Ubisoft is preparing to move into the next big chapter for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The prologue for this chapter begins at the upcoming Six Invitational, which will see the top 16 teams in the competitive Siege world travel to Montreal to battle for the Year 3 championship and a record-setting prize pool. On Tuesday, Ubisoft revealed the full prize pool, while also teasing reveals for the future of its tactical shooter.
The Six Invitational's prize pool currently sits at over $1 million, a record for the Rainbow Six Pro League. This pot will continue to grow, with 30 percent of all revenue generated from the Road to the Six Invitational in-game event going towards the final prize total. The Road to the Six Invitational event is set to continue until February 17.

For those looking for new information on the Rainbow Six Siege game, in general, the Six Invitational promises that, as well. Ubisoft has confirmed that new details for the new Operation will be revealed, as the publisher continues issuing out the game's Season 4 content. Most recently, the game added Moroccan Operators Nomad and Kaid to the roster with the Operation Wind Bastion update, while also adding an all-new Fortress map that takes place inside a Moroccan palace.
The Six Invitational will be held at the Place Bell in Montreal and run from February 11-17, with the entirety of the tournament broadcast on Twitch. Shacknews will be following the action throughout the week and return with any news regarding what's next for Raibow Six Siege.
