In what is the third time during the game’s lifespan, Ubisoft’s incredibly popular first-person tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege will once again be changing game directors. The announcement comes via an official community update posted on Ubisoft’s official website.

Leroy Athanassoff, the current director for Rainbow Six Seige, will be departing this role in favour of greener pastures within the Ubisoft ecosystem. Athanassoff has served as a game director for Seige for over two years now, although soon Alexander Karpasiz will be stepping up to fill those shoes. Karpasis – who has credits on games such as Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Watch Dogs, and Far Cry 5 – says that the upcoming Year 7 will be the most ambitious years in the history of the game.

“My journey with Siege started all the way back when the project was in its Alpha. I joined some friends and competed in Siege’s first internal tournament where we made it to the finals. Even in the early stages of the game I knew there was something special about Siege, but at the time I had no idea how profound of an impact it would have on my life. Fast-forward to the present: I’ve spent the last four years working with an incredible team of people, on one of the most successful competitive shooters in the world. The next step of that journey starts today, and I couldn’t be more excited about the future of Siege,” Karpasiz said.

Rainbow Six Siege has been a smash hit for Ubisoft. Its successor, Rainbow Six Extraction, is set to release this month- read more about that through here.
