Indeed, it seems that Ubisoft decided to revise the name of the upcoming shooter Rainbow Six Quarantine to Rainbow Six Parasite due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This can be seen in images of the boot screen, which now appeared in the PlayStation Network.
One of the titles with which Ubisoft is competing for customers’ favor in the current financial year is the cooperative PvE shooter Rainbow Six Quarantine.
A few days ago, Yves Guillemot, the CEO of the French publisher, already admitted that his company is considering a name change internally, since the name of Rainbow Six Quarantine in times of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects one or the other than might not be felt appropriate. According to recent reports, Ubisoft officials seem to have indeed decided to change the game’s name.
Images of the boot screen and the shooter’s dashboard symbol appeared in the PlayStation Network’s databases, suggesting that Rainbow Six Quarantine was renamed Rainbow Six Parasite. An official confirmation of the name change has not yet been received, but if the worst comes to the worst, it should certainly not be long in coming.
Rainbow Six Quarantine or Rainbow Six Parasite is under development for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5 and, according to official information, the title promises exciting cooperative battles in gloomy and hostile environments.
Different character classes with individual skills and optional goals with which additional rewards can be unlocked should provide the necessary variety. The release date of the title seems to have been leaked but no official confirmation is yet given by the studio.
