We finally have confirmation. The Six Invitational 2021 will begin on May 11 in Paris, France, featuring 19 teams from four different regions across the globe. The event will start with group stages, taking place between May 11 and 16, before heading into the playoffs (set to be broadcast from the Palais Brongniart venue in Paris) between May 19 - 23.
Despite the former delay, and the inability of Team Wildcard to compete due to travel complications, the tournament is planned to be taking place between these new dates and following very strict health and safety measures (you can read further into them here). This does mean that despite being a LAN event, there will be no audience, but we will finally get to see the premier tournament in the Rainbow Six: Siege esports calendar.
When the event does kick off in a few weeks, you can be sure to catch all the action on the official Rainbow Six Siege esports Twitch channel.
