RELEASE DATE - When does the next update drop?

Rainbow Six Siege's third season of the year is due to start a lot sooner than you might realise. We've known roughly when to expect the Crystal Guard update for a while now, but Ubisoft only mentioned the date themselves recently.

The Y6S3 update - which includes the Clubhouse Map Changes - is going to drop on September 7th. We don't know the specifics just yet, but we can make an educated guess based on what time the last seasonal update was released by Ubisoft.
