Ubisoft reconsidering Rainbow Six Quarantine title because, well, you know why (UPDATE)Platforms: All
Following a data mining reveal, Ubisoft explained they were now using a placeholder title of 'Rainbow Six Parasite' in place of Quarantine.
They emphasised to EuroGamer, who reported on the data mining finds, that this title was strictly for internal use and would not be the published title of the new Siege spin-off.
Ubisoft is now having second thoughts about releasing their horror-themed Rainbow Six spin-off, Rainbow Six Quarantine, under that title in 2021. For obvious reasons.
During an investors Q&A, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot was asked whether the company is considering a name change in light of the current pandemic. While Guillemot did not give a definitive answer, he did say they are "evaluating" the title of the game. So, while it is not set in stone, do not be surprised in there is a name-change soon.
The squad-based tactical first-person shooter (something of a mash-up of Rainbow Six and Left 4 Dead) that currently goes by the name Rainbow Six Quarantine is based on a very successful Halloween event in the base game called Outbreak. Also, probably, a poor name choice right now.
Rainbow Six Quarantine has no release date, but Ubisoft claims they are planning to launch it during the 2021/2022 fiscal year, which translates in poor people time to April 2021 to March 2022.
