Over the past year, many have pointed out that Ubisoft’s upcoming release of Rainbow Six Quarantine has become quite an ironic title given how many people around the world began to be quarantined due to the pandemic. For some reason, it seems that Ubisoft has not become so preoccupied with that name and will probably change it soon.
In a new leak that has occurred on PlayStation Store, Ubisoft has squeezed out a new pre-launch patch for Rainbow Six Quarantine which apparently changes the name completely. Proceeding, Quarantine has been dropped with the new name Rainbow Six Parasite. Upon further digging, new images containing the game’s key art and new logo were also found in this update.

Currently a release date for Parasite has not been provided by Ubisoft, but the publisher recently gave us a better window for when we can expect it. As mentioned in a recent earnings call, Ubisoft said the game will be out sometime before the end of the second quarter of the coming fiscal year. This means that it will arrive by the end of September on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.
Provided that this name is changed to Rainbow Six Parasite is official, we should hear confirmation of it from Ubisoft soon. If this happens, we’ll be sure to update you on our game coverage hub right here.
