Ubisoft, Xbox, & ESL Announce Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League For Xbox One & PC

Ubisoft Montreal, Xbox, and ESL are teaming up to bring Rainbow Six fans the ultimate global eSports league for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

The studio announced today via press release that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League will begin this March and feature a prize pool of $100,000, supporting tournaments in both North America and Europe on Xbox One and PC. Season One will premier at the Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice, Poland on March 4 with eight matches in the European PC competition. More tournaments, including North American and Xbox One gameplay, will take place in the following weeks.

Season Finals will feature the top placing European and North American teams in a $50,000 tournament on both Xbox One and PC.

Details on the program and qualifiers are up at Rainbow6.com/ProLeague and teams can already start practicing in weekly cups at Play.ESLGaming.com/RainbowSix.

With teams of five facing off in elimination-style, objective-based game modes, Rainbow Six Siege could make for a pretty successful eSport. We’d love to see it featured in properly sponsored tournaments and events and can’t wait to see what Ubisoft Montreal will make of the just-announced Pro League.

    Sweet, brings back memories of the early 2000’s

    Seeing how Ubisoft is now partnered with Micro$oft for this it’s not so hard to understand why the Division was given the “parity” treatment for both consoles.

    Glad I stopped buying Ubisoft games since Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.

      sad to hear ur missing out on some really good games.

        From Ubisoft? Nah that french company has always been about hype and delivering very little. The crap from Watchdogs to the buggy messes of Assassin’s Creed. I’m not missing out on much.

          Yeah, last good game I played from ubi was Splinter cell’s blacklist.

          Most AAA games seem mediocre nowadays

          Rainbow 6 is solid ASF, The Division Beta is awesome.

          I can’t speak on Watch Dogs, i hear AC Syndicate was better.
