If it feels like years since Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Quarantine was revealed by Ubisoft, that's because it is. Initially unveiled at E3 2019 in June, the game was slated to release in 2020 – and it still has that date on the official site. It's 2021 now though and there's no sign of the Rainbow Six Quarantine release date anywhere on the horizon, so what's going on with it?

Rainbow Six Quarantine release date

While we still don't have an official announcement, Rainbow Six Quarantine was one of the titles delayed by Ubisoft last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This pushed it back to the 2021/22 fiscal year – April 2021 to March 2022 – missing the original release window by quite a margin. Ubisoft Connect has the release date as just "2021", so here's hoping it's out sooner rather than later.

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

Despite the announcement coming 18 months ago, we still haven't seen any Rainbow Six Quarantine gameplay. We do have the reveal trailer to work with though. 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 we'll update this page.
