Game company Ubisoft has announced that popular video game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be coming to next-gen consoles next month.
The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of the game will be launched on December 1. It will feature 4K gameplay and up to 120fps, depending on the mode chosen by the players (performance or resolution), among many other improvements. They can upgrade their version to the same family of devices for free. More than five years after its original release, this launch on next-gen consoles is a big milestone for the franchise.

Cross-play between different families of consoles or between PC and consoles is not currently supported.
