The Rainbow Six Siege 1.94 update patch notes are now here, detailing the new changes to the game. The Y5S3.1 update for today, September 23, is described as being “primarily a backlog of bug fixes from the TS that did not make it in time for the season update.” Therefore, it should be expected that the new Rainbow Six Siege update will be mostly targeting pesky bugs in need of a thorough squashing. The new patch is now rolling out across PC, PS4, and Xbox One, so expect to see it download and install soon. (Remember, you can hit “Check for update” to force the download as soon as it drops.)

In this update we will be removing the vote-to-kick feature from Quick Match (vote-to-kick was previously only available in Quick Match.)
We’ve been monitoring the use of vote-to-kick for the last seasons and have confirmed that it is indeed a highly abused feature used as a disruption tool and that it is considered by most to be a pain point in this playlist. Considering that it brings more tension to Quick Match, we decided to turn it off.
