Yesterday, Ubisoft announced that a selection of the top sixteen Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six teams worldwide will compete for the title of World Champion in the 2019 edition of the Six Invitational. The third year of the Six Invitational brings together fans, professional players, developers, and content creators to celebrate Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

This year’s championship features an over $1,000,000 prize pool, which is a record-setting pool for the league thanks to the passion of the Rainbow Six Siege community: 30% of all revenue made during the on-going Road To The Six Invitational in-game event is added to the pot. The in-game event is still available until February 17, 2019, for those looking to get in on the action.

The total prize pool across all official Year 3 tournaments is now more than $1,500,000.
