At its E3 2019 press conference on Monday, Ubisoft announced Rainbow Six Quarantine, a new spinoff for the Tom Clancy series that appears to be inspired by the popular Outbreak event from Rainbow Six Siege. The game will be released as a stand-alone title.
Outbreak was a limited time event that came to Rainbow Six Siege as part of Operation Chimera in 2018. Set in the town of Truth and Consequences, New Mexico, the Operators of Rainbow Six must contend with an extraterrestrial pandemic.
Quarantine will be a three-player tactical co-op FPS and that tasks teams of operators to work and fight together against the intensifying threat of a technological parasite. The brief teaser did not give any details like the location of the story or any possible new operators.
It is the first Rainbow Six game to come out since the release of the live game Rainbow Six Siege in 2015.
Rainbow Six Quarantine will be released in 2020 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.
