Rainbow Six Parasite: Technical Test appears on Xbox Series X | S and One

Rainbow Six Parasite

A thick blanket of mystery still hangs around Rainbow Six Parasite, Ubisoft's new cooperative first-person shooter, so called provisionally after the definitive abandonment of the Quarantine subtitle

The title was initially expected in 2020, but on end of 2019 was postponed along with games like Watch Dogs Legion and Immortals Fenyx Rising (at the time still known as Gods & Mosters) following the commercial disaster of Ghost REcon Breakpoint and the below-expected results of The Division 2. L 'last year it underwent a further postponement (destiny shared this time with Far Cry 6), which placed it on an unspecified date of the fiscal year 2021/2022. Meanwhile, the project has definitively abandoned the Quarantine subtitle (you can easily imagine why), assuming the provisional name Parasite.

In all of this, Rainbow Six Parasite has never officially shown itself, and all that (well little) that we know about the gameplay we owe it to an image and a video leaked last month, which showed three Operators of Siege - Vigil, Tachanka and Lion - dealing with a slime probably of an alien nature.

Today we are happy to see that something is finally moving. A player found the Rainbow Six [Codenamed] Parasite Technical Test sheet on the Microsoft Store, so it is highly likely that Ubisoft is conducting tests by invitation. The card also confirms the presence of a single-player mode and online cooperative multiplayer for 2-3 players, the PEGI 12 and the cross-generational nature of the project, since both Xbox One and Xbox Series X are indicated. | S. We can't wait to hear more.

A listing in Microsoft Store reveals that Ubisoft will probably hold a Rainbow Six Parasite Tech Test on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S consoles.

Soon enough, it’s going to be two years since the announcement of Rainbow Six Parasite – known as Quarantine at first – and still, we haven’t received anything new about the game except for the announcement teaser trailer. Even the change in the game’s name has not been announced officially, but thanks to multiple leaks, you can rest assured that the game isn’t going to be called Quarantine again.

  • According to an image from Microsoft Store, a user has spotted a technical test page for Rainbow Six [Codenamed] Parasite listed for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. This simply means the game will launch on both current-gen and last-gen consoles which continues Ubisoft’s support from Xbox One and PS4 probably until the end of this year.


    On the other hand, the phrase ‘Codenamed Parasite’ is a sign of the recent speculation around the game’s name. If the codename of the game is Parasite, then it remains a mystery what the official name would eventually be.

    The release date of the Rainbow Six Parasite Tech Test has not been shared in the store’s listing, but it’s an invitation-only event, so you will probably need to sign up for it when Ubisoft officially announces the technical test phase.

    Rainbow Six Parasite is a three-player co-op first-person shooter where you need to work along with your teammates to finish your objectives before the threatening enemies take you down. Similar to Siege, you will choose an operator in Parasite as well, which includes some operators from siege such as Ela, Vigil, and Tachanka.

    The game is expected to be released later this year to earlier in 2022, based on the financial details of Ubisoft.
