Ubisoft have revealed some additional details about their upcoming shooter Rainbow Six Quarantine. The game is finally set to launch this year but under a different name.

Ubisoft's long-awaited and delayed shooter Rainbow Six Quarantine may got a different name, Ubisoft have confirmed. The company talked about the game during their earnings call, where they revealed that Rainbow Six Quarantine is finally launching this year, but there's a big chance it won't keep its name - Quarantine.

When asked if the name of the game is a concern for the publisher, since releasing a product with a title "quarantine" during the pandemic may be insensitive, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that Ubisoft are evaluating the name and will see what comes in the future. 

On Rainbow Six: Quarantine, we are creating a product that is actually – as it’s named today – it is something we are evaluating and we'll see what comes in the future on that product," Guillemot said in response.

This response certainly suggests that Ubisoft will look at their options and decide whether the change is necessary. We doubt the name will stay, a new moniker is probably for the best, especially since Ubisoft are yet to start with a big marketing campaign for the game. 

In case you are not familiar with Rainbow Six Quarantine, it's a squad-based survival first-person shooter developed by a new team within Ubisoft Montreal. It's set several years in the future of the Rainbow Six universe and it sees players team up to combat a mutated alien parasite.
