Ubisoft Forward starts E3 2021 with Rainbow Six Quarantine, Far Cry 6


Ubisoft’s E3 showcase, spotlighting new games Rainbow Six Quarantine and Far Cry 6, kicks off a week of E3 presentations on Saturday, June 12, at 3 p.m. EDT.

Far Cry 6 has already gotten a preview event, but very little has been revealed for Quarantine, which will be the first mainline game in the Rainbow Six franchise since 2008’s Rainbow Six: Vegas 2. 2015’s Rainbow Six Siege, although very popular and strongly profitable, particularly as an esports title, is a multiplayer-only variation on the Rainbow Six brand of tactical assault.

Quarantine was announced at E3 2019 and the game was twice delayed from its original 2020 launch window. In October, Ubisoft told investors that Quarantine would launch in the fiscal year spanning 2021-2022, which ends next March.

Ubisoft’s announcement on Thursday also name-checked live service games like For Honor (2017), Trackmania, (2020), and The Crew 2 (2018). Watch Dogs: Legion, whose premium expansion, Bloodline, is due to launch by the end of the month, will also get a close-up.

Ubisoft Forward will have a one-hour pre-show at 2 p.m. EDT preceding the event’s kickoff at noon on June 12. Following Ubisoft Forward, Rainbow Six Siege’s community managers will hold a briefing at 4 p.m. EDT.

Ubisoft’s official site will carry the streams with subtitles in 12 languages as well as American Sign Language. It will also be available through Ubisoft’s other channels on Twitch and YouTube.
