The new patch for Rainbow Six: Siege is probably best avoided for now, as there are reports that it’s bricking entire PlayStation 4 consoles. While the severity of the problems range from simple crashes all the way through to wiped hard drives, we’d recommend giving Y2S3.1 a wide berth until things are fixed.
It all seems to occur when accessing your friends list from within the game: “Players have reported a crashing issue regarding the party invitation,” a Ubisoft spokesperson said. “We are cooperating with Sony on this issue and would advise you to not use this feature until a resolution is found.”
It’s probably time to take an enforced break from the tactical first-person shooter, then.
