The first-ever Rainbow Six Siege World Cup was scheduled for the summer of 2021. According to the organizers, 20 teams were expected to feature in the inaugural event. Fourteen teams were invited directly by Ubisoft, and six other teams had to compete and win in the qualifier rounds to participate in the World Cup.
31 teams from different countries and regions were to participate in the qualifier stages. Unfortunately, the event had to be postponed due to the Covid 19 pandemic that hit the world during that time.
By 2020, R6 had more than 70 million active players- the latest version of the game was released in January 2022. The version is known as the Rainbow Six Extraction and features most of the characters in Siege.
