Rainbow Six Siege's Six Major Raleigh is already underway with the group stage while the main event will commence on Friday, 16 August 2019. It is also possible we will see some sort of a confirmation for Operation Ember Rise leaks.
Rainbow Six Siege's latest batch of leaks regarding the new Mexican and Peruvian operators got expanded recently as the resident Rainbow leaker, Kormora, confirmed that the new operation will be called Ember Rise.
The name couples well with the previously leaked fire shield gadget that one of the operators will have but another hint is a bit odd. Kormora said that another bit of info they were given was that "Jäger will have some competition in S4", hinting that one of the gadgets may have something to do with projectile denial.
All of this will be cleared up during the next weekend though, as the Six Major finals will play out at the end of the week and Ubisoft confirmed some operation-related reveals will happen during a panel discussing the game's future.
The competition is already underway in its group stage form but the playoffs for the remaining eight teams will commence on 16 August 2019.
Six Major's prize pool is $500.000 and there are 16 teams in total, from four regions - Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia-Pacific.
Europe is represented by G2 Esports, Team Empire, Vodafone Giants, Team Secret and Team forZe.
