Although the Six Invitational 2021 has been postponed to a later date, Ubisoft has just confirmed that they will be finishing the tactical shooter’s Year 5 with a “huge boom”.

Ubisoft will be hosting Rainbow Six Siege’s ‘year-end’ celebration on February 21st, which will be filled with exciting showmatches, future roadmaps, and more.

Despite the main SI event getting postponed, the Rainbow Six Siege community can still get to celebrate “all things Siege”. Find out about the Siege celebration and what to expect down below (via Ubisoft).


The development team will share their plan and priorities for the upcoming year during the the Future of Siege panel, including the brand new Rainbow SIx Siege season. Many surprises are planned during the celebration, so tune-in on February 21st to discover what is coming next in Rainbow Six Siege.


As a community, you express your love for Rainbow Six Siege by capturing unforgettable moments, crafting impeccable cosplay, or creating stunning art. We want to showcase some of our community’s talents throughout the show, and celebrate all of you, who bring this game to life.


Some of your favorite Rainbow Six Siege content creators will be competing online in a show match for a charity prize of $50,000 USD for AbleGamers, a charity that continually strives to create opportunities to enable play in order to foster inclusive communities, combat social isolation, and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.

The competitors will face each other on a Bo3 on the most iconic Rainbow Six Siege in-game events: Rainbow is Magic, Golden Gun and of course, Stadium.

The Rainbow Six Siege team has partnered with Get_Flanked and z1ronic to give you an episode of Logic Bomb exclusively created for the Six Invitational Community Celebration.  Developers JB Halle and Alex Karpazis Join the Logic Bomb team to answer questions on the past year of Rainbow Six Siege and give us a sneak peek on the future of the game.

As confirmed by Ubisoft, the SI Twitch drops will still continue until Feb. 21st, which might let Siege fans collect the phase 3 items such as the Tachanka Bundle. But this hasn’t been directly stated by Ubisoft as of now, but a more detailed update on the Drops will be shared soon.

As usual, players will be able to catch all these actions live at Twitch.tv/Rainbow6. In the meantime, the community hosted Six Memevitational, which was supposed to be held on Feb. 20/21, might get rescheduled to another date.

It seems like whenever they are pushed down, the Siege community bounces back stronger than ever. With Rainbow Six Siege recently surpassing 70 million players, it truly deserves to conclude its fifth year with a bang.
