Beyond standard Rainbow Six Siege cosmetics, what is there for the esports fan to be excited about? Ubisoft has previously dabbled in the idea of specialized esports skins, allowing for fans to root on their favorite teams. Now the publisher is looking to push this idea further, announcing Phase 2 of the Rainbow Six esports Pilot Program.

Like the first phase, this will push forward the idea of revenue-sharing between Ubisoft and the various pro organizations that compete in Rainbow Six Siege esports. There will be 14 teams involved as partners and will receive a share of the proceeds from Pro Team and Pro League related in-game cosmetics.

Each of the teams involved in the Pilot Program will get a specialized cosmetic for a specific Operator, along with one of their weapons. Here's the full list:

  • Fnatic: Nomad (AK47M)
  • Cloud9: Valkyrie (MPX)
  • Nora-Rengo: Hibana (Type 89)
  • G2 Esports: Sledge (L85)
  • PENTA: Twitch (F2)
  • Team Empire: Bandit (MP7)
  • Natus Vincere: Doc (MP5)
  • INTZ eSports Club: Thermite (556XI)
  • Team Liquid: Vigil (K1A)
  • FaZe Clan: Caveira (M12)
  • MIBR: Buck (C8SFW)
  • Evil Geniuses: Ash (R4C)
  • Rogue: Jager (416-C)
  • Spacestation Gaming: Echo (MP5SD)

Both Pro League skins and Pro League Gold will be offered at a 70/30 revenue split. Meanwhile, the Road to Six Invitational will continue to contribute to the Pilot Program. These Pro Team bundles will be available to all users on September 10, with prices yet to be revealed. They'll be available through May 2020, at which point a fresh batch of skins will presumably be made available.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
