Back at E3, Ubisoft gave us a small teaser for the next Rainbow Six game, titled ‘Rainbow Six Quarantine’. This is essentially a fully fleshed out, standalone version of the limited time ‘Outbreak’ mode from Rainbow Six Siege, focusing on PvE co-op in a fight for survival. At the time, the release window was very vague, but Ubisoft has narrowed things down a bit.
Normally we expect ‘early 2020’ to mean Q1 but in Ubisoft’s July earnings call with investors, the publisher confirmed that Quarantine is set to release before the 31st of March. So that gives us an official three-month window to expect the game in.
Rainbow Six Siege has been one of the best multiplayer shooters in recent years, albeit with a few hiccups along the way. With Quarantine, Ubisoft wants to build off of the success of Siege and create a separate PvE game to appeal to a wider player base.
An early access beta test is supposed to take place at some point too, so hopefully we’ll hear a bit more about that before the end of the year.
KitGuru Says: Rainbow Six Quarantine is likely going to be good, although I am still having trouble picturing it as a full standalone game, rather than a mode for Siege. That said, we have very few details on the game at this point and we have yet to see gameplay, so there is still plenty to learn in the coming months. Do many of you still play Rainbow Six Siege? Are you interested in Quarantine as a standalone game?
