The new stand-alone game is called Rainbow Six Quarantine and will be the first full game from the Tom Clancy franchise since Siege‘s release back in 2015, though it wasn’t too heavy a hiatus as the developer regularly rolled out new content like maps, game modes, and operators.
In fact, the new title appears to be inspired by one of those very game modes called Outbreak, which formed part of Rainbow Six Siege‘s Operation Chimera last year. Players had to team up and fight off an alien parasite infecting human hosts in the town of Truth and Consequences in New Mexico. Now, Quarantine — a full co-op game — will put players in teams of threes in a PvE fight against swarms of extraterrestrial parasite-infected humans for survival in a similar manner. The game’s lead designer Bio Jade has confirmed that as a Rainbow Six title, the new game definitely has ties to Siege, and eagle-eyed fans will notice that the end of the teaser actually shows Ela and Vigil coming in to save the day, both operators from the huge 2015 hit.
Despite this, currently, Ubisoft hasn’t announced how many or which operators players can choose from, and when or where the game is set, so definitely stay tuned for more news to come. The game is slated for release sometime in 2020 and will be available on Microsoft Xbox One, Sony PlayStation 4, and PC.
