Ubisoft Announces The Return Of The Six Invitational 2022

Ubisoft announced today they are bringing back an in-person version of The Six Invitational 2022 to Montreal in February 2022. If you're not familiar with the event, this is the pinnacle of the Rainbow Six Siege's competitive year as they gather winners from previous events and other invited winners to form a 20 teams competition across the four main regions of the esports circuit. The last time the event was in a physical location was 202, just a month before the pandemic shut the world down, and last year had to be held online. This year they will at least be bringing back teams to compete offline in a LAN environment and will be watching to see if it's possible to bring back a live crowd to the event.
