Ubisoft has hinted that it may consider changing the name of Rainbow Six: Quarantine due to the ongoing global pandemic.
During a recent third quarter earnings call this week [thanks IGN], Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated that a name change for the long-awaited and delayed Rainbow Six: Quarantine may be on the cards.
“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,” Guillemot told investors during the earnings call.
However despite the potential name change, Guillemot is apparently still adamant that Rainbow Six: Quarantine will release this year.
Rainbow Six: Quarantine’s most recent delay was due to the impact of COVID-19 and during the earnings call, Ubisoft clarified that Quarantine will release before September 30th 2021.
Rainbow Six: Quarantine is loosely based upon R6: Siege’s limited-time event Outbreak. Quarantine, which is set in the future, tasks three players to work together by entering and surviving a quarantine zone infested with mutated alien parasites.
