Upcoming co-op zombie shooter Rainbow Six Quarantine will launch before April.
In an investor call, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed the game would launch sometime before the end of this fiscal year. We already know Rainbow Six Quarantine won't be coming out this year, so that puts the release date in January, February, or March 2020. As PC Gamer points out, two other Ubisoft games are due out early next year: Gods & Monsters in February and Watch Dogs Legion in March. With that in mind, expect Ubisoft to launch Rainbow Six Quarantine in late January or early February.
According to Game Informer, Guillemot said that Rainbow Six Quarantine would feature "the proven gameplay of Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak". This was a timed event introduced as part of the game's Operation Chimera expansion. It saw players fending off infected hordes across a number of semi-linear maps. In Outbreak, the enemies were decidedly alien, while they seem to have taken on a more traditional zombie-like appearance for Quarantine. Details are still pretty thin on the ground regarding gameplay, so we'll bring you more as we get it. In the meantime, you can refresh your memory with the E3 2019 announce trailer:
In the trailer, we see two of Rainbow Six Siege's defenders, Ela and Vigil. There are also a number of returning mechanics from Siege including environmental destruction, similar gunplay, and the use of gadgets. The trailer is more of a mood piece than an actual setup, so we're not sure about plot details or where Quarantine fits in with the wider Rainbow Six universe. We'll likely get more details between now and the game's 2020 release. When it does land, you'll be able to play Rainbow Six Quarantine on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
