Earlier today, Ubisoft rolled out a maintenance period for Rainbow Six Siege, and with it, a new patch was deployed! There’s no new content included, however, and there are no official Rainbow Six Siege update 1.73 patch notes other than Ubisoft saying there are no “player-facing changes.” Most likely, the studio rolled out server-side fixes, or even data for an upcoming patch.
