Ubisoft and BLAST recently announced the launch of a new global esports circuit for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, called “BLAST R6”. The 2023 season will bring new destinations for major events and a new competitive structure designed to elevate and grow the Rainbow Six Siege esports scene.
Built around nine regions, including Europe, North America, Brazil, Japan, South Korea, Hispanic Latin America, Asia, Oceania, and MENA, BLAST R6 is set to launch during the week of March 6. In May of this year, BLAST R6 will welcome fans and teams to BLAST's hometown, Copenhagen, Denmark to conclude Stage 1 for the very first Major of the season. Then, in November the second Major of the season will be held in the United States, followed by the Six Invitational 2024, which will be held in Brazil to crown the new World Champions.
The BLAST R6 Majors will follow an entirely new competitive structure, divided into three phases. The first phase will gather 16 teams from all nine regions. At the end of the first phase of the Major, the top eight teams will advance to the second phase, joining eight other teams that will have directly qualified by performing well in their closed leagues.
The second phase will see 16 teams compete and the top eight teams will qualify for the playoffs to become the BLAST R6 Major Champions of the corresponding stage and win a part of the USD $750,000 prize pool. Players can check out the nine regions and their paths to the Majors on the official announcement here.
Overall, this partnership between Ubisoft and BLAST promises to bring exciting changes to the Rainbow Six Siege esports scene, making it more accessible and engaging for players and fans alike. Stay tuned for more updates on BLAST R6 and get ready to experience the excitement of one of the fastest-growing esports circuits in the world.
