Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine will not be released on March 21, despite Ubisoft’s own Connect service listing that release date. Fans noticed that the Ubisoft Connect website had begun listing the game for PS4, Xbox One and PC release on March 21, 2021 (screenshot below). However, an Ubisoft spokesperson confirmed to IGN that this date is incorrect. It’s not clear what has caused the error. Rainbow Six Quarantine is currently slated only for a release in Ubisoft’s 2021-22 financial year (from April 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022), after being formally delayed, along with Far Cry 6, in October last year. Some had taken the Ubisoft Connect date to mean that the game’s release had been quietly pushed forward but, sadly, it’s not to be. First announced at E3 2019, Quarantine is a spin-off from Rainbow Six Siege, and particularly its popular Outbreak limited-time event. The 3-player PvE game will see squads of operators taking on the creations of a deadly new parasite, using FPS reflexes and tactics to survive.
The game was initially scheduled for Early 2020, but has seen two delays, one in late 2019, and another in 2020. The most recent delay was tied directly to the workflow issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The name, and its associations, probably aren’t a huge help at this moment, either.
Along with Quarantine and Far Cry 6, Ubisoft now also 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.
