Rainbow Six Siege Crossplay on Console

PlayStation and Xbox crossplay has finally been added to Siege as part of Operation Solar Raid, with Sony and Microsoft console owners able to play against each other at the end of 2022.

Both console families already support cross-generational lobbies. The console cross-play will continue to support that, meaning PS4 and PS5 players will be united with Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players.

Ubisoft also revealed cross-progression will debut at the same time as console crossplay.

For now, the answer is a firm no. Rainbow Six Mobile only has access to a limited selection of Operators and maps, and the game was basically built from the ground up to be perfectly optimized for the smaller devices.

It’s unlikely we’ll ever see crossplay between Siege on PC / Console and its mobile counterpart.
