French video game company Ubisoft announced a roadmap for its upcoming Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege esports events. By virtue of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all tournaments will not host an audience throughout at least February next year.
The Rainbow Six 2020 esports campaign will be concluded with the Regional Finals 2020 taking place from November through January. While the Latin American League Finals will be held as a LAN event following strict sanitary safety measures, the three remaining regional league finals in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America will be conducted online. The Asia-Pacific Finals will be split into three division finals (North Division, Oceania, and South Asia) and the North American League Finals will be split into the Canada Division finals and the US Division Finals.
The main annual event of the competitive Rainbow Six Siege calendar, the Six Invitational 2021, will be held in late February and mark the first major international tournament in the scene since the previous Six Invitational took place in Montreal in February of this year. The Six Invitational 2021 will host 20 teams from the four main regions of the Rainbow Six esports circuit, which will compete offline without an audience and following strict sanitary safety measures. The event will be held in a to be announced location and venue in Europe.
Ubisoft will release information on the May and August Six Majors 2021 next year.
Furthermore, the company made a statement on the Rainbow Six World Cup, which was announced in September of last year. Because the World Cup is planned as an independent layer of competition with no impact on the regular Rainbow Six esports circuit, Ubisoft decided to postpone the inaugural Rainbow Six World Cup to 2022.
