Rainbow Six Quarantine may feel like it was revealed eons ago and somewhat out of place in the current state of the world, but as far as we know it's still on the cards over at Ubisoft. We've not heard anything from the developers behind this game created as an extension of a Rainbow Six Siege limited-time mode, but we do know when the supposed Rainbow Six Quarantine release date is meant to be and more.

Rainbow Six Quarantine release date

An official Rainbow Six Quarantine release date hasn't been confirmed yet but in a Ubisoft financial call, CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that the game will be released before the end of the current fiscal year. This runs until April 1, 2021, so unfortunately doesn't narrow it down particularly. Storefronts such as the Epic Games Store and UPlay list the release date as simply "2020" though, so here's hoping it's a holiday launch.

Rainbow Six Quarantine beta

If you just can't wait to play the game because it's already won game of the year in your heart, you can head to the official Rainbow Six Quarantine site to "register for updates and the chance to play early". Don't get us wrong; that's not official confirmation of a Rainbow Six Quarantine beta, but if there is one announced, you're going to want to be signed up.

Rainbow Six Quarantine trailers

We're likely still some ways off from seeing gameplay for Rainbow Six Quarantine, but we do have the reveal trailer to work with. It's a minute and a half of a bloke cowering in a laundry room holding a pistol, while an alien searches for him outside and some creepy black goo spreads down his arm. He's eventually found by his team though, and it cuts to the Rainbow Six Quarantine logo. Cinematic trailers aren't an indication whatsoever of how a game will play, but it definitely sets the atmosphere. As soon as we see more (Gamescom?) we'll update this guide.
