Brand Director Alexandre Remy said of the milestone;
On behalf of the entire team, we wanted to thank every member of our diverse, global community for their support of our game. Our players are the most valuable element to our game.
Over the last three years we have endeavoured to create a solid community built on transparency as we grow and evolve the ever-expanding world of Rainbow Six Siege.
We are so tremendously honoured to achieve this milestone, and we will continue to do everything we can to earn each and every new person that decides to play.
