Ubisoft have revealed that the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Invitational 2022 will take place from Feb. 8 to Feb. 20, 2022.

It's an exciting time for Rainbow Six esports. Ubisoft have announced that the Rainbow Six Invitational is set to kick-off in February this year. The Six Invitational 2022 will see 20 of the world’s best teams compete for the title of World Champions.

The event will take place in Stockholm, Sweden after recent regulations and event restrictions forced the event to relocate from its original Quebec, Canada location. Sadly, though, the event will not have a live audience and will instead be held in a LAN environment following strict sanitary measures.

Aside from the competition, the event will also be revealing details on the next season of Rainbow Six Siege on February 19 and updates on the future of the game and its esports scene during the Year 7 Roadmap on February 20.

  • February 8 – 12: Group Stage
