Ubisoft has inadvertently leaked the release date of its next shooter, however, already have denied IGN that this is real. Normally we could say that the French company would be trying to mislead as a last resort, to continue with their surprises in a later event, although this time it was a mistake.
Ubisoft delayed Rainbow Six Quarantine for the second time in October when it admitted that Far Cry 6 and this title would not be ready by the scheduled date. This was the second delay of the shooter that was to arrive in March 2020, but a series of poor financial results pushed the studio to delay several titles.
In October, its release date was changed for the fiscal year between 2021 and 2022, so the title was between April of one year and March of the next. That is why the date leaked today does not make sense, since it placed the game for March 21 of this year, that is, a few days before its official launch window.
The error could be seen for a few hours on the Ubisoft website in the description of the game, many players reported this and some media echoed the rumors. Finally Ubisoft communicated that this was a double error since no date should be shown and the release date was not the real one.
Rainbow Six Quarantine was announced in 2019 as a spin off of Rainbow Six Siege, this is a cooperative and competitive shooter, and the spin off would theoretically only be cooperative. The idea is to combat a parasite that can infect teammates, although the only details revealed are those we can see in a CGI trailer from a couple of years ago.
Rainbow Six Quarantine will arrive between April 2021 and March 2022 and the platforms have not yet been specified.
