While we recently shared that we will be changing the name of Rainbow Six Quarantine, ‘Parasite’ is only a placeholder that our internal teams use. Recently, we ran an internal test for the game and some of its details became public. We can confirm this is a glimpse of the upcoming game, and we will share more details, including the official name, soon.

Rainbow Six Quarantine, announced back in 2019, will be a PvE-focused co-op experience that is built upon Rainbow Six Siege's Outbreak mode.

Rainbow Six Quarantine is being developed by an entirely new team at Ubisoft Montreal that was inspired by the long-standing brand legacy of tactical co-op shooters and the varied cast of operators from Rainbow Six® Siege to develop something that is truly more than the sum of its parts.
Last year’s Outbreak event in Rainbow Six Siege was the spark that ignited passions within this group, and they’ve come back now, a year later, with a truly incendiary vision: a deep, radically re-designed, full game experience.
The Rainbow operators will face off against a totally new breed of mutated alien parasite. Infecting human hosts and their surroundings, this new enemy is more lethal and challenging than ever before.
Prepare to launch into tense, chaotic and totally unpredictable missions as you and your squad risk everything, every time you step into Quarantine.
