Ubisoft has confirmed the next big event for Rainbow Six: Siege, and that event is Containment. What you may guess from the name is that this event has been inspired by the next Rainbow Six game, Rainbow Six: Extraction. The Containment event will begin on August 3rd and will be playable until August 24th. The Consulate map has been reworked to be a nest for the Chimera where players will have to work together to destroy the nest, or defend it.


Here is the description for the Containment event:

Containment will introduce a new game mode, Nest Destruction, that will have players fight over a Nest. On one hand, attackers will be given a two-tiered objective scenario: destroy the nest to open the final objective and win the round. On the other hand, to be the victorious ones, defenders will have to rely on melee attacks and Oryx’s Ramah Dash to stop their opponents. Of course, there is always a last solution to secure the win – players can rely on the old but efficient way: get rid of the opposing team entirely.

Rainbow Six: Extraction was recently delayed by Ubisoft, alongside Riders Republic. The new release window date for Rainbow Six: Extraction is January 2022 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia and Luna. In a statement about the delay, Ubisoft wrote:

Our ambition with Rainbow Six Extraction is to deliver a full-fledged AAA experience that changes the way you play and think about cooperative games. With unique features like Missing In Action or The Sprawl, every mission is set to be a tense and challenging experience in which you’ll lead the elite operators of Rainbow Six in a fight against a lethal and evolving alien threat.

We are embracing the opportunity to take additional time to bring this vision to life in the way it deserves in January 2022. We are confident this will ensure Rainbow Six Extraction is the immersive, cooperative, and thrilling experience we set out to create, and the one you aspire to play.
