'd regularly come back to," the company wrote. "In order to do that, we'll be actively supporting 'Rainbow Six Siege' with gameplay balancing and tweaks (plus detailed patch notes), events and competitions, and four major content releases with no paywall on gameplay content."

"Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" is a first-person shooter game where players take the role of an operator for a counter-terrorist group. The video game is developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft.

As for the upcoming DLC expansions, Ubisoft has not yet given any specific details about it. However, GameSpot shared what the developer announced during the Ubisoft Investor's Day through a slideshow.
