It seems that only moments after reporting on a new patch for Rainbow Six Quarantine, some new information has come to light. Namely a new icon for the game, support for remote play, and most important of all – the game being renamed to Rainbow Six Parasite.
Rainbow Six Parasite – Getting A Brand New Name
It seems that Rainbow Six Parasite could be the new name for Rainbow Six Quarantine.
According to MP1st, the site has managed to get hands on the art materials, namely the XMB icon for the game from the PKG files of the game.
In addition, an image that shows remote play on the PlayStation Vita that confirms the name once more.
MP1st discovered the above by looking at the games listing on orbispatches. Another site which is known for hosting and listing the contents of the PlayStation Network. The same site that gave us insight into The Red Door.
Rainbow Six Parasite is definitely Ubisoft taking a chance at rebranding the game to something more proper, considering how the term Quarantine is something that fans and gamers alike could have problems with the word.
Considering the events of 2020 and 2021, the rebranding is something worth considering.
We do know that Rainbow Six Quarantine and Far Cry 6 are set to release in the first-fiscal quarter of 2021, which starts at April 2021.
This is definitely a surprising change of pace.
Rainbow Six Parasite is going to be the PvE experience in the Rainbow Six universe, where Rainbow Six Siege is the dedicated PvP experience. While Outbreak was a limited-time game mode during Operation Chimera, it showed an early look at what Parasite could be like.
For now, we have yet to hear from Ubisoft about the new development and if they plan on releasing new information about the update to Rainbow Six Quarantine unearthed today by the community.
For now, we have only got silence from Ubisoft, and its only Monday. Let’s see if we will hear any official updates regarding the game in the days that follow.
