Ubisoft has confirmed a brand new Rainbow Six game as part of its E3 2019 press conference. The new game in question is called Rainbow Six Quarantine, and it looks like it's something of a shake-up to the traditional Rainbow Six gaming experience as a 3-player co-op PvE game that is set to release in 2020.
It's fair to say that Ubisoft did not have the best of luck when it came to game leaks ahead of E3 2019. Not only did Watch Dogs Legion leak ahead of the expo itself, resulting in the game being officially announced perhaps ahead of schedule, but news also leaked of Rainbow Six Quarantine. Ahead of E3, Ubisoft had yet to confirm the existence of the game however.
Thanks to the press conference Rainbow Six Quarantine has now been unveiled. The game received a debut trailer along with an explanation of how the title is going to play as a 3-player co-op PvE game, that is due to launch in 2020. A look at Rainbow Six Quarantine's trailer can be found below.
Although Rainbow Six Quarantine sits as a standalone game, it appears to have been inspired by the Outbreak mode from Rainbow Six Siege, which saw players fighting off an extraterrestrial epidemic that was plaguing an area. The temporary event proved extremely popular, which may be why Rainbow Six Quarantine has become a focus of its own game.
Once again, players will team up into groups of three against the threat of this parasitic extraterrestrial life form. Exactly how much will change from the Outbreak mode of Siege remains to be seen, but at the very least it's going to be interesting to see whether splitting it off into its own game means a wider array of content across both Quarantine and Siege.
Rainbow Six Quarantine will also be part of another of the major announcements from E3 2019. Ubisoft revealed that it was entering the world of subscription services with the launch of Uplay+ in September, and reportedly Rainbow Six Quarantine will be a part of that service when it launches in 2020. At the very least, this means that there will hopefully be a decent enough player base enticed to check out Quarantine when it launches.
