Rainbow Six Pro League Outlines Esports Plans Through 2020

Rainbow Six Siege isn't slowing down its development and its esports league also looks to be full steam ahead for the next couple of years.


Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege's development isn't slowing down. And that means it isn't about to slow down on the esports end, either. on Tuesday, Ubisoft revealed its early plans for the Rainbow Six Pro League and it's set to run all the way through 2020.

The Rainbow Six Pro League will feature two six-month Seasons each year, with regular seasons running from June to November and December to May. They will conclude with Season Finales that will see the top two teams from the Asia-Pacific, European, Latin American, and North American regions all compete for a $275,000 prize pool. Prior to June's Season 8 that will run until November, a three month transitional Season 7 will run from March until May.

Look for two Majors to also take place each year. There's the February Six Invitational, as well a a new Six Major tournament set to run in August. The first edition of the latter tournament will take place in Paris this August, where 16 teams from around the world will compete for a $500,000 prize pool.
