Are The Siege Servers Down?
The Rainbow Six Siege servers are currently online, last checked on April 19th at 12:49 pm UTC.
The last scheduled server downtime was on April 11th, coinciding with the release of the Y8S1.2 update. The servers went down at 1 pm UTC for up to 90 minutes.
This downtime affected PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Windows versions of the game - all the platforms Rainbow Six Siege is available on.
The update is just over 1GB in size and included the highly anticipated Mousetrap feature for consoles, a competitive measure, which introduced a gradually increasing input lag to those using a mouse and keyboard.
