Ubisoft confirmed recently that they’d be changing Rainbow Six Quarantine’s name before its launch- a good idea, considering the situation with COVID all over the world right now. Recently, files uploaded for the game to the PSN servers suggested that its new name would be Rainbow Six Parasite. That, however, is not the case it seems.

In a statement provided to PC GamesN, Ubisoft that some details on recent internal playtesting rounds of the game at the company became publicly available. The name, Parasite, was being used as a placeholder for the same purposes, but is not the final name that Ubisoft have settled on for the game. The publisher says that more details on the tactical co-op shooter and its new name will be shared “soon”.

“While we recently shared that we will be changing the name of Rainbow Six Quarantine, ‘Parasite’ is only a placeholder that our internal teams use,” Ubisoft says. “Recently, we ran an internal test for the game and some of its details became public. We can confirm this is a glimpse of the upcoming game, and we will share more details, including the official name, soon.”

Rainbow Six Quarantine – or whatever it ends up being called – is currently on track to launch before October of this year. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more details on the game.
