Ubisoft's leaky pipes have still not been plugged apparently as Rainbow Six Siege's new operators, Nøkk and Warden, are already revealed for the most part. Both operators' gadgets and full loadouts have been leaked ahead of the reveal.

Ubisoft messed up and actually leaked the full reveals ahead of the Pro League Finals on 19 May 2019 by releasing the new operators on the test server. Even though Operation Phantom Sight's operators were in the build, they were not playable but their menus revealed a ton of information.

Warden will be a one-speed three-armour defender, hailing from the US Secret Service. His gadget will be Glance Smart Glasses that improve his vision in smoke while standing still. He can activate the glasses for temporary protection from flash grenades. The tooltip specifically states they protect from blindness, so expect ear ringing to persist regardless.

When it comes to Warden's loadouts, he can pick between M590A1 shotgun or the notoriously weak MPX. Warden's secondaries will be either a P-10C or an SMG-12 which is a bit odd as he's a US operator that shares loadouts with British and Korean colleagues, rather than with Seals or FBI. His generic gadgets will include a deployable shield and barbed wire.

Nøkk will be a two-speed two-armour operator, despite the initial thoughts that she could join the speedy club. Her gadget is HEL Presence Reduction, that will wipe her image from cameras, much like Vigil's gadget. It will also make her more silent but there are some exceptions.

FMG-9 and SIX12-SD will be Nøkk's primary weapons, accompanied by D50 and 5.7 sidearms. Apparently, Nøkk will be able to scare enemies in more ways than one as her generic gadgets include Claymores she can place while creeping around.

The other generic gadget she can have is the Breach Charge, making her one of the prefered picks when the need for additional doors arises.

Now it only remains to be seen what Ubisoft still have to reveal about these two operators when the time comes for the finals. Maybe we will get to see some gameplay, that is the only thing that didn't leak so far.
