The Rainbow Six quarantine is currently only scheduled for release in Ubisoft’s fiscal year 2021-22 (April 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022) after it was officially delayed, along with Far Cry 6, last October. Some had taken the date of Ubisoft Connect to mean that the launch of the game was quietly pushed forward, but, unfortunately, this is not the case.
First announced at E3 2019, Quarantine is separated from Rainbow Six Siege and the especially popular Outbreak event for a limited time. The 3-player PvE game will see squads of operators take on the creations of a deadly new parasite, using FPS reflexes and tactics to survive.
The game was originally scheduled for early 2020, but there were two delays, one in late 2019 and another in 2020. The latest delay was directly related to workflow issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The name and its associations are probably not very helpful at this time either.
Along with quarantine and Far Cry 6, Ubisoft already has a Star Wars game in development at Ubisoft Massive, which will be the beginning of a “long-term collaboration” between the French developer-publisher and Disney.
