As per Ubisoft
's latest financial earnings call the publisher noted that the still in development Rainbow Six Quarantine
was on track for a 2021 release. Although we haven't seen any sort of gameplay from it, it's set in the future and deals with a "highly lethal new breed of mutated alien parasite".
A statement from Ubisfot notes (via PCGamesN
), "While we recently shared that we will be changing the name of Rainbow Six Quarantine, ‘Parasite’ is only a placeholder that our internal teams use." With more info coming soon.
With the current climate and the global pandemic, naturally having a game with the word Quarantine in the title might not be the best of ideas. Especially if it's future-set sci-fi -- and on that front publication MP1ST
has discovered a new logo on the PlayStation Network with the title now being Rainbow Six Parasite.
Unlike Rainbow Six Siege, Parasite is set to be a three-player co-op affair more along the lines of Left 4 Dead than the competitive tactics of Siege. Though being Rainbow Six no doubt tactics will play a role. Interestingly the PlayStation Network scrape indicates that the game is already at Version 1.01 with a "launch patch" seemingly ready. Odds are we're going to be siing and hearing a lot about Rainbow Six Parasite soon.
