Rainbow Six Quarantine may soon receive new information, as well as a title change for Rainbow Six Parasite to stand out from Covid-19.
Rainbow Six Quarantine will probably be renamed to Rainbow Six Parasite very soon. A new update from PlayStation Network says something regarding Ubisoft’s shooter is coming soon, as the studio may be gearing up for a release.
Rainbow Six Quarantine is a new co-op shooter from Ubisoft and was slated for release in 2020. The title experienced production issues when developers were forced to start working from home. The game has very limited details at the moment, but it looks like a new direction for the rainbow six franchise. Coming hot from the heels of Rainbow Six Siege, the game will place players in a world where aliens have become a major threat. The game will also build on the gameplay base of Seat and present various operators of this title. Other than that, there really aren’t any other details.

On reflection, Ubisoft also apparently chose to change the title of the game to Rainbow Six Parasite distance itself from the Covid-19 pandemic. The game is slated to launch in Ubisoft’s 2021/22 fiscal year, which means it will release between April 2021 and March 2022. Since a new title update has also moved to the PlayStation Network with new artwork for the game (via MP1st), it is possible that Ubisoft will release the game soon or announce some kind of beta testing period.
A recent store listing showed a March release date for the game, but Ubisoft said it was nothing more than a mistake. Ubisoft may have just slipped and revealed this information ahead of an official announcement, but it’s too early to tell. It would be interesting to see Ubisoft reveal the game again and release it quickly, which would take away much of the wait for this enigmatic title. The studio recently delayed Far Cry 6 from its early 2021 release window, so it could be a good game to replace it.
It’s highly likely that Ubisoft will be in more detail on the game by the next virtual E3 (or another summer digital press conference). Given the circumstances, it’s probably a good thing that Ubisoft chooses to distance itself from a rather depressing concept such as quarantine. Many have had to stay locked inside for about a year now, with very little to do outside of watching movies and playing video games. With reports that the new rainbow six will be a national adventure, it’s hard to imagine that the game actually features a substantial quarantine like the one fans have been living with for a year now.
