If you’ve been looking forward to the announcement of the next Rainbow Six Siege operation, you won’t have to wait much longer.

The new season will be revealed on Nov. 8 at 11am CT before the grand finals of the EU Mini-Major, Ubisoft recently announced.

The teams participating in the EU Mini-Major include Team Empire, Tempra Esports, Virtus Pro, and Team BDS. BDS are the reigning champions of the EU Mini-Major in August. They came from the lower bracket and beat G2 in a 3-2 upset victory.

It’s common for new operation announcements to center around Rainbow Six esports events. The current operation, Shadow Legacy, was announced during the NA August Mini-Major grand finals.

The upcoming reveal is set to occur right before the final two teams face off in a best-of-five match and will last approximately 30 minutes. A first-place finish in the online competition nets the victors $62,500, a slick trophy, and bragging rights as the best team in their region.
