(Ubisoft)Tom Clancy's "Rainbow Six Siege"

Fans of "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" were pleased with the first DLC that was released for the game, "Operation Black Ice," which centered on the neighboring country of Canada. Now, everyone is turning their heads to the second DLC that will reportedly be released this year.

According to GameSpot, Ubisoft announced at its annual Investor Day presentation that three more DLCs are coming to the game, bringing the total to four. The second DLC will concentrate on the United States, the third on Brazil, and the fourth on Japan. However, the company did not reveal the names of these respective DLCs as well as their release dates. It was only disclosed that the second DLC will be released sometime in Q2, the third in Q3, and the fourth in Q4.

Because of the secrecy and anticipation, rumors about the exact release date of the upcoming U.S.-based DLC have been flying around online.

Some observant fans have reportedly figured out the exact date of the DLC's release—April 14. They came to this conclusion based on several calendars that were shown throughout the game's maps. It would seem that April 14 was marked on all of the calendars, which led gamers to believe that this was Ubisoft's way of revealing the DLC's release date.

As for the content of the upcoming U.S. DLC, very little is known at the moment. However, since the previous DLC, "Operation Black Ice," introduced all-new Operators named Buck and Frost, new weapon skins and guns, it is safe to assume that the upcoming DLC will bring about the same. A new map that revolved around a yacht was also revealed in the Canadian update, so it is likely that the U.S. DLC will come with a new map as well.

"Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" was released in December 2015 and its first DLC, "Operation Black Ice," was rolled out in February. The game is playable on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC.
