Hey! You! Are you a fan of eSports, particularly those involving Rainbow Six: Siege? If so you’re in luck, as Ubisoft has just revealed a roadmap of the game’s upcoming electronic sporting events.
North-American League Finals: The Canada Division Finals and relegation match will be held online from December 11th to 13th 2020. More details will be shared by the region in the coming weeks for this event as well as updates regarding US Division Finals.
SIX INVITATIONAL 2021: We are thrilled to announce that the fifth edition of the Six Invitational will happen in late February 2021. We have all been longing for a clash of the regions, a truly international tournament to determine which team and region is the best this season. All of us at Ubisoft are excited and hard at work to offer the best experience possible for our pro teams and viewers. The Six Invitational 2021 will gather 20 teams across the 4 main regions of the Rainbow Six Esports circuit, competing offline, in Europe and following strict sanitary safety measures. For safety reasons, there will be no audience on site. As unveiled during the Six Invitational 2020, the competition will now feature 20 teams battling it out to be crowned World Champions. 16 teams will qualify for the Six Invitational 2021 based on their ranking in the Global Points standings, while four additional slots – one per region – will be up for grabs through Open Qualifiers that will be held in December 2020.
RAINBOW SIX WORLD CUP: Announcing the Rainbow Six World Cup last September was an exciting moment for all esports teams here at Ubisoft. This competition will be a unique opportunity for local Rainbow Six communities around the world to share their love, pride and unconditional support to the team that will represent their country or region on the worldwide stage. Considering the uncertainty around the evolution of the pandemic around the world in the coming months, we felt we needed to take a step back and assess what we wanted to offer to the wider Siege family with the World Cup. Looking at learnings from other entertainment industries and considering that the World Cup is an independent layer of competition with no impact on the regular Rainbow Six Esports circuit, we took the difficult decision to postpone the Rainbow Six World Cup to 2022.
Stay tuned for more information pertaining to Ubisoft, Rainbow Six and its eSports leagues.
