While Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege lies among Ubisoft’s latest multiplayer hits, Rainbow Six Quarantine explores the world through a new cooperative lens. Briefly teased among the publisher’s E3 lineup in June 2019, the spin-off translates tactical shooter foundations into squad-based player-versus-environment gameplay.
Rainbow Six Quarantine expands on the grounds of Rainbow Six Siege’s Outbreak mode, which offered the first divergence from competitive roots as a limited-time event. Developed under a standalone team at Ubisoft Montreal, the title capitalizes on record success for the Rainbow Six brand, currently on track for a 2020 release.
But details remain scarce on Rainbow Six Quarantine, with only a brief teaser trailer, promising familiar combat and gadgetry to its best-selling multiplayer sandbox. A newly-surfaced leak provides alleged details on those core gameplay philosophies, and an overview of returning Operators, missions, locations, weapons, and more.

As Ubisoft’s initial trailer suggests, Rainbow Six Quarantine will revive a roster of select playable Operators from Rainbow Six Siege. The leak indicates attackers and defenders unite under one team, now divided into three classes, titled “Assault,” “Recon,” and “Support.”
Infected Outbreak enemies also return, naming the Grunt, Breacher, Rooter, Smasher, and Apex, all first showcased under the Outbreak event. Three new infected forms appear to feature, split across four defined tiers.

The leak packs a ton of other tidbits supposedly related to Rainbow Six Quarantine, including a new per-Operator progression system, the return of Rainbow Six Siege’s broad cosmetics system, and various weapons planned across loadouts.
As with any unconfirmed source, take leaks with a pinch of salt, especially given the early nature of Rainbow Six Quarantine. However, with little information from Ubisoft, and a convincing pamphlet packed with feasible details, this could be our first glimpse of plans for the cooperative shooter. It wouldn’t be the first Ubisoft leak from physical promotional materials, either.
Rainbow Six Quarantine is expected to hit Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, scheduled for sometime in 2020.
