Rainbow Six Parasite Gameplay Leaked, Ubisoft Responds
Rainbow Six Quarantine is being renamed, with Rainbow Six Parasite apparently being a tentative title, and over an hour of its gameplay leaked online. In fact, Ubisoft acknowledged the leaked footage, telling Eurogamer, “We can confirm this is a glimpse of our upcoming Rainbow Six game. Recently, we ran an internal test for the game and unfortunately some of the details became public. This clip is a work-in-progress gameplay footage. We’ll share more details about the game later this year.”
You’ll notice the developer did not mention the game by the Parasite moniker, meaning it could be called something entirely different. We’ll find out more about it later this year.
The Medium and Observer Are Launching Physically
Two of Bloober Team’s most recent games — Observer: System Redux and The Medium — will be getting physical editions, thanks to a partnership with Koch Media. Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno said, “It’s most important to us to listen to our fans and they did ask for a box release of our award-winning horror games,” though it’s unclear when the physical editions will launch. For now, you can purchase both games digitally on their respective platforms.
