The imminent return of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine looks increasingly likely, with Ubisoft’s upcoming July digital event expected to end one year of silence. The mysterious cooperative spin-off saw its debut at E3 2019, promising a three-player, squad-based experience, building on the foundations of Rainbow Six Siege. And while Ubisoft remains tight on details, the backdrop of parasite sweeping the nation expands on Siege’s Outbreak event from early 2018.
While details on Rainbow Six Quarantine remain confined to its one-minute teaser trailer, tidbits continue to surface through reputable third-party leaks. The alluded experience stays faithful to Rainbow Six Siege’s strategy, including returning playable Operators, their unique gadgetry, and even the same destructive engine. It also appears Quarantine will revive its rewards system, laced with cosmetic items, and supporting microtransactions.
The dump features various strings seemingly pulled from a pre-release Rainbow Six Quarantine client, referencing the return of weapon skins, weapon charms, headgear, uniforms, and their associated rarity tiers. These four cosmetic categories previously shaped Rainbow Six Siege’s reward systems, allowing players to craft identities through the items they collect. Multiple charms also reference “MTX,” a common internal abbreviation for microtransaction-geared content at Ubisoft.
