Ubisoft has announced that 16 of the best Rainbow Six Siege esports teams from around the world will now be headed to Raleigh, North Carolina at the Six Major Raleigh, the first US Major in Rainbow Six history.

Should be entertaining. I've gotten back into this game recently. Glad it's still this popular, and the gameplay still feels so fresh. It's a nice change of pace after playing Apex and other BRs for so long.
