Ubisoft is thinking about changing the title for its upcoming Rainbow Six: Quarantine game. However, they say they will be releasing the game by September 30, 2021.


During an earnings call earlier this week, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot says they might be changing the name of Rainbow Six: Quarantine. When asked regarding the game's name being an issue in today's times, Guillemot says in the call:

“On Rainbow Six: Quarantine, we are creating a product that is actually – as it’s named today – it is something we are evaluating and we'll see what comes in the future on that product.”

This comes after two years since Rainbow Six: Quarantine was first revealed to the public. It was originally slated for the first half of 2020-2021. However, due to the global pandemic, the development of the game stalled. Hence, in October 2020, Ubisoft announced that it will be pushing back the game's release date, along with other titles. Previously, this time period stretched from April 2021 to March 2022. But according to Guillemot, Ubisoft commits to releasing the game before September 30, 2021. Ubisoft gave no exact release date.

In the same earnings call, Ubisoft also revealed future plans regarding their Triple-A titles. Moving forward, Ubisoft will focus less on Triple-A games. Instead, Ubisoft will be using more resources on long-term support for its free-to-play games.

Whatever the new name for the game will be, it seems like the developers will not change anything in terms of its gameplay or themes. Somewhat a callback to Left 4 Dead, this newest Rainbow Six game will feature a team of three players. You and two other buddies will be exploring a quarantine zone, fighting a mutated alien parasite that has been infecting people left and right. For R6 fans, think Outbreak from Rainbow Six: Siege.
