During the last meeting, Ubisoft executives said they were still confident that Rainbow Six Quarantine will come out this year. However, the new game could undergo a title change in the running, due to the delicate situation of the last year.
In the call of the financial results yesterdaythe publisher reassured investors that the Rainbow Six Siege spin-off it is still expected by the end of September this year, after a long delay. The game was in fact postponed in autumn 2019 after the Ghost Recon Breakpoint flop, the same fate that befell Watch Dogs: Legion and Immortals Fenyx Rising.
Even in the last period we have seen various postponements of the most anticipated Ubisoft productions, of all Far Cry 6the remake of Prince of Persia: The sands of time (postponed for the second time a few days ago), and precisely Rainbow Six: Quarantine, which still lacks a launch date.
At the moment, however, Ubisoft is not only dealing with the indefinite release date of the game, but also with an unexpected and thorny issue: the title.
In fact, CEO Yves Guillemot confided that, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic of the last year and the lack of delicacy that the term “Quarantine” could communicate, the publisher is seriously considering the idea of change the title of the Rainbow Six: Siege spin-off into something different.
It’s something we’re evaluating and will see what comes next on that product.
During the same call to investors, Ubisoft then announced that Rainbow Six: Siege has passed the milestone of 70 million players, with 12 million arriving in the last 12 months.
