Ubisoft has announced that this past weekend's Six Invitational, a tournament for Rainbow Six: Siege in which Penta Sports took home the trophy and $200,000 USD, reached unprecedented figures for the game in terms of viewership, hitting a peak of 321,000 concurrent viewers, a new record for the game's esports scene.

This figure also represented a 184% increase in viewership when compared to the first Six Invitational's grand final in February 2017, which was a far smaller event in terms of prize money, teams, and venue. What's more is that over 6.2 million hours were watched across all channels between February 13 and 18.
