The same report notes that test servers for upcoming gameplay seasons normally run for two to three weeks before its actual release.

‘Rainbow Six Siege: Ember Rise’ gameplay: Who are the new Operators?
While fans still need to guess about the release date of “Rainbow Six Siege: Ember Rise,” they already have an idea what to expect about its gameplay contents. Per tradition, it will introduce two new Operators named Amaru and Goyo who hails from Peru and Mexico, respectively.
Amaru will be known for her Garra Hook ability that makes her extremely useful when attacking enemies elevated areas by surprise. Based on the early “Rainbow Six Siege: Ember Rise” previews, Amaru’s skill takes a very short time for her to grapple and hoist herself up to target locations leaving the opponents not enough time to escape.
Goyo, on the other hand, is big on explosives. The “Rainbow Six Siege: Ember Rise” Operator’s unique ability is called the Volcan Shield, and the name pretty much explains what it does. He is equipped with a special Deployable Shield where he can also attach an incendiary bomb. It could be an effective trick making enemies think the shield is simply for cover while Goyo awaits to detonate the explosives.
