[2018-06-08] Season 8 Update

Season 8 Pro League Kicks off on June 18th!

08/06/2018 12:00 PM

As we’ve announced in previous articles, Season 8 of Rainbow Six Pro League was due to kick-off next week on Monday, June 11th. However, due to a technical issue in our latest patch, the first week of Pro League will be pushed back until the week of June 18th, with more details to come next week. Our teams are dedicated to giving fans and players the best Pro League experience possible, and we feel like delaying the start of the season for the integrity of the matches is the best decision for the league.


We will also be pushing back the first day of stage one the Six Major Qualifiers to Thursday, June 14th. For more information on the qualifiers, visit our latest article.


This season marks the beginning of many changes for the Pro League, all of which were discussed in our latest blog post and dev diary. As a quick reminder, matches are now a best of one, and each team will play every other team every week on a rotating map pool of five maps. The new operator pick and ban system has been implemented, and we have added an additional defensive bombsite to the rotation.
