Ubisoft says Rainbow Six Quarantine is set to launch sometime early 2020.

During a Ubisoft financial call from yesterday, CEO Yves Guillemot said the game was on track to launch sometime in the fiscal year, which ends in March 2020: “Our games line-up for fiscal 2019-20—which also includes Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods & Monsters—is one of our strongest in the last five years.”

The Rainbow Six Quarantine trailer from E3 2019 teases rapidly spreading diseases, dim-lit areas, and what looks to be a zombie or infected enemy type. With Gods & Monsters primed to launch within a similar time frame, the company does seem poised for a strong next few months.

The report also highlights a strong year for the company, with “first-quarter net bookings that came in well above target.”

Guillemot specifically references Rainbox Six Siege and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey as big contributors to the strong first quarter. Additionally, the CEO praises Watch Dogs: Legion for its innovative gameplay and says Ubisoft is “ideally positioned” for the future.

Rainbow Six Siege has been a heavy-hitter for Ubisoft since it released back in 2015.

Last month, the Escapist’s Riley Constantine reported on Ubisoft’s concerns that next-generation consoles could negatively impact the player base.
