Rainbow Six Quarantine Has A New Name - But It's Not Parasite

Rainbow Six Quarantine Has A New Name - But It's Not Parasite

As Ubisoft prepares to chart a new era of the Rainbow Six franchise, the unfortunately named Rainbow Six Quarantine is about to change its title. With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic gripping the gaming world and beyond, Ubisoft has decided it's best to change the next R6's name from Quarantine. The Rainbow Six series has been ticking along nicely since 1998, and following the success of Rainbow Six Siege in 2015, it's finally time to deliver the next chapter. 

News that Ubisoft was changing the name picked up a lot of buzz online, which was only added to when MP1 showed off artwork that seemingly confirmed the game's new title. The image featured the previously revealed protagonist called Ela, caught in black goop that looks like it wouldn't be out of place in a Venom movie. This was set against a backdrop featuring the name Rainbow Six Parasite. It was all very believable, but according to Ubisoft, this is only a placeholder and not the finished product.

 

What is the new Rainbow Six name?

Speaking to Eurogamer, an Ubisoft spokesperson explained, "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. Recently, we ran an internal test for the game and some of its details became public. We can confirm this is a glimpse of the upcoming game, and we will share more details, including the official name, soon". 

Things have been a little slow on the R6 front as the Siege esports scene has continued to flourish. It's hard to believe we've had so little development, especially considering Quarantine was announced back in 2019. We know it's been delayed into the "first half of 2021", but apart from that, details are sketchy - to say the least. We know Ubisoft is moving ahead, thanks to a file for the game being uploaded to the PlayStation Network. The game version is cited as 1.01 and "Initial launch patch". Unfortunately, there's no date on when the game will be released.

 

Will Parasite be the new Rainbow Six name?

Just because Ubisoft has debunked the name for now, that doesn't mean Parasite won't be the final choice. The next game will be co-op spin on Rainbow Six Siege's fan-favourite "Outbreak Mode". The game's description reads as follows: "Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine™ is a 3-player squad-based survival FPS being developed by an entirely new team at Ubisoft Montreal. The Rainbow Six operators will face off against a mysterious threat infecting human hosts and their surroundings.  Prepare to launch into tense, chaotic, and totally unpredictable missions as you and your squad risk everything every time you step into quarantine". 

Even though we're moving away from Quarantine, a name like Parasite fits with the theme of the threat "infecting human hosts". We might be missing out on Six Invitational in 2021 thanks to COVID-19, but that won't stop Ubisoft. The Rainbow Six Siege Community and Siege Celebration is coming on February 21 and will give players their first look at what to expect in Year 6. Given that the developer has teased we'll get details on the next full game soon, the celebration sounds like the perfect time to announce the revamped version of Quarantine and what it will be called.
