Ubisoft has today confirmed through an investor earnings call, via VGC, that both Rainbow Six Quarantine and Far Cry 6 are still on track to be released within the first half of Ubisoft’s 2021 fiscal year.
While Far Cry 6 was a bit of a shoo-in, Rainbow Six Quarantine hitting before September 2021 might come as a bit of a surprise given we’ve not seen anything of the game since it’s original reveal almost two years ago.
First revealed at E3 2019, Rainbow Six Quarantine takes place several years into the future of the Rainbow Six universe and sees operators teaming up to combat a mutant, alien parasite. It’s playable co-operatively in squads of 3. Presumably, there is only a PvE element so far, though that might change. It’s being developed by a new team within Ubisoft Montreal,
During the investor call, Ubisoft was also asked whether there were any PR concerns on releasing a game about a deadly outbreak given what’s going on in the world today. On that note, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that “….as it’s named today, it is something we are evaluating and we will see what comes in the future on that product“.
They also announced that Rainbow Six Siege has surpassed 70 million players, having added 15 million alone in the past twelve months.
