What We Know About Rainbow Six Quarantine

The rumors about Rainbow Six Siege appeared to have begun with veteran game journalist Jason Schreier during the Kotaku Splitscreen Podcast. During the June 5th episode titled “Our E3 2019 Hopes and Predictions,” Schreier commented on something called the Orpheus Project where he states that he heard some “Breath of the Wild comparisons.” However, Schreier later clarified on Twitter stating that it was a “smaller-scoped RPG.”

Following this, video game insider Nibel leaked the name Rainbow Six Quarantine along with the title’s genre. It’s expected to make a reveal during Ubisoft’s E3 press conference this year. Currently, little is known about the actual gameplay, but there’s a good chance it follows the same gameplay and mechanical structure of the Outbreak event.

For the unfamiliar, the Outbreak event saw three players fighting off against hordes of crystallized, infected enemies. Broken up across three missions, users had to both survive and complete a variety of different objectives. Enemies were fast and highly aggressive, boasting some unique variants such as a large, armored foe that only had a few weak points.

It’s possible that Rainbow Six Quarantine follows this Left 4 Dead meets Rainbow Six Siege design. This title certainly has a variety of popular Operators – Siege’s version of heroes – that have a ton of personality. Given how wildly popular Outbreak is will the Siege community, we would be surprised if it strayed too far from the original design. Instead, there’s a better chance that it builds upon the event’s original foundation and expands upon the characters, infected, and central conflict.

Another aspect that would be sorely missed is the destructible environment. This may be the core mechanic that separates Quarantine from other co-op PvE games. Being able to blast your way through a structure or have the infected break through adds a frantic, kinetic aspect to the gameplay.

For now, we will have to wait and see what Ubisoft has up their sleeve during this year’s E3.
